The average of the outcomes is likely to be around __________, give or take __________ or so. μ = 6 21 6 6 5 4 3 2 1 = + + + + + = 3.5. σ = ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 6 5 . 3 6 5 . 3 5 5 . 3 4 5 . 3 3 5 . 3 2 5 . 3 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 - + - + - + - + - + - = 6 5 . 17 6 25 . 6 25 . 2 25 . 0 25 . 0 25 . 2 25 . 6 = + + + + + 1.708.
