The distribution of x . b. Find the probability of (i) at least one head, (ii) An even number of heads, (iii) at least 2 heads. c. Find E x PROBLEM J0B. In problem J0A find the standard deviation of the number of heads PROBLEM J10. Find P8 x 12 for the following distributions a. Continuous Uniform with c 3, d 27 (Make a diagram!). b. Continuous Uniform with c 3, d 10 (Make a diagram!). Find these areas in two ways. First, make an appropriate diagram and find the area of the box.
