The Bernoulli distribution characterizes the coin  toss.  Specifically, there are two events  X =0,1 with  X =1 occurring with probability  p .  The probability  distribution function  P [ X ] can be written as: Fall 2005 Lecture X 2 ( 29 1 [ ] 1 x x P X p p - = -
Next, we need to develop the probability of  X + Y   where both  X  and  Y  are identically distributed.  If  the two events are independent, the probability  becomes: Fall 2005 Lecture X 3 [ ] [ ] [ ] ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 1 2 , 1 1 1 x y x y x y x y P X Y P X P Y p p p p p p - - - - + = = - - = -

Now, this density function is only concerned with  three outcomes  Z = X + Y ={0,1,2}.  There is only one  way each for  Z =0 or  Z =2.  Specifically for  Z =0,  X =0  and  Y =0.  Similarly, for  Z =2,  X =1 and  Y =1.   However, for  Z =1 either  X =1 and  Y =0 or  X =0 or  Y =1.  Thus, we can derive: Fall 2005 Lecture X 4

### 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.
