    1. A small bag of Skittles candies has the following assortment: red (12), blue (5), orange (15), brown (0), green (16), and yellow (7). Construct the probability distribution for x. X is color; so the p(green) = 16/n, where n is the total count, and so on...

    2. Find the mean and standard deviation of the following probability distribution:

    x 1 2 3
    P(x) 0.4 0.25 0.35
