Obtain the Expectation, Variance and Moment generating function of Binomial, Geometric, Poisson and Normal random variables. 3. The distribution function of a random variable X is given by If P(X=3)=0. Find, a. The constant c, b. the density function, c. P(1<x<6), d. Expectation and Variance of X. 4. The mileage (in thousands of mile)that car owners get with a certain kind of tire is a random variable having the probability density function Find the probabilities that one of these tires will last a. at most 10,000 miles; b. anywhere from 16,000 to 24,000 miles; c. at least 30,000 miles. 5. In a certain city the daily consumption of electric power (in millions of kilowatt-hours) is a random variable having the probability density If the citys power plant has a daily capacity of 12 million kilowatt-hours ,what is the probability that this power supply will be inadequate on any given day? 6. Consider a nonlinear amplifier whose input X and the output Y are related by its transfer characteristic: Assuming that compute the pdf of Y and plot your result. 7. The phase X of a sine wave is uniformly distributed over. Let . Obtain pdf of Y. 8. The amount of bread (in hundreds of kg) x that a certain bakery is able to sell in a day is found to be a numerical valued random phenomenon with probability density function Find k and hence find the probability that the number of KGs of bread that will be sold tomorrow is a. More than 500 Kgs b. Less than 500 Kgs c. Between 250 qnd 750 Kgs. 9. Suppose that there are 25 different types of coupons and suppose that each time one obtains

a coupon, it is equally likely to be any one of the 25 types. Compute the expected number of different types that are contained in a set of 10 coupons.

10. Suppose the distribution function of X is given by what is the probability mass function of X? 11. If the distribution function of F is given by Calculate the probability mass function of X. 12. Suppose a coin having probability 0.7 of coming up heads is tossed three times. Let X demote the number of heads that appear in the three tosses. Determine the probability mass funxtion of X.

13. An airline knows that 5 percent of the people making reservations on a certain flight will not show up. Consequently, their policy is to sell 52 tickets for a flight that can hold only 50 passengers. What is the probability that there will be a seat available for every passenger who shows up? 14. Let X be a random variable with probability density a. What is the value of c? b. What is the cumulative distribution function of X? c. Find the expected value and variance of X. 15.
