Outline Some Common Discrete Distributions The Bernoulli Random Variable The Binomial Random Variable The Hypergeometric Random Variable The Negative Binomial Random Variable A r.v. X is called Bernoulli if it takes only two values. The two values are referred to as success (S) and failure (F), or are re-coded as 1 and 0. Thus, always, S X = { 0 , 1 } .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
