The possible values of X are therefore 1 and n 1. (b) The possible values of X are 1 and 5. Now X 1 if the pooled test is negative. This occurs if none of the individuals has the disease. The probability that this occurs is 1 0 1 4 0 6561. Therefore P X 1 0 6561. It follows that P X 5 0 3439. So μ X 1 0 6561 5 0 3439 2 3756. (c) The possible values of X are 1 and 7. Now X 1 if the pooled test is negative. This occurs if none of the individuals has the disease. The probability that this occurs is
