Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:[tex]\begin{array}{ccccc}\text{January}&\text{February}&\text{March}&\text{April}&\text{May}\\\dfrac{3}{20}&\dfrac{5}{20}&\dfrac{2}{20}&\dfrac{8}{20}&\dfrac{2}{20}\end{array}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:During 5 months Laura wrote3+5+2+8+2=20 songs.1.

The probability that the song was written in March is [tex]\frac{2}{20}.[/tex]4. The probability that the song was written in April is [tex]\frac{8}{20}.[/tex]5. 1. The probability that the song was written in May is [tex]\frac{2}{20}.[/tex]The probabolity distribution table:[tex]\begin{array}{ccccc}\text{January}&\text{February}&\text{March}&\text{April}&\text{May}\\\dfrac{3}{20}&\dfrac{5}{20}&\dfrac{2}{20}&\dfrac{8}{20}&\dfrac{2}{20}\end{array}[/tex]
