1) Sam is representative who sells large appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, and so forth. Let x = number of appliances Sam sells on a given day. Let f = frequency (number of days) with which he sells x appliances. For a random sample of 240 days, Sam had the following sales record.

X 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

F 9 72 63 41 28 14 8 5

Assume the sales record is representative of the population of all sales days.

a) Use the relative frequency to find the p(x) for x = 0 to 7

Solution: We have the following table:
