First we need to understand what is variable,
A variable is a value that needed to be find out it is generally denoted by "x" in algebra. The value/es we find are definite and certain.
The random variable is a probability, we are not sure that this Probability is same as the actual case, so we use word random since the values are calculated using a function, the value is definite but being a probability it is not certain.
