My undergrad probability theory course just got to random variables and distribution functions. Up until this point, the material was very straightforward and I could understand what was being done, but I feel that I am just not seeing the jump between probability with sets and probability with random variables/distribution functions. From what I understand, the RV will replace the set allowing us to have a sort of shortcut in the calculations, but after that I am not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
