### What do you mean by random variable?

A random variable is a **variable whose value is unknown or a function that assigns values to each of an experiment's outcomes**. A random variable can be either discrete (having specific values) or continuous (any value in a continuous range).

### What is a random variable in probability?

A random variable is a numerical description of the outcome of a statistical experiment. ... The probability distribution for a random variable describes **how the probabilities are distributed over the values of the random variable**.

### What is a random variable What are the various types of random variables?

A random variable, usually written X, is a variable whose possible values are numerical outcomes of a random phenomenon. There are two types of random variables, **discrete and continuous**.

### What is meant by spectrum of a random variable?

**The set of values which X takes** is called the Spectrum of the random variable. If S is a sample space of an experiment then we can define more than one random variable on S. The set R X = { X ( x ) : x ∈ S } is called the range of X.

### What is random variable and random experiment?

A random variable is **a variable whose possible values are the numerical outcomes of a random experiment**. Therefore, it is a function which associates a unique numerical value with every outcome of an experiment. Further, its value varies with every trial of the experiment.

### What is meant by random experiment?

In particular, a random experiment is **a process by which we observe something uncertain**. After the experiment, the result of the random experiment is known. An outcome is a result of a random experiment. The set of all possible outcomes is called the sample space.

### How do you find a random variable?

The Random Variable is **X = "The sum of the scores on the two dice"**. Let's count how often each value occurs, and work out the probabilities: 2 occurs just once, so P(X = 2) = 1/36. 3 occurs twice, so P(X = 3) = 2/36 = 1/18.

### What do you mean by random process?

Random Process. A random process is **a time-varying function that assigns the outcome of a random experiment to each time instant:** X(t). For a fixed (sample path): a random process is a time varying function, e.g., a signal.

### What are the 3 types of random variable?

**Discrete, Continuous, and Singular**. In other words, there are three 'pure type' random variables, namely discrete random variables, continuous random variables, and singular random variables.

### How do you solve a random variable in statistics?

The formula is: **μx = x1*p1 + x2*p2 + hellip; + x2*p2 = Σ xipi**. In other words, multiply each given value by the probability of getting that value, then add everything up. For continuous random variables, there isn't a simple formula to find the mean.
