The  weighted  average  of the  possible  values  that  a  random  variable  X can  assume,   where  the  weights  are the  probabilities  of occurrence  of those  values,  is referred  to as   the: a. variance b. standard  deviation c. expected  value d. covariance ANSWER: c 2. The number  of accidents that occur annually on a busy stretch of highway  is an example   of: 3. A function  or rule that assigns a numerical value to each simple event  of an experiment   is called: 94

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
