Find the sample space of this experiment. What type of sample space is this?

2. Let S be the sample space S = {x1, x2, x3}. Let A be the event A = {x1} and B be the

event B = {x1, x2}.

(b) Find A I B .

(c) Find A U B .

(a) P ( A′ )

(b) P ( A U B)

(c) P ( A′ U B′)

(d) P ( B | A)

P (C ) = 0.4 , determine the following probabilities.

(a) P ( A U B U C )

(b) P ( A I B I C )

(c) P (( A U B ) I C )

6. In a particular community, a vote on a school bond issue will be taken in a month. To

assess the level of support for the bond issue, a sample of 200 registered voters in the

community is taken. Each person is asked whether he or she supports the bond issue and

whether he or she has children in school. The results of the survey are shown in the table

below.

Children in School?

Yes No

Support bond issue 75 25

Do not support bond issue 25 40

Undecided 15 20

(a) What is the probability that the person supports the bond issue?

(b) Given that the person has children in school, what is the probability that the person

supports the bond issue?

(c) Given that the person does not have children in school, what is the probability that the

person does not support the bond issue or is undecided?

7. A lot of 50 electrical components contains 10 that are defective. Two components are

selected at random, without replacement, from the lot. Find the following probabilities:

(b) The second component selected is defective given that the first is defective.

(c) The second components selected is defective given the first is acceptable.

(d) The second component is defective (you don’t know if the first component was

defective or not.)

8. A manufacturer uses electrical fuses in an electronic system. The fuses are purchased

in large lots and tested sequentially until the first defective fuse is observed. Assume that

the lot contains 10% defective fuses.

(a) What is the probability that five fuses must be tested until the first defective fuse is

observed?

(b) What is the probability that the first defective fuse will be one of the first five fuses

tested?

9. The pmf of a discrete random variable Y is given by y -4 0 2

f(y) 0.2 k 0.25

(a) What is the value of k?

(d) Find the cdf of Y. You must define the cdf for all values of Y to receive full credit.

10. Consider the discrete random variable X with finite range {1, 2, 3, 4} and probability

mass function:

xi f(xi)

1 0.2

2 0.2

3 0.3

4 0.3

(h) Sketch the cumulative distribution function F(t) = P(X ≤ t); hint: you’ve already

done most of the work.
