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
