Mean (µ) of a probability distribution is ∑[x*p(x)] = 0.8
Variance (s^2) = ∑(x^2 * p[x]) - µ^2
s^2 = 1.12 - 0.8^2
s^2 = 1.12 - 0.64
s^2 = 0.48

SD = sqrt(s^2)
SD = sqrt(0.48)
SD = 0.69

Hi. Thanks for your question.

Question 1 is different from before, because it has a different probability.

Questions 2 - 4 are the same. It looks like you made a slight error entering the table (24 instead of 34), but otherwise the data and questions are the same.

Do you just need question 1 answered?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
The question is asking 24 this time, not 34, so would it be the same answers?
Expert:  SusanAthena replied 5 years ago.
Hi. The columns and rows have to add up, so I assumed that "34" was correct. 27 + 34 = 61 (column total); 6 + 34 = 40 (row total)

Please check the data again, thanks!
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
These are a different set of questions, the first set that i ask you was 34, now there are asking me 24 this time, i am kind of lost
Expert:  SusanAthena replied 5 years ago.
Hi. I see that they're different questions. Please check the data again. The row and columns MUST total up. The table as you've given it can't be correct. It says, for example, that there are 6 sophomores with credit cards and 24 without. That would make 30 total. But the total given is 40. The table just doesn't make sense.

Kind regards,
Susan
