A Random Variable (random quantity or stochastic variable) is a set of possible values from a random experiment.

The domain of a random variable is called sample space. For example, in the case of a coin toss experiment, there are only two possible outcomes, namely heads or tails. A random variable can be either discrete or continuous. The discrete random variable takes only certain values such as 1, 2, 3, etc., and a continuous random variable can take any value within a range such as the height of persons.
