(a) Calculate the weighted mean of the probability distribution; (b) Calculate the variance of the probability distribution; (c) Calculate the standard deviation of the probability distribution. (d) Calculate the coefficient of variation of the probability distribution. (e) Would another investment having a coefficient of variation of .25 appear to offer a higher return per unit of risk?
