Student Learning OutcomesThe student will analyze the properties of a hypergeometric distribution.GivenSuppose that a group of statistics students is divided into two groups: business majors and non-business majors. There are 16 business majors in the group and 7 non-business majors in the group. A random sample of 9 students is taken. We are interested in the number of business majors in the group.Interpret the DataIn words, define the Random Variable X.X ~H(16,7,9)What values does X
take on?
