Question

Using a Formula to Describe a Sampling Distribution requires the construction of a table that describes the sampling distribution of the proportions of girls from two births. Consider the formula shown here, and evaluate that formula using sample proportions x of 0, 0.5, and 1. Based on the results, does the formula describe the sampling distribution? Why or why not?
