Discrete Random Variables
True / False Questions 1. The binomial experiment consists of n independent, identical trials, each of which results in
either success or failure and is such that the probability of success on any trial is the same.
True False 1349 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 2. A Poisson random variable is a continuous variable that can be used to describe the number
of occurrences of an event over a specified interval of time or space.
True False 3. A discrete random variable may assume a countable number of outcome values.
True False 4. The variable "home ownership" can take on one of two values, 1 if the person living in a
home owns the home and zero if the person living in a home does not own the home is an
example of a discrete random variable.
True False 5. If the number of surface nonconformities on a specific size of a metal piece is the discrete
random variable in question, then the appropriate probability distribution that can describe the
probability of a specific size metal sheet containing 3 nonconformities is most likely given by
the binomial distribution.
True False 6. The mean of the binomial distribution is np(1p).
True False 1350 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 7. In a binomial...
