Suppose that a batch of 100 items contains 6 that are defective and 94 that are not defective. If X is the number of defective items in a randomly drawn sample of 10 items from the batch, find (a) P{X = 0} and (b) P{X > 2}. Let X be a binomial random variable with parameters n and p. Show that Show that X is a Poisson random variable with parameter λ, then E[Xn] = λE[(X + 1)n−1] Now use this result to compute E[X3]. Balls numbered 1 through N are in an urn.
