Discrete Distribution Review

The following table shows the number of people in families and the probability. What is the probability of a family of 6? P(family of 4 or less) What is the expected value of the family size? What is the standard deviation? Sketch a histogram. Number23456 P(number).2.34.32.08

Math majors make up 5% of the undergraduates at OSU. a)What is the probability of having 4 math majors in a group of 15 undergrads. b)What is the probability of 7 or more math majors in a group of 25 undergrads? c)What is the expected value and standard deviation? d)What is the histogram ?

The 2010 census is underway and a census worker has a 77% chance of a household talking to them. a)In a neighborhood of 10 homes what is the probability of more than 3 not talking to them? b)What is the probability of talking to 2 homes before they find a home that will talk to them? c)What is the probability of talking to more than 3 homes before they find a home that will talk to them?

In the US Civil War only 3 shots in 20 hit a target of 18 square feet from 300 yards. a)What is the probability of more than 5 shots hitting an 18 sq ft target from 300 yards? b)What is the probability of fewer than 5 shots hitting a 36 sq ft target from 300 yards? c)Sketch the histogram of this distribution. d)Calculate the mean and standard deviation of the distribution.
