A company selling vegetable seeds in packets of 40 estimates that the mean number of seeds that will actually grow is 36.0 with a standard deviation of 1.8 seeds. If a customer buys 9 different seed packets, what are the expected value and standard deviation of the number of **bad seeds**? Assume that packets are independent of each other.

Mr F says: I don't agree with any of the options given below. If the question was asking for the expected value and standard deviation of the number of **good seeds,** then one of the options below is correct.

a. μ = 108.00, σ = 16.2

b. μ = 324, σ = 5.40

c. μ = 108.00, σ = 5.40

d. μ = 324, σ = 145.8

e. μ = 324, σ = 16.2

Thank you
