Jeremy Doncouse Week 4 Problems 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 33, 38, and 41 5 a. List the experimental outcomes with performing the blood analysis. Test 1 Test 2 1 1 1 2 1 3 2 1 2 2 2 3 b. If the random variable of interetst is the total number of steps required to do the complete analysis (both procedures), show what value the random variable will assume for each of the experimental outcomes. Outcome Value of X x = number of steps 1,1 2 1,2 3 1,3 4 2,1 3 2,2 4 2,3 5 Business Perspective. When performing experiments or any multi-step process it is important to know how many steps could be involved because that time needs to be accounted for and determined in figuring the costs associated with the steps, how much to charge clients, how efficient workers can be, and how how to make improvements. 9 Age # of Children 6 38,369 7 87,436 8 160,840 9 239,719 10 286,719 11 306,533 12 310,787 13 302,604 14 289,168 2,022,175 a. Use the data to develop a probability distribution for x. Specify the values for the random variable and the corresponding values for the probability function f(x). x f(x) 1 0.02 2 0.04

My table shows that each of the probabilities for the random variable x satisfy equation (5.1) because f(x) is greater than or equal to 0 for all the values of x. Plus, because the sum of the probabilities is 1, equation (5.2) is satisfied.
