Problem 97E

Sketch the probability mass function of a binomial distribution with n = 10 and p = 0.01 and comment on the shape of the distribution.

(a) What value of X is most likely?

(b) What value of X is least likely?

Solution

Step 1 of 1

We have to stretch the probability mass function with n=10 and p=0.01

a) The most likely value of x is

=10(0.01)

=0.1

Hence the most likely value of x is 0.1

b) The least likely value of x is 10
