A quick question, if I have a uniform random variable X with a range (1,2,3,...,n) and mass function given by
What does the graph of the probability distribution function Fx actually look like?
Hopefully it's easy to describe...
I know it's piecewise constant. It takes the value of 0 for x<1.
and then jumps to a value of 1 at x=1. Does it then jump by 1/2 at x=2 and jump by 1/3 at x=3 so on?
Thanks a million for your reply. Quite literally all we have in the notes regarding the graphing of the pdf is:
So I guess you can see where I came up with my answer in the edit above, so I would have thought that it would increase.Fx can be described in words as follows: it is a right-continuous step
function which increases by jumps of size located at , j = 1, 2, . . .
So the value at in the problem above would be 1/2 and not 1+1/2 is that correct?
