```    Q:  The random numbers generator of a computer produces values that are
uniformly distributed from zero to one.  A programmer doesn't want
his program to print the same message everytime that a user reaches
a certain point in the program.  He wants the program to print:

Hooray]         20% of the time,
Yep.            40% of the time,
Bullseye]        5% of the time, and
Fantastic]      35% of the time.

He can do this by including in the program an instruction that
tells the program to do different things depending on the random
number generated.

a.  Sketch the distribution of random numbers and indicate areas and
boundary values so that the 4 comments will appear as desired.

unchanging value.
Example:     Suppose that we accurately record the amount of change
carried by each person attending a class on a particular
day.  The mean for that population is a constant, say,
53 cents.  It has one value which will not change.  (On the
other hand, if we consider drawing a random sample of 5
from the class and calculating a sample mean, we are
dealing with a random variable.  If we draw one sample
it will have one mean, say, 82 cents.  If we draw another
sample, it almost always will have another mean, say,
45 cents, etc.)

```    A:  The principal distinction is that a discrete random variable can assume
a countable number of values, while a continuous random variable can
assume an uncountably infinite number of values.

Examples of a discrete random variable:
a.  The number of heads obtained when a coin is flipped three
times.
b.  The number that turns up when a die is rolled.
c.  The number of people waiting in line at a movie theater

Examples of a continuous random variable:
a.  The height of a human
b.  The amount of rainfall
c.  Time required to run a mile
