1) The discrete random variable X has probebility function

P(X=x) = {k(x^2 - )
0

x = 4,5,6 otherwise

Where k is a positive constant

A) show that k= 1/50

B) Find the probebility distrubution of X

Work out P(X=4), (X=5) and (X=6) in terms of k
What is the sum of all possible probabilities?

sub the x's into the function, add all of them together, the sum of all probabilities must equal 1. now 50k=1 do a bit of rearranging to get the answer. For part b, put it into table format
