Q:
# Is the number of light bulbs that burn out in the next year in a room with 19 bulbs a discrete random variable, continuous random variable, or not a random variable?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:DiscreteStep-by-step explanation:Given that we have to find the number of light bulbs that burn out in the next year in a room with 19 bulbs WE see that if X is the random variable then X can take values as0,1,2....190 is one extreme where no bulb burns out and 19 where all bulbs burn out.We find that this random variable can never take values between two integers. In other words these are countable and hence discrete.
