# Finding Frequency and Probability Distributions In Exercises 5 and 6, (a) find the frequency distribution for the random variable and (b) find the probability distribution for the random variable. See Examples 2 and 3.Exam Three students answer a true-false question on an examination. A random variable assigns the number 0, 1, 2, or 3 to each possible outcome, depending on the number of answers of true among the three students.

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The frequency distribution for the random variable when three students answer a true-false question on an examination.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided information that is three students answer a true-false question on an examination. A random variable assigns the number 0, 1, 2, or 3 to each possible outcome, depending on the number of answers of true.

Calculation:

Consider the provided information that is three students answer a true-false question on an examination. A random variable assigns the number 0, 1, 2, or 3 to each possible outcome, depending on the number of answers of true.

Let, x be the random variable that represents the number of true answers in each possible outcome and f(x) represent the frequency of the random variable

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The probability distribution for the random variable when three students answer a true-false question on an examination.
