Joint Distributions for Discrete R.V. Consider 2 Discrete r.v. 's r.v. X with possible values x = x 1 , x 2 , . .. r.v. Y with possible values y = y 1 , y 2 , . .. The joint distribution function is a list of outcomes of X and Y: (x 1 , y 1 ), (x 1 , y 2 ), (x 1 , y 3 ), (x 2 , y 1 ), (x 2 , y 2 ), . ... plus the probability associated with each outcome
