Lets say I have a random variable X that can take values 1,2,3,4 and 5 with probabilities 0.2 0.3 0.1 0.25 0.10 0.05.
My question is how I can determine the Cumulative distribution function and how I can use it to generate the numbers from X?

I'm inclined to suggest to the OP that s/he make a spinner, with the area for each number weighted according to the probability of that number occuring.
