Wage negotiations between your firm and the union representing your workers are about to collapse. There is considerable disagreement about the mean wage level of workers in Plant A and in Plant B. Wages wee set by the old labor agreement reached three years ago and are based strictly on seniority. Although wages are closely con

Determine probability, mean, and variance

An urn contains four red balls and four white balls. An experiment consists of selecting at random a sample of four balls and recording the number of red balls in the sample. Set up the probability distribution and compute its mean and variance.
