    P(U=V)?

    Suppose we are tossing a FAIR coin and we have the random variables

    <br />
U(H)=0, U(T)=1,  <br />
V(H)=1, V(T)=0



    What are their CDF?

    Now, is it true that P(U=V)=0? If so, why?

    I am mostly lost in the second part.

    The second part means: Is it true that V is never equal to U? Namely, the probability of them being equal, is it 0? I think you should be able to take it from here.
