Binomial Question 1
. Find the probability that in a family of 4 children there will be (a) at least 1 boy, (b) at least 1 boy and at least 1 girl. Assume that the probability of a male birth is ½. Out of 2000 families with 4 children each, how many would you expect to have (a) at least 1 boy, (b) 2 boys, (c) 1 or 2 girls, (d) no girls.
If 20% of the bolts produced by a machine are defective, determine the probability that out of 4 bolts chosen at random, (a) 1, (b) 0, (c) less than 2, bolts will be defective.
If the probability of a defective bolt is 0.1, find (a) the mean, (b) the standard deviation, for the number of defective bolts in a total of 400 bolts.
Find the probability of getting a total of 7 at least once in three tosses of a pair of fair dice.
A bag contains 5 white, 7 red and 8 black balls. If four balls are drawn, one by one, with replacement, what is the probability that (i) none is white (ii) all are white (iii) at least one is white (iv) only 2 are white?
If the chance that one of the ten telephone is busy at any instant is 0.2. (i) what is the chance that 5 of the lines are busy? (ii) what is the probability that all the lines are busy?
A fair coin is tossed 3 times. If X is the number of heads, give the probability distribution of X.
Poisson Question 8.
If the probability of a defective computer from a manufacturing unit is 2% in a lot of 200 computers, find the probability that (i) exactly 4 computers are defective; (ii) more than 3 computers are defective ?
A manufacturer of electric bulbs knows that 5% of his product is defective. If he sells bulbs in boxes of 100 and guarantees that not more than 10 bulbs will be
