g) interpret the results in context of the real life situation. what values of the random variable would you consider unusual? explain your reasoning.
on average ____ out of 6 women would consider thesmelves baseball fans,with a standard deviation of ____ women. The values x = 6 and x = _____ would be unusual because their probabilities are (less/more/equal to) 0.05
