Solutions for Homework #3 9. a. Possible values of X are positive even integers, that is {2,4,6,8,…}. X is discrete. b. Possible values are {2,3,4,5,…}. X is discrete. 10. a. {0,1,2,…,10} b. {0,1,2,3,4,5,6} c. {0,1,2,3,4,5,6} d. {0,1,2} 13. a. .10+.15+.20+.25=.7 b. .10+.15+.20=.45 c. .25 +.20+ .06+ .04=.55 d. .20 +.25 +.20+ .06=.71 e. 2 6 4 2 4 X X - . .20 +.25+ .20=.65 f. 6 4 2 X X - . .10 +.15+ .20=.45 22. a.

Thus the upper bound
