(2 marks each)

Circle the right answer:

I) Let A,B and C be three mutually exclusive random events with nonzero probability.

Given T

the following statements:

i)P (A SB) =

S P (A/B)P (B) = P (B/A)P (A)

ii) P (A TB C) = P (A)

S + P (B) + P (C)

iii) P (A B)c = P (Ac B c )

a. All three statements are true.

b. Only statement i) is true.

c. Only statements i) and ii) are true.

d. None of the above.

a. E(Y ) = 8 and V ar(X) = 5

b. E(Y ) = 13 and V ar(X) = 128

c. E(Y ) = 13 and V ar(X) =

128

d. None of the above.

V) A fair coin is tossed 3 times. Assume toss are independent. Let Ai be the event ith

toss results in heads. Let B be the event: B = (A1 A2 ) Ac3 then the probability of B is:

b. P (B) = 1/2

c. P (B) = 5/8

Part B: Problems

In a research on the use of cellphones by 8 individuals, 5 persons use i-phones and

another 3 use the Samsung brand. Three persons are selected randomly and simultaneously

from the group. Find the probability that:

a) None of the selected individuals uses i-phone.

b) More persons in the sample use i-phone than Samsung.

Question 2 Marks:20(3,3,3,6,5)

Refer to Question 1 and assume the persons in the sample are selected at random and with

replacement. Define a random variable X as the number of persons in the sample that use

i-phones.

a) What is the probability distribution of X? Mention name, parameters and possible

values.

b) Write the probability mass function pX (x).

c) What is the expected value and standard deviation of X?

d) Find the probability that at least one selected person uses i-phone.

e) Define B as the random event at least one person uses i-phone. Find the conditional

probability mass function pX/B (x) at x = 1.

for a laptop computer claims the battery pack can function for 8 hours, on the average,

before having to be recharged. Assuming the functioning time of the battery is a random

variable normally distributed with average = 8 hours and standard deviation = 1 hours

find the probability that a battery runs for 9 hours or more.
