    Probability Theory : Random Variables

    The campus recruiter for an international conglomerate classifies the large number of students she interviews into three categories-the lower quarter, the middle quarter, and the upper quarter. If she meets six students on a given morning, what is the probability that they will be evenly divided among the three categories? What is the marginal probability that exactly two will belong to the middle half?
