One spins a wheel and look at the angle of the pointer. lf the angle is within [0',180'), then one gets 1000 dollars, otherwise he/she gets 0 dollars.

The random variable X is discrete if the set of real values it can take if finite or countable, e.g. {0, 1,2, 3, . . . , }. Example: Paul rolls a defect dice with numbers 1,2,3,3,3,3 on six faces. Random experiment: which number? Random variable: X gives numbers to the possible out- comes. Definition: The space (support) of X is the set of real numbers {r : X(s) : o, s € ,S}. ln the book, the space of X is denoted by S, same as sample space. rSpaceofX:S:
