REVIEW OF DISCRETE DISTRIBUTIONS EXERCISE 1: For each, state the type of distribution, THEN create the probability distribution and determine the expected value. a) A card is selected from a deck. The number or letter on the card is recorded, the card is returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled. This process is repeated 10 times and X represents the number of aces selected. b) A single card is selected from a deck. X represents the number on the selected card (ace = 1, jack = 11, etc.) c) Ten cards are selected from a deck without replacement. X represents the number of aces EXERCISE 2: 1. A box of 12 tins of tuna contains three which have gone bad. Suppose 7 tins are opened for inspection.
