1. P (0) =.001 P (1) =.014 P (2) =.073 P (3) =.021 P (4) =.328 P (5) =.279 P (6) =.099 2. P (4) has the highest probability at .328 3. What is the probability of getting more than 3 families to say that their children have an influence on their vacation destinations? Explain and show how you get your answer. P(x>3)= P(4)+P(5)+P(6)=.328+.279+.099=.706 4. What is the probability that no more than 3 families say that their children have an influence on their vacation destinations? Explain and show how you get your answer. P ( x ≤3 )= 1-.706=.294 5. Find the mean, variance, and standard deviation of this binomial distribution. Explain and show all steps to get your answers. n=6 p=.68 µ=np = 6(.68)=4.08 variance = npq= 4.08(.32)=1.3056 standard deviation= 1.1426 Extra Credit: You can receive 10% extra credit on this assignment if you show how to compute the binomial
