BINOMIAL SETTING:
A fair die is rolled twenty times. Let x = the number of 6's obtained. Possible values for x are in theset {0,1,2,...,18,19,20} and m_{x}
= Np = 20(1/6) = 3.3333 GEOMETRIC SETTING:
A fair die is rolled until a 6appears. Let x = the number of rolls required to get a 6. There area countless number of values for x, which is a member of the set ofpositive integers. In this situation, m_{x}
= 1/p = 1/(1/6) = 6. (See explanation in Section 8.2Summary.)
