The questions below can presumably be answered in terms of ProbabilityDistribution, so here goes...

How do I create a distribution for the discrete random variable whose support is {-2.1, 3.45, 7} having corresponding probabilities {0.5, 0.3, 0.2}?  

What if the support is {-2.1, 3.45, pi}?

If ProbabilityDistribution cannot support these, then what?

Thanks.

Bruce
