7. The probability that an employee of a company is late for work 'is 0.15 on any working dayand 0.35 if it rains. The probability that it rains is 0.24. Find the probability that
a) it rains and the employee is late [2]
b) it rains if the employee is late [2]
c) the employee is late if it did not rain [2]
8. The random variable X denotes the number of worms on a 1 metre length of a country path after heavy rain.
It is given that X has a Poisson distribution.
a) For one particular path, P(X = 2} =3P(x = 4). Find the probability that there are more than 3 wonns on
a 3.5 metre 1ength of this path. [4]

9. A game is played by tossing two unbiased coins repeatedly until two heads are obtained in the same throw.
The random variable X denotes the Dumber oftbrows required, Find an expression for P(X = r) [3]
Before playing the game, the player has to guess the value that X will take. If the player guesses correctly, he wins RM 5. For an incorrect guess, the player loses RM 1. Suppose the player guesses X = t. Express in
terms of t, the expected amount won in a game, [5J.

11. A student has a choice of two routes for traveling to school each day. Travel times for each route may be assumed to be normally distributed, with parameters (in minutes) shown in the table, and the time taken for any journey on either route may be assumed tobe independent of the time for any other journey.

be less than 160 minutes. [3]
d) Find the probability that another student in each of 50 occasions using route A, takes longer than 26
minutes in 20 or more of them. [3]
