# Finding Frequency and Probability Distributions In Exercises 5 and 6, (a) find the frequency distribution for the random variable and (b) find the probability distribution for the random variable. See Examples 2 and 3.Coin toss Four coins are tossed. A random variable assigns the number 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 to each possible outcome, depending on the number of heads in the outcome.

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The frequency distribution for the random variable when four coins are tossed.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided information that is four coins are tossed. A random variable assigns the number 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 to each possible outcome, depending on the number of heads appears on tossed.

Calculation:

Consider the provided information that four coins are tossed and the random variable represents the number of heads in each possible outcome.

Let, x be the random variable that represents the number of heads in each possible outcome and f(x) represent the frequency of the random variable.

The possible outcome are shown below when four coins are tossed

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The probability distribution for the random variable when the four coins are tossed.
