Statistical distribution question!!Watch this thread
a fair 5-sided spinner has sectors numbered from 1-5.
spinner is spun and the number showing (X) is recorded.
a) state distribution of X
the spinner is spun 4 times and the number of spins taken to get an off number (Y) is recorded.
b) write down, in table form, the probability distribution of Y
c) find P(Y>2)
Can you clarify what "number of spins taken to get an off number (Y)" means? I don't understand it.
For part b), can you tell us the probability of getting an odd number on the first spin?
p(X=x) = ..... for x=1, ......etc ?
