Quality Quiz:

Polly Yurathane, our intrepid quality technician, is amazed to see her formerly binomial distribution suddenly become a trinomial distribution, and has tried to come up with an explanation for her boss.

Polly comes to the conclusion that taking many samples of the size two (n=2) and averaging these samples can cause four things:

The sample could contain two values from the left side of that population (L/L)

The first value of the sample of two could come from the left side, and the second from the right (L/R)

The first value of the sample could come from the right side and the second from the left (R/L).

Both values could be from the right side (R/R).

Is this analysis correct?

a) Yes.

b) No.
