Consider 3 trials each having the same probability of success
Consider 3 trials, each having the same probability of success. Let X denote the total number of successes in these trials. If E[X] = 1.8, what is
(a) The largest possible value of P{X = 3}?
(b) The smallest possible value of P{X = 3}?
In both cases, construct a probability scenario that results in P{X = 3} having the stated value.
For part (b), you might start by letting U be a uniform random variable on (0, 1) and then defining the trials in terms of the value of U.
