Section B: Statistics [50 marks]

7 Market surveys are carried out to determine the popularity of a new variety show

produced by a local entertainment corporation. The survey is conducted by an

independent company which hires 6 surveyors. Each surveyor is assigned to interview

30 males and 20 females, in three different age ranges as follows: below 18, 18 to 40,

and above 40.

10 Cucumbers are stored in brine before being processed into pickles. Data were

collected on the concentration of sodium chloride used, x, and the firmness of pickles

produced, y. The data are shown below in arbitrary units.

variance .

P( 2) P( 4),

27

X X = = = without the use of a graphic calculator, show that the

mean of X is exactly 2.25. [2]

With the aid of a graphic calculator, find

(i) the most probable value of X, [1]

(ii) the least value of n for which the probability that the demands are met is at least

0.9 for any day, [2]

(iii) the probability that, in a randomly chosen period of 5 consecutive days, there

are more than 3 days on which exactly 1 van is rented out. [3]

12 The digits 0 and 1 are transmitted independently into a communication device with

probabilities p and (1 p) respectively. During the transmission, a digit may be

distorted due to some factors such as noise. As a result, a transmitted digit may be

received as a 0, a 1 or as an unrecognizable digit, #.

The outcomes can be illustrated by the following tree diagram.

0.05

0 is transmitted

0.85

received as 0

received as #

received as 1

(a) Given that the probability that a 0 is received is 0.49, show that p =0.55. [2]

Hence find the probability that the sequence of digits 110 is received as 1#0. [1]

(b) For a general value of p, the conditional probability that a 1 is transmitted given

that a 1 is received is denoted by f(p).

Show that

Prove by differentiation that f(p) is a decreasing function for 0 1 p and

explain what this statement means in the context of the question. [3]

13 The daily rainfall at a resort follows a normal distribution with mean mm and

standard deviation mm. The rainfall each day is assumed to be independent of the

rainfall on other days.

On a randomly chosen day, there is a probability of 0.05 that the rainfall is exceeding

10.2 mm.

In a randomly chosen 7-day week, there is a probability of 0.027 that the average

daily rainfall is less than 6.1 mm.

Find the values of and . [6]

Using a suitable approximation, find the probability that, in 60 randomly chosen days,

there are fewer than 7 days with rainfall more than 10.2 mm. [3]
