    Question 1 and 2 involve the random variable x with probability distribution given below.

    x -2 4 5 6 7
    P(x) 0.15 0.05 0.3 0.1 0.4

    determine the expected value of x.

    determine the standard deviation of x.

    Below is a compilation of student distribution in our four statistics classes from the summer of 2009.

    course stat 200 stat 225 stat 230 stat 250

    percentage 45.8 12.0 32.8 9.4

    The enrollment report for the summer of 2011 is given as follows

    course stat 200 stat 225 stat 230 stat 250

    frequency 249 71 133 47

    At the 1% significant level, do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that 2011's enrollment distribution differs from the 2009 distribution?

    Show all work: include the hypotheses, the computation of the test statistic, state the critical value, and state the conclusion of the test.
