Discrete Random Variable X 2 ex: flip a coin twice r.v. X = number of heads (now each possible outcome is attached to a number) 2 1 1 0 Sample Space – set of possible outcomes Assign a numerical value for each possible { } TT HT TH HH S , , , =
Flip coin twice experiment can lead to many random variables 3 S = { hh, th, ht, tt } Define hh th ht tt r.v. X # of heads Y # of tails Z 0 if the same 1 if different W 0 if X=Y 1 if XY
