0 There is one type of probability distribution function that can capture, and graph, the nuances of random variables of any type. This kind of function is called a cumulative probability distribution function. It gives the probabilityy that the value returned by a random variable will be less than or equal to any particular value. The graph of a cumulative probability distribution function always rises from left to right, as in Figure 2. Take a moment to think this through a few times because we are not used to seeing this kind of graph.

Events involving discrete outcomes can be defined by listing all the outcomes included or by stating some rule for membership. Events involving outcomes that could be anywhere on a continuum of numbers are often defined by giving the top and bottom of the range of numbers to be included in the event. Another common technique is to give one number, defining the eventt as all outcomes with numbers less than or equal to that number. Random variables can be used to succinctly define events. e. e. {(1,1)}.

It concentrated on situations where there was just a finite number of outcomes, such as the roll of a die, or a hand in a card game. It made perfect sense to talk about the probability of an outcome and to calculate the probabilityy of an eventt by adding up the probabilities of the outcomes they included. ) The sum of the probabilities of all the outcomes from a situation is one, because it is certain that one of those outcomes will result, by definition. Later, people moved on to think about situations where the outcomes could be any point on a continuum, such as the life of an electric light bulb.
