# Ch 7: Probability: Discrete & Continuous Distributions

Learn about discrete and continuous distributions in probability through these short and quick lessons. Use the lesson transcripts to easily find definitions for key terms and the quizzes to test your knowledge of the material.

## Probability: Discrete and Continuous Distributions - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

The expert instructors who lead these lessons show you how to use discrete probability and binomial experiments to solve problems. You'll practice finding binomial probabilities after watching lessons that show you the formulas you need to complete this process. These lessons take probability concepts and break them down into small chunks to make your study of this topic simpler and faster. Videos are all followed by self-assessment quizzes that you can use to determine what areas you need to review and which concepts you've mastered. The lessons in this chapter teach you:

• How to use tables to find binomial probabilities
• What formulas to use for determining the mean of a binomial random variable
• How to graph probability distributions
• How to interpret the expected value of a continuous random variable
