Hi guys, I need some help in creating a random experiment for a discrete random variable!! I can't use anything original like the "tossing a coin" example used all the time! I need something creative, new and interesting!! It would also be appreciated if you could assign a sample space to the random experiment so i know how to come up with my own.Also if its possible could you define the random variable aswell???

    map out a circle of like 1ft radius and then drop 10 like coins or pieces of paper from like 6 or 8 ft above, and assign random variable to number of objects that land inside circle or something like that

    okay. thats a bit complex haha. what would the sample space be?

    for my example 0 to 10

    okay how would you assign probabilities to it?

    selection of numbered balls, 1-100, say from a bag

    sample space =100

    umm see with mine the probabilities are unknown most likely will follow a Poisson distribution though you would have to base it on the experimental probilities

    ohh coz u see, in the tossing a coin exp, the probabilities can ber figured out. so it should be something similiar. but not too common

    use uzma suggestion probabilities would be 1/100

    okay.so with uzma's suggestion, would there be doubles of one number or exactly one number

    exactly one number

    so for example 10 balls. the probability of getting any one ball is 1/10?

    okay thanks. but i was wondering if getting different probabilities for each ball would be possible?

    look...sample space contains 10 balls probability of selecting any ball randomly is 1/10

    if the balls r of differnt colors let 5 are green and 5 are red then p(green ball)=5/10
