Discrete Probability Distributions
Part of the Probability For Dummies Cheat Sheet
In probability, a discrete distribution has either a finite or a countably infinite number of possible values. That means you can enumerate or make a listing of all possible values, such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 1, 2, 3, . . .
There are several kinds of discrete probability distributions, including discrete uniform, binomial, Poisson, geometric, negative binomial, and hypergeometric.
