Construct a binomial distribution using n=6 and p=0.36

x P(x)








b) Choose the correct histogram (no idea how i can copy that so whatever)

c) whatever

d) find the mean of the binomial distribution

e)find the variance of the binomial distribution

f) find the standard deviation of the binomial distribution.

g) interpret the results in context of the real life situation. what values of the random variable would you consider unusual? explain your reasoning.

on average ____ out of 6 women would consider thesmelves baseball fans,with a standard deviation of ____ women. The values x = 6 and x = _____ would be unusual because their probabilities are (less/more/equal to) 0.05

5) Given that x has a poisson distribution with u=3, what is the propapbility that x =1?

P(1) =

6) Given that x has a poisson distribution with u=0.4, what is the propapbility that x =3?

P(3) =

7) Find the indicated probabilities using the geometric distribution or poisson distribution. Then determine if the events are unusual.
