Frequency Distribution

 x p(x) x*p x^2*p 0 19/320 0 0 1 39/320 39/320 39/320 2 52/320 104/320 208/320 3 57/320 171/320 513/320 4 68/320 272/320 1088/320 5 41/320 205/320 1025/320 6 27/320 162/320 972/320 7 17/320 119/320 833/320 ∑xp=1072/320=3.35 ∑x^2*p=4678/320=14.61

Mean = 3.35

Variance = 14.61 - (3.35)^2 = 14.61 - 11.22 = 3.39

S.D = square root of  3.39 = 1.84
