A certain machine makes matches. One match in 10 000 on average is defective. Using a suitable

1 approximation, calculate the probability that a random sample of 45 000 matches will include 2, 3 or 4

defective matches. [5]

2 The number of emergency telephone calls to the electricity board ofﬁce in a certain area in t minutes

is known to follow a Poisson distribution with mean 1 t.

80

(i) Find the probability that there will be at least 3 emergency telephone calls to the ofﬁce in any

20-minute period. [4]

(ii) The probability that no emergency telephone call is made to the ofﬁce in a period of k minutes is 0.9.

Find k. [4]

(i) The random variable X denotes the number of people in a sample of n people who are classiﬁed as very

tall. Given that E(X)

2.55, ﬁnd n. [2]

approximate value for the probability that a sample of size 210 will contain fewer than 3 people who are

classiﬁed as very tall. [3]

4 X and Y are independent random variables each having a Poisson distribution. X has mean 2.5 and

Y has mean 3.1.

(ii) A random sample of 80 values of X is taken. Find the probability that the sample mean is less

than 2.4. [4]

5 A publishing fir has found that errors in the firs draft of a new book occur at random and that, on

average, there is 1 error in every 3 pages of a firs draft. Find the probability that in a particular firs

draft there are

(i) exactly 2 errors in 10 pages, [2]

(ii) at least 3 errors in 6 pages, [3]

(iii) fewer than 50 errors in 200 pages. [4]

6 The independent random variables X and Y have standard deviations 3 and 6 respectively. Calculate

the standard deviation of 4X − 5Y . [3]

7 In a golf tournament, the number of times in a day that a ‘hole-in-one’ is scored is denoted by the

variable ; , which has a Poisson distribution with mean 0.15. Mr Crump offers to pay $200 each time

that a hole-in-one is scored during 5 days of play. Find the expectation and variance of the amount

that Mr Crump pays. [5]

8 In a certain lottery, 10 500 tickets have been sold altogether and each ticket has a probability of 0.0002

of winning a prize. The random variable X denotes the number of prize-winning tickets that have

been sold.

(iii) Use your approximating distribution to f nd the conditional probability that X < 4, given that

X ≥ 1. [4]
