You have two decks of 26 cards. Each card in each of the two decks has a different letter of the alphabet on it. You pick at random one card from each of the two decks. A vowel is worth 3 points and a consonant is worth 0 points. Let X = the sum of the values of the two cards picked. Find E(X), V(X), and the standard deviation of X.
