STA Class 05:59:47 4.3 Expected Values of Discrete Random Variables o Mean (expected value): ® = multiplied by μ = E(x) = x ® p(x) o Variance: ² = (x-μ)² p(x) σ ² = [ x² p(x)] - μ² σ o Ex. Sickle Cell Problem The expected number of children in 3 to get sickle cell anemia is: Fig 4.3-1 The variance is Fig 4.3 -2 #1 Handout, or 4.33 page 202 o Fig HO#1 – 1 o A. find the mean of x and the mean of y. compare. o B. find the standard deviation of x and the standard deviation of y. compare. o Answers HO#1-2 a o HO#1-3 b #2 from Ch 4 o Fig HO#2 -1 o Given that this is a valid probability distribution A. find the probability that x = 4 Find μ and σ
