    Discrete Random Variable, Binomial Distribution


    In this module we will learn about discrete random variables, their distributions and properties. Of specific interest would be a binomial random variable, its distribution and applications.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discrete random variable, distribution, mean and standard deviation
    • Binomial random variable and its distribution
