Discrete Probability Distribution 1. A bank recorded the number of ATM transactions made by its customers in one day. The number x of daily ATM transactions per customer can be approximated by the following probability distribution. x P(x) 0 .22 1 .30 2 .20 3 .12 4 .09 5 .07 (i) (3 points) Calculate the expected number of ATM transactions per customer μ. (ii) (5 points) Calculate the variance and the standard deviation of the number of ATM transactions per customer. 2. A volunteer ambulance service handles zero to three service calls on any given day. The probability distribution for the number of service calls is as follows: X: the number of service calls Probability 0 .15 1 .25 2 .40 3 .20 (i) What is the mean number of service calls per day (ii) What is the variance of the number of service calls? (iii) What is the standard deviation of the number of service calls? (iv) Compute the coefficient of variation of the number of service calls.

    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.
