Hello, i found one question really difficult and I cant solve it. Please help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Six hens are observed over a period of 20 days and the number of eggs laid each day is summarised in the following table:

No. of eggs: 3 4 5 6

No. of days: 2 2 10 6

This can be considered as a binomial model, with n=6, for the total number of eggs laid in a day. State the probability that a randomly chosen hen lays an egg on a given day. Calculate the expected frequencies of 3,4,5 and 6 eggs.

I know the probability required is 5/6. but i dont know how to find the expected frequencies.
