My teacher is a bit crazy. And I'm having a lot of trouble with something he assigned us.
Okay, basically, we have to make a chart of all the discrete distributions, their canonical problems, their p.m.f.'s, means (E(X)), and variances, which the formulas and answers for all of those are in our book.
However, he also wants us to provide a verification technique on how to prove these formulas. I've looked in the book and there was nothing, and we've only gone over a few in class. This was assigned on the last class period and is due before the next class, so I'm really stuck and don't know where to go.
I work tonight and have class pretty much all day tomorrow, so I can't seek help elsewhere. Does anyone know of a good website or something where I can find this information? The distributions I have to "prove" are: Bernoulli, Binomial, Geometric, Hypergeometric, Negative Binomial, Poisson, and Uniform.
Thanks in advance!
