Let x = 4 represent four or more cups. a. Develop a probability distribution for x . b. Compute the expected value of x . c. Compute the variance of x . d. Suppose we are only interested in adults who drink at least one cup of coffee on an average day. For this group, let y = the number of cups of coffee consumed on an average day. Compute the expected value of y and compare it to the expected value of x .
