Identifying Probability Distributions In Exercises 9 and 10, determine whether the table represents a probability distribution. If it is a probability distribution, sketch its graph. If it is not a probability distribution, state any properties that are not satisfied.
x  0  1  2  3  4  5 
P(x) 






Whether the table of values represents a probability distribution. If it is a probability distribution, graph the distribution and if it is not a probability distribution, state the properties not satisfied to be a probability distribution.
Given Information:
The table of values and probabilities:
Consider the provided table.
The two properties that must be satisfied for a distribution to be a probability distribution are:
1. All the probabilities must be a number between 2. 3.0 and 14. 5.
6. Sum of all probabilities must be equal to 7. 18. 9.
In the provided table of values, all the probabilities lies between
To check whether the second property is satisfied, sum up all the probabilities and it must be equal to 1.
As the sum of all probabilities is equal to 1, the second property is also satisfied
