Chapter 6 - Continuous Random Variables DSC 205 A/E/L The Uniform Distribution - the probability of occurrence is the same for all values of x. It is sometimes called a rectangular distribution. For example, if a fair die is thrown, the probability of obtaining any one of the six possible outcomes is 1/6. Since all outcomes are equally probable, the
