STA2023 Class Test 2, Tuesday 12 October 1. Suppose that 2% of the population of a rural county in Wyoming believe that OJ Simpson trial resulted in justice being served. Also, suppose I have randomly and independently sampled 200 of these residents. Let X be the number of people in the sample who believe that OJ Simpson trial resulted in justice being served. (i) State the distribution of X and give your reason. (ii) Find the mean value and standard deviation of X. 2. Suppose four balls are randomly selected without replacement from a bag that contains a total of eight balls, five red and three white. Let X be the number of white balls in the four selected balls.
