What is the probability an applicant's GPA will be below 3.0? What is the probability an applicant's GPA will be 2.5 or above? Question 21 17.35 ptsSkip to question text. An instructor allows students to take an exam as many times as needed until the student obtains a passing grade. The following is a record of the number of students in a class of 20 who took the test and the number of tests taken in order to obtain a passing grade. Students Number of Tests 9 1 6 2 3 3 2 4 Use the relative frequency approach to construct a probability distribution and show that it satisfies the required condition. Find the expected value of the number of tests taken. Compute the variance. Compute the standard deviation. Question 22 17.35 ptsSkip to question text. A video rental store has two video cameras available for customers to rent. Historically, demand for cameras has followed this distribution. The revenue per rental is \$40. If a customer wants a camera and none is available, the store gives a \$15 coupon for tape rental. Demand Relative Frequency Revenue Cost 0 .20 0 0 1 .10 40 0 2 .05 80 0 3 .35 80 15 4 .30 80 30 What is the expected demand? What is the expected revenue? What is the expected cost?
