Pretend you are rolling a pair of fair dice (meaning each face turning up is equally likely); however, these are not standard dice. One of the dice has 10 faces (number 1 through 10), and the other has only 4 faces (numbered 1 through 4). What is the probability of the two dice totaling 8 on a given roll? (1 point) Now, in the box below, paste a histogram (from either Excel or Minitab) that displays the probability of rolling any value between 2 and 14. Comment briefly on the shape of this distribution: (1 point) Lab 2: Random Number Distributions Section 1: Examples of Discrete Random Variables 1.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
