 The table to the right lists probabilities for the corresponding numbers of girls in three births. What is the random​ variable, what are its possible​ values, and are its values​ numerical? Number of girls x ​P(x) 0 0.125 1 0.375 2 0.375 3 0.125

Part 1

Choose the correct answer below.

A

The random variable is​ x, which is the number of girls in three births. The possible values of x are​ 0, 1,​ 2, and 3. The values of the random value x are numerical.

B.

The random variable is​ x, which is the number of girls in three births. The possible values of x are​ 0, 1,​ 2, and 3. The values of the random value x are not numerical.

C.

The random variable is​ P(x), which is the probability of a number of girls in three births. The possible values of​ P(x) are 0.125 and 0.375. The values of the random value​ P(x) are numerical.

D

The random variable is​ P(x), which is the probability of a number of girls in three births. The possible values of​ P(x) are 0.125 and 0.375. The values of the random value​ P(x) are not numerical.
