 (i) [Its values are the quantities 0 to 5.]
 "at least one" means anything but zero: probability is 10.12=0.88
 0.18 + 0.07 = 0.25
 0.12(0.12)=0.0144

 intersection of Pitt row and Passed column has 152 individuals [Notice that I asked "How many..." not "What is the probability..."]
 152+29+157=338 [Again, I asked for a count, not a probability.]
 309/372=0.83
 152/181=0.84

 (iv) [Notice that the variable's values extend roughly from 0 to 50. If the mean is about 25, all values are within 2 or 3 times 9.4 of the mean. Also, 2.9 is too small and 29 is too large.]
