Expected vlue nd vrince of continuous rndom vriles. Description of continuous rndom vriles (crv) A continuous rndom vrile tkes on n uncountly infinite numer of vlues. The set of possile vlues of every crv is n entire intervl, finite or infinite. Continuous rndom vriles usully re mesurements. Exmples of continuous rndom vriles Weight nd height of people. Depth mesure in certin loction of lke. The mount of sugr in n ornge. The time required to run mile. The computer time (in seconds) required to process certin progrm. Mesurement of ny physicl quntity with dditive rndom error (noise). The mount of rin flls in the certin city over fixed period of time. Definition Let X e continuous rndom vrile. The proility density function of X is function f such tht for ny two numers nd with P X f x dx 1
