Suppose that the New England Colonials baseball team is equally likely to win any particular game as not to win it. Suppose also that we choose a random sample of Colonials games.

1. Estimate the number of games in the sample that the Colonials win by giving the mean of the relevant distribution (that is, the expectation of the relevant random variable). Do not round your response.
2. Quantify the uncertainty of your estimate by giving the standard deviation of the distribution. Round your response to at least three decimal places.

X = the number of games that the BC win
then X has binomial distribution BIN(n = 20, p = 1/2)

and then E(X) = np = 20/2 = 10
Var(X) = np(1-p) = 20/4 = 5
Stdev (X) = sqrt(5)

Please let me know if you nea case for torture by michale levined any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Why are you using 20 if the number games are 30?
