    100 students in a statistics class were asked if they believed that all tests on the Monday following the football game win over their rival should be postponed automatically. The results were:

    Strongly agree: 40
    Agree: 30
    Neutral: 20
    Disagree: 10
    Strongly disagree: 0

    Numeric scale for each category is as follows:

    Strongly agree = 5
    Agree = 4
    Neutral = 3
    Disagree = 2
    Strongly disagree = 1

    a. Transform this into a numeric score, using the following random variable scale, and find a probability distribution for the results.

    b. Let X = the numeric score. Compute the expected value of X.

    c. Compute the variance and standard deviation for the random variable X.
