Unformatted text preview: 1 The unfair die An unfair 6—sided die is two times as likely to roll a six as to roll a one. All other outcomes
are equally likely. Compute the expected outcome, and the standard deviation.
Now compute the expected sum, and standard deviation for three such die. Now compute the expected value and standard deviation for 3 times the outcome on one
such die. r676) 1W3 : 3.:)ve¢f ; 91cm: WW) : WOC) W303) two‘s) 2 The below table gives the percentage of the US. population in four regions of the United
