Use the following situation to answer questions 7 and 8 A family has three children. The probability that any one of their children will have blue eyes is 0.20. Each child’s eye color is independent of any other child’s eye color. Let X = the number of children with blue eyes. 7. X is a. independent. b. a categorical variable. c. a continuous random variable. d. a discrete random variable. e. normally distributed. 8. (3 points) Calculate the probability that exactly one child will have blue eyes. What is the first digit after the decimal point? a. 0 b. 1 c. 2 d. 3 e. 4 9. As the sample size gets larger, the distribution of sample means a. has a smaller standard deviation b. has a smaller mean c. looks more like the distribution of the data in the population d. all of the above e. only a and b above 10. The distribution of sample means will be approximately normal if
