    First, we calculate E(Y) and E(X). Expectation equals the sum of each value of the outcome times the chance of that outcome occurring.

    E(Y) = 0.22 X 0 + 0.78 X 1 = 0.78

    E(X) = 0.3 X 0 + 0.7 X 1 = 0.7.

    Next, variance = the sum of probability X (the state of x - the mean of x)^2

    Var(Y) = ...
