Exercise 3.2 1. (a), 0.6211; (b), Expected value = 49.2929, standard deviation = 4.9995; (c), [43, 55]; 3. (a), 0.4163; (b), assume binomial distribution; (c), E(X) = 6, σ = 2 . 0494; (d), By empirical rule, P( within 1 standard deviation) = 0.68. Using binomial distribution, P( within 1 standard deviation) = 0.7796. Empirical rule is not so accurate when dealing with a
