Exercise 5.12 METHODS AND APPLICATIONSSuppose that the probability distribution of a random variable x can be described by the formula
P(x) = x________________________________________15
for each of the values x = 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. For example, then, P(x = 2) = p(2) =2/15.
(a) Write out the probability distribution of x. (Write all fractions in reduced form.)
x 1 2 3 4 5
P(x) ________________________________________ ________________________________________ ________________________________________ ________________________________________ ________________________________________
________________________________________
(b) Show that the probability distribution of x satisfies the properties of a discrete probability distribution.(Round other answers to the nearest whole number. Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0” wherever required.)
P(x) ≥ for each value of x.
(c) Calculate the mean of x. (Round your answer to 3 decimal places.)
µx
(d) Calculate the variance, σ2x , and the standard deviation, σx. (Round your answer σx2 in to 3 decimal places and round answer σx in to 4 decimal places.)

Exercise 5.23 METHODS AND APPLICATIONSSuppose that x is a binomial random variable with n = 5, p = 0.3, and q = 0.7.
(b) For each value of x, calculate p(x), and graph the binomial distribution. (Round final answers to 5 decimal places.)
p(0) = , p(1) = , p(2) = , p (3) = ,p(4) = , p(5) =
(c) Find P(x = 3). (Round final answer to 5 decimal places.)
P(x=3)
(d) Find P(x ≤ 3). (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 5 decimal places.)
P(x ≤ 3)
(e) Find P(x < 3). (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 5 decimal places.) P(x < 3) = P(x ≤ 2) (f) Find P(x ≥ 4). (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 5 decimal places.) P(x ≥ 4) (g) Find P(x > 2). (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 5 decimal places.)
P(x > 2)
(h) Use the probabilities you computed in part b to calculate the mean, μx, the variance, σ 2x, and the standard deviation, σx, of this binomial distribution. Show that the formulas for μx , σ 2x, and σx given in this section give the same results. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answers to µx and σ 2x in to 2 decimal places, and σx in to 6 decimal places.)

σx
(i) Calculate the interval [μx ± 2σx]. Use the probabilities of part b to find the probability that x will be in this interval. Hint: When calculating probability, round up the lower interval to next whole number and round down the upper interval to previous whole number. (Round your answers to 5 decimal places. A negative sign should be used instead of parentheses.)
The interval is [ , ].
