In this time of pandemic, new indoor plant lovers emerge - flexing their potted plants and proudly calling themselves "plantitos" and "plantitas." Suppose a plant shop is selling 5 rose pincushion cacti but there are 2 here which are not yet fully established. Fascinated by its beauty, you decided to buy 3 of these cacti at random. Determine the (a) probability distribution (tabulate) and the (b) cumulative distribution of the random variable X representing the number of the cacti that are not established.
