?(a) Construct a discrete probability distribution for the random variable x.

 x? (games played) ?P(x) 4 nothing 5 nothing 6 nothing 7 nothing

?(Round to four decimal places as? needed.)

?(b) Graph the discrete probability distribution. Choose the correct graph below.

A.

456700.5xP(x)

Edit Coordinates(0,0)

A histogram with a horizontal x-axis labeled from 3 to 8 in intervals of 1 and a vertical axis labeled "P(x)" from 0 to 0.5 in intervals of 0.1 has four vertical lines positioned on the horizontal axis tick marks. The approximate heights of the vertical lines are as follows, with the horizontal coordinate listed first and the line height listed second: 4, 0.35; 5, 0.22; 6, 0.4; 7, 0.23.

B.

456700.5xP(x)

Edit Coordinates(0,0)

A histogram with a horizontal x-axis labeled from 3 to 8 in intervals of 1 and a vertical axis labeled "P(x)" from 0 to 0.5 in intervals of 0.1 has four vertical lines positioned on the horizontal axis tick marks. The approximate heights of the vertical lines are as follows, with the horizontal coordinate listed first and the line height listed second: 4, 0.25; 5, 0.22; 6, 0.3; 7, 0.23.

C.

456700.5xP(x)

Edit Coordinates(0,0)

A histogram with a horizontal x-axis labeled from 3 to 8 in intervals of 1 and a vertical axis labeled "P(x)" from 0 to 0.5 in intervals of 0.1 has four vertical lines positioned on the horizontal axis tick marks. The approximate heights of the vertical line are as follows, with the horizontal coordinate listed first and the line height listed second: 4, 0.35; 5, 0.32; 6, 0.4; 7, 0.33.

D.

456700.5xP(x)

Edit Coordinates(0,0)

A histogram with a horizontal x-axis labeled from 3 to 8 in intervals of 1 and a vertical axis labeled "P(x)" from 0 to 0.5 in intervals of 0.1 has four vertical lines positioned on the horizontal axis tick marks. The approximate heights of the vertical lines are as follows, with the horizontal coordinate listed first and the line height listed second: 4, 0.15; 5, 0.12; 6, 0.2; 7, 0.13.

?(c) Compute and interpret the mean of the random variable x.

mu Subscript x?xequals=nothing

games

?(Round to four decimal places as? needed.)

Interpret the mean of the random variable x.

A.

The? series, if played many? times, would be expected to last about

5.55.5

?games, on average.

B.

The? series, if played one? time, would be expected to last about

5.55.5

games.

C.

The? series, if played many? times, would be expected to last about

4.54.5

?games, on average.

?(d) Compute the standard deviation of the random variable x.

sigma Subscript x?xequals=nothing

(a)

Following table shows the relative frequency distribution:

 X Frequency, f P(X=x)=f/69 4 17 0.2464 5 15 0.2174 6 21 0.3043 7 16 0.2319 Total 69 1

(b)

Following table shows the histogram:

(c)

Following table shows the calculations for mean:

 X Frequency, f P(X=x)=f/69 xP(X=x) 4 17 0.2464 0.9856 5 15 0.2174 1.087 6 21 0.3043 1.8258 7 16 0.2319 1.6233 Total 69 1 5.5217

So,

A.

The? series, if played many times, would be expected to last about 5.5 games, on average.

(d)

Following table shows the calculations:

 X Frequency, f P(X=x)=f/69 xP(X=x) x^2P(X=x) 4 17 0.2464 0.9856 3.9424 5 15 0.2174 1.087 5.435 6 21 0.3043 1.8258 10.9548 7 16 0.2319 1.6233 11.3631 Total 69 1 5.5217 31.6953
