  • In a toss of baised die
  • P(getting 4)=\(\Large\frac{1}{10}P=\;\frac{1}{10}\;q=\;\frac{1}{10}\)
  • Die is tossed 2 ,X defined as no of '4' seen
  • X can take X=\((0\;1\;2)\)
  • varianceX=\(\sum\)P\(_i\)X\(_i\)\(^2\)+(\(\sum\)P\(_i\)X\(_i\))\(^2\)
=\(P(not 4 and not 4)\)
\(p(x=0\))=P(one 4)
variance X=\(\large\frac{22}{100}\)-(\(\large\frac{22}{100}\))\(^2\)
