Bernoulli probability distribution DSAP, NUS, Semester 1, 2008/2009 – 152 A random variable X has a Bernoulli distribution if it only takes the values 0 and 1. That is, if its p.m.f. is x 0 1 p X ( x ) 1 - p p for some p , 0 < p < 1 . If X has a Bernoulli distribution with parameter p , then E[ X ] = p and Var[ X ] = p (1 - p ) = pq where q = 1 - p .
