Heya got a small doubt here
most of the discrete random variables utilize simple examples of situations like 3 coin toss or 2 dice rolls or girl/boys born. These examples are simple in the sense that we can chart out the entire sample space and discrete values of the random variable. We can then have a complete frequency or probability distribution.
but what happens in situations when it is not possible to prepare the complete sample space. say I note down childbirths in a hospital for 30 days. Can I use this sample and convert it to proportions and give out the probability of no of childbirths on a given date? (stupid example I know)
