Expected Value and Variance Random Variable (r.v.) Expected Value Variance 10.3 Random Variables A random variable is a real–valued function whose domain is the sample space of a random experiment. In other words, a random variable is a function X : Ω 7→ R , where Ω is the sample space of the random experiment under consideration and R represents the set of all real numbers. Expected Value and Variance Random Variable (r.v.) Expected Value Variance 10.4 Expected Value The expected value of a discrete r.v. X , denoted by E [ X ] is defined by E [ X ] = X x x × p X ( x ) Remark: The expected value of a discrete r.v. is a

### 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.

• 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.
