## ABSTRACT

The discrete form of this distribution is described in Section 10.2. The continuous form is basically similar. The probability of occurrence is constant for all values of

Y

in the interval

y

to

y

. When graphed, the pdf produces a straight horizontal line running from

y

to

y

at the distance of

f

(

y

) from the horizontal axis and the cdf produces a curve of constant slope rising from

F

(

y

) to

F

(

y

). In the case of a continuous random variable,

N

(

y

) is undefined, since the interval between adjacent

Y

values is infinitesimally small. However, since it is a constant and serves only as a scalar, it can be set equal to unity. Then

and the pdf is

(11.1)

Note that the pdf is a constant and is a function of the length of the interval between

y

and

y

.

The cumulative probability function is
