Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Grades can be converted into numbers (as in calculating a GPA) where an A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, and F = 0. For a fictional class, the grade distribution was: X(Grade) 4 3 2 1 0 P(X) 0.20 0.25 0.30 0.10 0.15 a) Verify that this is a legitimate probability distribution. b) Find the mean grade for this class. c) Find the standard deviation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1finding the mean/sd. i found those out, but idk how to corrleate them with the grades. i know mean is .2, so would that mean the average grade is 4 because its' probability is .2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes... Mean = \(\sum xP(x)\) so, it will be mean = 0.2*4 + 0.25*3 + ......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, got that. i compared that with a friend, and she got the same answer. it was just the mean.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hartnn, if you don't mind could you explain how to find the standar deviation, i'm a bit confused on how to go about it.
