Let X : be the number of bad oranges x 0 1 2 The Mean is given by : E( )" =" 2_( =1)^ = 0 60/95+1 32/95+2 3/95 = 38/95 = 2/5 = 0.4 Hence the mean is 0.4 The variance of x is given by : Var ( )= ( ^2 ) [ ( )]^2 So, finding ( ^2 ) E( ^ )= 2_( = 1)^ _ ^2 = 0^2 60/95+1^2 32/95+2^2 3/95 = 0 + 32/95 + 4 3/95 = 44/95 Now, Var ( )= ( ^ ) [ ( )]^ = 44/95 (2/5)^2 = 44/95 4/25 = 44/(19 5) 4/(5 5) = (44(5) 4 19)/(19 5 5) = (220 76)/475 = /
