According to an August 2011 survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, nearly 40% of adult cell phone owners have downloaded an application ("app") to their cell phone. The accompanying table gives the probability distribution for x, the number of apps used at least once a week by cell phone owners who have downloaded an app to their phone. (The probabilities in the table are based on information from the Pew Internet & American Life Project survey.)

$\begin{matrix} \text{Number of Apps Used, x} & \text{p(x)}\\ \text{0} & \text{.17}\\ \text{1} & \text{.10}\\ \text{2} & \text{.11}\\ \text{3} & \text{.11}\\ \text{4} & \text{.10}\\ \text{5} & \text{.10}\\ \text{6} & \text{.07}\\ \text{7} & \text{.05}\\ \text{8} & \text{.03}\\ \text{9} & \text{.02}\\ \text{10} & \text{.02}\\ \text{11} & \text{.02}\\ \text{12} & \text{.02}\\ \text{13} & \text{.02}\\ \text{14} & \text{.01}\\ \text{15} & \text{.01}\\ \text{16} & \text{.01}\\ \text{17} & \text{.01}\\ \text{18} & \text{.01}\\ \text{19} & \text{.005}\\ \text{20} & \text{.005}\\ \end{matrix}$
