Explanation:

A random variable is a real number associated with the outcomes of a random experiment. eg. if a die is rolled and X denotes the number obtained on the die, then X is a random variable which can result in any of the following values 1,2,3,4,5 or 6, each with equal probability.

Discrete Random Variable: A random variable that assumes only a finite or countable number of possible values.

E.g. Marks obtained by a student in a test from 100 (the possibile marks would be from 0 to 100 and thus is countable)

It has a countable number of possible values.

Continuous Random Variable: A random variable that can assume an infinite and uncountable set of values.

E.g. Height of students in a class, Time it takes to travel from one point to another

It can take all values in a given interval of numbers.

Here we usually mean any value within a particular interval and not at a point.

Discrete Random Variables represent counted data and Continuous Random Variables represent measured data.

What is the range of the function $y={x}^{2}$?

The domain and range of $y=\mathrm{sin}x$ is

A)$R,[0,\mathrm{\infty}]$

B)$R,[-1,1]$

C)$R,[-\mathrm{\infty},\mathrm{\infty}]$

D)$R,[1,\mathrm{\infty}]$Mean of the squares of the deviations from mean is called the:

Variance

Standard deviation

Quartile deviation

In most cases,_____variables are not considered to be equal unless they are exactly the same.

A local newspaper in a large city wants to assess support for the construction of a highway bypass around the central business district to reduce downtown traffic. They survey a random sample of 1152 residents and find that 543 of them support the bypass. Construct and interpret a 95% confidence interval to estimate the proportion of residents who support construction of the bypass.
