## Frequency Distributions In Exercises 5 and 6, complete the table to form the frequency distribution of the random variable x. Then construct a bar graph to represent the result.Kittens A cat has a litter of four kittens. Let x represent the number of male kittens. x 0 1 2 3 4 n(x)

To determine

To calculate: The frequency distribution of the random variable x which is defined as the number of male kittens in a litter of four kittens by completing the table and represent the result by a bar graph.

### Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

A cat has a litter of four kittens. The random variable x is defined as the number of male kittens.

Formula used:

The table that represents the number of occurrence of a specific value of x which is called the frequency of x is called the frequency distribution.

Calculation:

Consider that a cat has a litter of four kittens.

Define the random variable x as the number of male kittens.

For a kitten with litter of four kittens, there will be 16 possible combinations of males and females. So, the sample space is:

S={MMMM,FMMM,MFMM,MMFM,MMMF,FFMM,FMFM,FMMF,MFFM,MFMF,MMFF,MFFF,FMFF,FFMF,FFFM,FFFF}

As the random variable x is defined as the number of male kittens in the litter, the possible values of number of occurrence of male kittens in all the outcomes are 0,1,2,3,4. To find the frequencies, count the number of occurrence of male kittens in all the outcomes in the sample space.

For x=0, that is no male kitten in the litter, the number of outcomes without males is one.

For x=1, the number of outcomes with one male kitten is four.

For x=2, the number of outcomes with two male kittens is six.

For x=3, the number of outcomes with three male kittens is four
