Statistics Probability

A box contains 15 green and 10 yellow balls. If 10 balls are randomly drawn, one-by-one, with replacement, then the variance of the number of green balls drawn is:

  1. 12/5
  2. 6
  3. 4
  4. 6/25

Solution

p = 15/25

q = 10/25

n = 10

σ2 = npq

= 12/5

The correct option is A.
