A marketing survey compiled data on the number of personal computers in households. If X= the number of computers in a randomly-selected household, and we omit the rare cases of more than 5 computers, then Xhas the following distribution: What is the probability that a randomly chosen household has at least two personal computers? (a) 0.19 (b) 0.20 (c) 0.29 (d) 0.39 (e) 0.61 2. A random variable Xhas a probability distribution as follows: Where k is a positive constant. The probability P(X< 2.0) is equal to 3. A business evaluates a proposed venture as follows. It stands to make a profit of $10,000 with probability 3/20, to make a profit of $5000 with probability 9/20, to break even with probability 5/20, and to lose $5000 with probability 3/20. The expected profit in dollars is 4.Roll one 8-sided die 10 times.
