E(R)=24/11 

Var(R)=95/121

these are the mean and variance of a four sided spinner that is represented by the discrete random variable R

 

find the new mean and Variance when the numbers in the spinner are trebled and then subtracted from 1

\(E[aX + b] = aE[X] + b\\ V[a X + b] = a^2V[X]\)

 

\(\tilde{R} = 1-3R\\ E[\tilde{R}] = E[1-3R] = \\ 1 - 3E[R] =\\ 1-3\left(\dfrac{24}{11}\right)=\\ 1-\dfrac{72}{11} = -\dfrac{61}{11}\)

 

\(V[\tilde{R}] = V[1-3R] = \\ (3)^2 V[R] = 9\left(\dfrac{95}{121}\right) = \dfrac{855}{11} \)
