A likely or representative outcome: Midterm Score ( Z i ) Probability ( p i ) 100 p 1 95 p 2 80 p 3 70 p 4 60 p 5 3 What is an expectation? What if all equally likely? Expected score: E ( Z i ) = (100 + 95 + 80 + 70 + 60) 5 = 81 What if the probabilities are: { p 1 , p 2 , p 3 , p 4 , p 5 } = {0.1, 0.1, 0.5, 0.2, 0.1} ?
