First, we will check if the sum of the probabilities is equal to 1. 0.46 + 0.36 + 0.18 =1 Next we will look at the probabilities in the table and note that all of the values fall inclusively between 0 and 1. Since both conditions are met, we can say that the distribution is a probability distribution. ...
