Which of the following describes a numeric value based on the outcome of a random event?
Suppose in a particular game, you flip a coin. You get two points if the coin comes up heads, and you lose one point if the coin comes up tails. The coin comes up heads with probability 1/3 and tails with probability 2/3. If X is a random variable corresponding to the number of points you get on a flip of the coin, what is the expected value of X ?
Suppose in a particular game, you flip a coin. You get two points if the coin comes up heads, and you lose one point if the coin comes up tails. The coin comes up heads with probability 1/3 and tails with probability 2/3. If X is a random variable corresponding to the number of points you get on a flip of the coin, what is the variance of X ?
Suppose in a particular game, you flip a coin. You get two points if the coin comes up heads, and you lose one point if the coin comes up tails. The coin comes up heads with probability 1/3 and tails with probability 2/3. You flip the coin twice, independently. If X is the number of points you score on the first flip, and Y is the number of points you score on the second flip, what are the expected value and the variance of the total number of points you score for the two flips?
