TA:

This quiz has 2 problems, worth a total of 105 points. You may tear apart pages 3, 4 and 5, as per your convenience, but you must turn them in together with the rest of the booklet. Write your solutions in this quiz booklet, only solutions in this quiz booklet will be graded. Be neat! You will not get credit if we cant read it. You are allowed one two-sided, handwritten, 8.5 by 11 formula sheet. Calculators are not allowed. You may give an answer in the form of an arithmetic expression (sums, prod that could be evaluated using a calculator. ucts, ratios, factorials) 5 of numbers k or (1 / 2) are also ne. Expressions like 8 k=0 3 You have 90 minutes to complete the quiz. Graded quizzes will be returned in recitation on Thursday 10/14.

a linear function, Y = aX + b, the means and the variances of X and Y are related by

Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science We also discussed several special random variables, and derived their PMF, 6.041/6.431: Probabilistic Systems Analysis mean, and variance, as summarized (Fall in the table that follows. 2010)

E[Y ] = aE[X ] + b,

var(Y ) = a2 var(X ).

Problem 1: (75 points) Note: All parts can be done independently, with the exception of the last part. Just in case you made a mistake in the previous part, you can use a symbol for the expression you found there, and use that symbol in the formulas for the last part. Note: Algebraic or numerical expressions do not need to be simplied in your answers. Jon and Stephen cannot help but think about their commutes using probabilistic modeling. Both of the them start promptly at 8am. Stephen drives and thus is at the mercy of trac lights. When all trac lights on his route are green, the entire trip takes 18 minutes. Stephens route includes 5 trac lights, each of which is red with probability 1/3, independent of every other light. Each red trac light that he encounters adds 1 minute to his commute (for slowing, stopping, and returning to speed). 1. (10 points) Find the PMF, expectation, and variance of the length (in minutes) of Stephens commute. 2. (10 points) Given that Stephens commute took him at most 19 minutes, what is the expected number of red lights that he encountered? 3. (10 points) Given that the last red light encountered by Stephen was the fourth light, what is the conditional variance of the total number of red lights he encountered? 4. (10 points) Given that Stephen encountered a total of three red lights, what is the probability that exactly two out of the rst three lights were red? Jons commuting behavior is rather simple to model. Jon walks a total of 20 minutes from his home to a station and from a station to his oce. He also waits for X minutes for a subway train, where X has the discrete uniform distribution on {0, 1, 2, 3}. (All four values are equally likely, and independent of the trac lights encountered by Stephen.) 5. (5 points) What is the PMF of the length of Jons commute in minutes? 6. (10 points) Given that there was exactly one person arriving at exactly 8:20am, what is the probability that this person was Jon? 7. (10 points) What is the probability that Stephens commute takes at most as long as Jons commute? 8. (10 points) Given that Stephens commute took at most as long as Jons, what is the conditional probability that Jon waited 3 minutes for his train? Problem 2. (30 points) For each one of the statements below, give either a proof or a counterexample showing that the statement is not always true. 1. (10 points) If events A and B are independent, then the events A and B c are also independent. 2. (10 points) Let A, B , and C be events associated with a common probabilistic model, and assume that 0 < P(C ) < 1. Suppose that A and B are conditionally independent given C . Then, A and B are conditionally independent given C c . Page 4 of 13
