Unformatted text preview: Determine whether or not the distribution is a probability distribution and select the reason why or why not. 0.46 0.36 0.18 If a distribution is a probability distribution, the following two conditions must both be met: 1- The sum of all of the probabilities must equal 1.
2- The probability of any value must be between 0 and 1, inclusively. First, we will check if the sum of the probabilities is equal to 1.
0.46 + 0.36 + 0.18 =1 Next we will look at the probabilities in the table and note that all of the values fall inclusively between 0 and 1. Since both conditions are met, we can say that the distribution is a probability distribution. ...
