The Mean Value of a discrete probability distribution (denoted by mu is a weighted average of the x-values AND represents the average values of all possible outcomes.

True | |

False |

Explain why in a binomial probability distribution, p + q =1. Make one sentence work.

Answer #1

If a random variable can take only a finite number of distinct values, then it must be discrete. Thus, Discrete Random Variables have either a finite or countable number of values. This is a True statement.

Bushels of wheat per acre is a numerical continuous variable. This is a True statement.

The Mean Value of a discrete probability distribution is given as,

Thus, Mean Value of a discrete probability distribution is weighted average of the values that X can take, with weights provided by the probability distribution. This is a True statement.

In a binomial probability distribution, there are only two possible outcomes - success with probability p and failure with probability q. The sum of probabilities of all outcomes is 1. Thus, p + q = 1

A

19. In a binomial distribution the random variable X is
discrete.
20. The standard deviation and mean are the same for the
standard normal distribution.
21. In a statistical study, the random variable X = 1, if the
house is colonial and X = 0 if the house is not colonial, then it
can be stated that the random variable is continuous. 22. For a
continuous distribution, P(X ≤ 10) is the same as P(X<10).
23. For...

2. In the normal distribution, the
mean, median, mode, and variance are all at the same position on

True or False:
10. The probability of an event is a value which must be greater
than 0 and less than 1.
11. If events A and B are mutually exclusive, then P(A|B) is always
equal to zero.
12. Mutually exclusive events cannot be independent.
13. A classical probability measure is a probability assessment
that is based on relative frequency.
14. The probability of an event is the product of the probabilities
of the sample space outcomes that correspond to...
