1. An experiment succeeds twice as often as it fails. Find the chance that in the next six trials there will be at least four successes. 2. Find E(x), E(X2) and 2 for the probability function P(x) defined by the following table. (k is constant) xi 1 2 3 ……….. N P(xi) k 2k 3k …………… Nk 3. An insurance company has discovered that only about 0.1% of the population is involved in a certain type of accident each year.
