### Introduction

This Section introduces the simplest type of continuous probability distribution which features a continuous random variable $X$ with probability density function $f\left(x\right)$ which assumes a constant value over a finite interval.

#### Prerequisites

• understand the concepts of probability
• be familiar with the concepts of expectation and variance
• be familiar with the concept of continuous probability distribution

#### Learning Outcomes

• explain what is meant by the term uniform distribution
• calculate the mean and variance of a uniform distribution
