## Consider the experiment of tossing a coin twice. a. List the experimental outcomes. b. Define a random variable that represents the number of heads occurring on the two tosses. c. Show what value the random variable would assume for each of the experimental outcomes. d. Is this random variable discrete or continuous?

a.

To determine

List the outcomes of tossing a coin twice.

### Explanation of Solution

A coin is tossed two times.

The two possible outcomes of tossing a coin are, Head (H) and Tail (T). Thus, the outcomes of tossing a coin twice are, {(H,H),(

b.

To determine

Find a random variable that represents the number of heads occurring on the two tosses.

c.

To determine

Find the values that the random variable can take.

d.

To determine

Check whether the random variable is discrete or continuous.
