A random variable is a real-valued function with a domain in
the sample space S.
f f : S ? R
Example Example: roll two dice
random variable:
• # on green die
• sum of roll (green die + red die)
• product of roll

Random Variables
In general, we can obtain a random variable by simply
assigning a numerical value assigning a numerical value to each outcome of a given
experiment.
How can we create a random variable from this experiment?
