A professional gambler claims that he has loaded a die so that the outcomes of 1,2,3,4,5,6 have corrresponding probabilities of 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, and 0.6. Can he actually do what he has claimed? Is a probablility distrubion described by listening the outcomes along with their corresponding probabilities?
