Use the following information to answer the next six exercises: A baker is deciding how many batches of muffins to make to sell in his bakery. He wants to make enough to sell every one and no fewer. Through observation, the baker has established a probability distribution.
$$\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline x & {P(x)} \\ \hline 1 & {0.15} \\ \hline 2 & {0.35} \\ \hline 3 & {0.40} \\ \hline 4 & {0.10} \\ \hline\end{array}$$

in question six. We have a probability distribution where we have a baker, and he's deciding how many batches of muffins to make to sell in his bakery. He wants to make sure to sell everyone and no fewer. Through observation, the baker has established this probability distribution. Question six. Ask us to define the random variable X. So we're gonna do this in words and it's gonna look like this. We're gonna start off, let X equal. And we just want to write in words what each of the expertise represent. So based off the stem, we can see that each XVIII represents the number of batches of muffins to make to sell in his bakery. Again, X is equal to the number of batches of muffins to make to sail in his bakery.
