What is a probability distribution? -A table or an equation that links each outcome of a statistical experiment with its probability of occurrence -The table below, which associates each outcome with its probability, is an example of a probability distribution -The above table represents the probability distribution of the random variable X. Number of headsProbability 00.25 10.50 20.25
