The Sarasota Police department collected data on the number of car accidents ( X ) that occur each day on a certain stretch of route 41. From this data, they derived the probability distribution shown in the table below.
What is the expected mean (average) number of accidents that occur each day
To find the mean:
SUM [x * P(x)]
Multiply each x by its respective probability P(x). Add together for a total. This will be your mean.
To find variance:
SUM [x^2 * P(x)] - mean^2
Square each x. Multiply each squared x by its respective probability P(x). Add together for a total. Square the mean. Subtract the squared mean from the total. This will be your variance.
To find standard deviation:
Take the square root of the variance.
Hopefully, this information will help you with problems of this type.
answer is 0.33
