Most Chapter 7 textbook exercises give you a complete probability distribution to work from. Easy! What if you are presented only with frequencies and have to construct your own distribution? This happens on test questions. In this video I show you how to handle them.
Probability Distribution: a table, formula, or graph that describes the values of a random variable and the probability associated with these values
Discrete probability distributions are typically presented as tables. A simple example:
The probability of each X occurring, P(x), is equal to the frequency of that X, fx, divided by the total number of observations (n)

A table, formula, or graph that shows all possible values a random variable can assume, together with their associated probabilities, is called a(n):
A deck of 52 cards has four suits: hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs. There are 13 cards in each suit. You draw one card at random from the deck. What is the probability it’s a heart?
