Reminders… Bernoulli Distribution  X = 0, 1; P(X = 1) = p. Binomial Distribution X = the number of ‘successes’ in n  independent bernoulli trials each with  probability of success, p.

Differing Variability Q: For which value(s) of  p  is the variance  of a Bernoulli random variable  maximized? Minimized?

Example A beloved family of 10 rats is  mysteriously ill.  We find a webpage that  advertises a 90% effective rat medicine.   We buy 10 doses and administer  immediately! How many rats do we expect to be  cured?  What is the variance?

Continued The medicine is administered to all 10  rats.  Tomorrow 9 of them are dead.  Do  you think the scientists are correct  about the 90% effectiveness?
