The random X is defined in (g). Compute the mean of X. Report this and all subsequent anwers with 4 decimal places.

x 1 2 3 4 P(x) 0.0531 0.2300 0.3738 0.2700 0.0731

I keep getting: E(x) =

(0.2300)+(0.7476)+(0.8100)+(0.2924) = 2.08

Hey michellederz.

Checking with R, I get

> 1*0.23 + 2*0.3738 + 3*0.27 + 4*0.0731

[1] 2.08
