Not valid because probabilities cannot be negative. d. Not a valid distribution. 4.18 a. Yes. b. P(x=16) = 0.06 c. P(x< 10) = 0.28 d. P(5< x< 15) = 0.82 4.52 a. P(x=2) = 0.167 0.046 = 0.121 (using table) b. P(x< 5) = 0.034 c. P(x>1) = 0.081 4.56 a. Check the 5 characteristics. Yes it is binomial b. P = 0.2 c. = np = 40 4.86 a. P(x< 3) = 0.01 (using table) b.
