Lecture# Random Variables and Expected Value

Description

This lecture covers the concept of random variables, probability distributions, and expected values. It explains how to calculate probabilities for random variables and how to determine the expectation and variance of random variables. The lecture also delves into examples involving biased coins, dice rolls, and Bernoulli trials, illustrating how to apply the theoretical concepts in practice.
