percent will be 500 piece puzzles and twenty percent will be 1000 piece puzzles. For
each of the following, name the distribution, parameters, and if an approximate
distribution is applicable, list both the exact and approximate distributions with their
corresponding parameters. (3 pts for each part)
a. Let X be the number of 1000 piece puzzles in the next 10 puzzles made.
X~Bin(n=10, p=0.2)
b. You are awarded a free puzzle!! You only like to do 500 piece puzzles though. Let X be
whether you get the type of puzzle you like.
X~Bernouli(p=0.5)
c. It takes you an average of 6 hours to put together a 1000 piece puzzle. Let X be the
