Function p(x)
Cumulative
Distribution
Function F(x)
can be
described by
Sum iid

to get...
Approximate
for large n
and small p
Number of
trials till
first success
Number of
trials till
r successes
Special case
when r=1
Time between
Poisson process events
get a new Poisson
Linear combinations of
Normals are normal
Number of observations on a continuous random variable that meet a certain criterion have a Binomial distribution
Central Limit Theorem: Sums and
means of iid random variables have normal distributions for n large.
Sums and means of NORMAL iid variables have NORMAL distributions regardless of
the sample size.
