The results obtained in part I of the paper are specialized to the case of discrete fuzzy random variables. A more intuitive interpretation is given of the notion of fuzzy random variables. Algorithms are derived for determining expectations, fuzzy probabilities, fuzzy conditional expectations and fuzzy conditional probabilities related to discrete fuzzy random variables. These algorithms are applied to illustrative examples. A sample application to a medical diagnosis problem is briefly discussed.
