All answers should be complete sentences.

1. When rolling a die, is this an example of a discrete or continuous random variable? Explain your reasoning.

It is a discrete random variable because the values of the variable is 1 of the 6 values in the set (1,2,3,4,5,6), Since this set is infinite, the random variable is discrete.|

2. Calculate the mean and standard deviation of the probability distribution created by rolling a die. Either show work or explain how your answer was calculated.
