Random variables and probability distributions are two of the most important concepts in statistics.

A random variable assigns unique numerical values to the outcomes of a random experiment; this is a process that generates uncertain outcomes. A probability distribution assigns probabilities to each possible value of a random variable. The two basic types of probability [ ].
