###### Asked in Statistics

### What is of discrete uniform distribution?

A discrete uniform distribution assigns the same probability to
two or more possible events. For example, there is a discrete
uniform distribution associated with flipping a coin: 'heads' is
assigned a probability of 1/2 as is the event 'tails'. (Note that
the probabilities are equal or 'uniform'.) There is also a discrete
uniform distribution associated with tossing a die in that there is
a 1/6 probability for seeing each possible side of the die.

### Does this means that all symmetric distribution are normal Explain?

Don't know what "this" is, but all symmetric distributions are
not normal. There are many distributions, discrete and continuous
that are not normal. The uniform or binomial distributions are
examples of discrete symmetric distibutions that are not normal.
The uniform and the beta distribution with equal parameters are
examples of a continuous distribution that is not normal.
The uniform distribution can be discrete or continuous.

### What are some examples of distribution function?

I will assume that you are asking about probability distribution
functions. There are two types: discrete and continuous. Some might
argue that a third type exists, which is a mix of discrete and
continuous distributions.
When representing discrete random variables, the probability
distribution is probability mass function or "pmf." For continuous
distributions, the theoretical distribution is the probability
density function or "pdf."
Some textbooks will call pmf's as discrete probability
distributions.
Common pmf's are binomial, multinomial, uniform discrete and
Poisson.
Common pdf's are the uniform, normal, log-normal,...

### What does uniform probability mean in math?

Uniform probability can refer to a discrete probability
distribution for which each outcome has the same probability.
For a continuous distribution, it requires that the probability

### Is the uniform probability distribution is symmetric about the mode?

Yes, the uniform probability distribution is symmetric about the
mode. Draw the sketch of the uniform probability distribution. If
we say that the distribution is uniform, then we obtain the same
constant for the continuous variable.
* * * * *
The uniform probability distribution is one in which the
probability is the same throughout its domain, as stated above. By
definition, then, there can be no value (or sub-domain) for which
the probability is greater than elsewhere. In other words, a
