An experiment consists of selecting a ball, noting its number, putting the ball back, selecting

another, and noting its number. There are 9 distinct ordered pairs of numbers that can be

obtained. Namely (0,0), (0,2), (2,2), (2,4), (4,0), (4,2), and (4,4). For example, (2,4) means a 2

was selected first, followed by a 4, Note that x = 3 for the pair (2,4).

Let x = number of the ball obtained on any selection. Then the probability distribution for x is

given by

X p(x)

0 1/3

2 1/3

4 1/3

(c) For this distribution, find (I) u, and (ii) O2 (2nd power). Compare with part (b), and note that

u (slash over x)= u and O 2/n, where n = 2 is the sample size.

Solution:

A large urn contains a collection of balls and each ball differs according to the number displayed

on it. The three numbers that are displayed on the balls are 0, 2 and 4. Since two balls are

selecting one after another with replacement, we have 9 distinct ordered pairs of numbers that

can be obtained. The 9 distinct ordered pairs are given below:

(0, 0), (0, 2), (0, 4), (2, 0), (2, 2), (2, 4), (4, 0), (4, 2), (4, 4)

(0+0)/2 (0+2)/2 (0+4)/2 (2+0)/2 (2+2)/2 (2+4)/2 (4+0)/2 (4+2)/2 (4+4)/2

X =0 =1 =2 =1 =2 =3 =2 =3 =4

From the above table, the distribution of the sample mean X is given as follows:

X 0 1 2 3 4 Total

Sub: Statistics Topic: Probability

0 1/9 0.1111 0 0 0

1 1.0000 2 5.3333

MEAN = 2

VAR = 1.3333

S.D. = 1.1547

(b) Mean of X : E( X ) = X i P( X i ) = 2

i

Variance of X : 2

= xi2 P( xi ) xi P( xi )

i i

= 5.333 – (2*2)

= 1.333

(c) Let x = number of the ball obtained on any selection. Then the probability distribution for x is

given by

X p(x)

_______

0 1/3

2 1/3

4 1/3

For the above distribution the mean and variance can be calculated as follows:

0 0.3333 0 0 0

1 2 6.6667

MEAN = 2

VAR = 2.667

S.D. = 1.632993

Mean: E(x) = xi P ( xi ) = 2

2 2

Variance: = x P( xi )

i xi P( xi ) = 6.667 – (2*2) = 2.667

i i

Comparing the above mean and standard with that of part (b):

Mean of X = X

=2

2

Variance of X : X

= 1.333

Mean: µ = 2

2

Variance: = 2.667

By comparing the above two results, we can see that the mean of the sampling distribution is

2

the mean of the population and the standard deviation of the sampling distribution is /n =

2.667 / 2 = 1.333

That is, X

=µ=2

2 2

X

= / n = 1.333
