# Determine whether each function or table in Problems 15-18 represents a discrete probability distribution. x Pr(x) 3 1/6 4 1/3 5 1/3 6 1/6

To determine

Whether the values of the table is a discrete probability distribution or not if the table is given as,

 x Pr(x) 3 1/6 4 1/3 5 1/3 6 1/6
Explanation

Given Information:

The table is,

 x Pr(x) 3 1/6 4 1/3 5 1/3 6 1/6

Explanation:

A probability of a discrete random variable x is known as discrete probability distribution if it satisfies the condition that for any value of x the probability must be 0Pr(x)1 and the sum of all probability must be 1.

Consider the table,

 x Pr(x) 3 1/6=0.167 4 1/3=0.333 5 1/3=0.333 6 1/6=0
