Probability distributions

Given that there are two types of random variables (discrete and continuous), we have two types of distributions:

1. Discrete probability distributions, and
2. Continuous probability distributions (also known as probability density function, or density function, or just density).

Examples of discrete probability distributions include:

a. Uniform
b. Binomial
c. Poisson
d. Hypergeometric
e. Others

Examples of continuous probability distributions include:

a. Uniform
b. Normal
c. Exponential
d. Gamma
e. Others
