Probability - Long Answer Questions

41. Three bags contain a number of red and white balls as follows:

Bag 1 : 3 red balls, Bag 2 : 2 red balls and 1 white ball and Bag 3 : 3 white balls.

The probability that bag will be chosen and a ball is selected from it is .

Let E1, E2and E3be the events that bag I, bag II and bag III is selected and a ball is chosen

from it.

and

(i) Let E be the event that a red ball is selected. Then, Probability that red ball will be

selected.

(ii) Let F be the event that a white ball is selected.

42. Refer to Question 41 above. If a white ball is selected, what is the probability that it

came from

(i) Bag 2?

(ii) Bag 3?

(i)

(ii)

43. A shopkeeper sells three types of flower seeds A1, A2, and A3. They are sold as a

mixture where the proportions are 4:4:2 respectively. The germination rates of the

three types of seeds are 45%, 60% and 35%. Calculate the probability

(ii) that it will not germinate given that the seed is of type A3,

(iii) that it is of the type A2given that a randomly chosen seed does not germinate.

and

Let E be the event that a seed germinates and be the event that a seed does not germinate.

and

And and

(i)

(ii) [as given above]

(iii)

44. A letter is known to have come either from TATA NAGAR or from CALCUTTA. On the

envelope, just two consecutive letter TA are visible. What is the probability that the

letter came from TATA NAGAR.

Sol. Let E1be the event that letter is from TATA NAGAR and E2be the event that letter is from

CALCUTTA.

Also, let E3be the event on the letter, two consecutive letters TA are visible.

and

And and

[Since, if letter is from TATA NAGAR, we see that the events of two consecutive letters visible

are {TA, AT, TA, AN, NA, AG, GA, AR}. So, and if letter is from CALCUTTA, we

see that the events of two consecutive letters to visible are {CA, AL, LC, CU, UT, TT, TA}. So,

]

45. There are two bags, one of which contains 3 black and 4 white balls while the other

contains 4 black and 3 white balls. A die is thrown. If it shows up 1 or 3, a ball is taken

from the 1st bag; but it shows up any other number, a ball is chosen from the second

bag. Find the probability of choosing a black ball.

Sol. Since, Bag I = {3 black, 4 white balls}, Bag II = {4 black, 3 white balls}

Let E1be the event that bag I is selected and E2be the event that bag II is selected.

and

And and

46. There are three urns containing 2 white and 3 black balls, 3 white and 2 black balls,

and 4 white and 1 black balls, respectively. There is an equal probability of each urn

being chosen. A ball is drawn at random from the chosen urn and it is found to be

white. Find the probability that the ball drawn was from the second urn.

U2= {3 white, 2 black balls}

Let E1 be the event that a ball is chosen from urn U1, E2be the event that a ball is chosen from

urn U1and E3be the event that a ball is chosen from urn U3.

Now,

47. By examining the chest X ray, the probability that TB is detected when a person is

actually suffering is 0.99. The probability of an healthy person diagnosed to have TB is

0.001. In a certain city, 1 in 1000 people suffers from TB. A person is selected at random

and is diagnosed to have TB. What is the probability that he actually has TB?

E = Event that the person is diagnosed to have TB

And and

48. An item is manufactured by three machines A, B and C. Out of the total number of

items manufactured during a specified period, 50% are manufactured on A, 30% on B

and 20% on C. 2% of the items produced on A and 2% of items produced on B are

defective, and 3% of these produced on C are defective. All the items are stored at one

godown. One item is drawn at random and is found to be defective. What is the

probability that it was manufactured on machine A?

and

and

49. Let X be a discrete random variable whose probability distribution is defined as

follows:

(ii) E (X)

Sol.

add x2P(x) in fourth row and 1st column

(i) Since,

(ii)

50. The probability distribution of a discrete random variable X is given as under:

Calculate:

(ii) Variance of X.

Since,

51. The probability distribution of a random variable x is given as under:

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

Sol.

We know that,

(i) So,

(ii) Also,

(iii)

52. A bag contains (2n + 1) coins. It is known that n of these coins have a head on both

sides where as the rest of the coins are fair. A coin is picked up at random from the bag

and is tossed. If the probability that the toss results in a head is , determine the

value of n.

Sol. Given, n coin have head on both sides and (n+1) coins are fair coins.

and

Also, and

53. Two cards are drawn successively without replacement from a well shuffled deck of

cards. Find the mean and standard variation of the random variable X where X is the

number of aces.

X = 0, 1, 2

Now,

Also,

54. A die is tossed twice. A ‘success’ is getting an even number on a toss. Find the

variance of the number of successes.

Sol. Let X be the random variable for a ‘success’ for getting an even number on a toss.

and

At

At

At

Thus,

And

55. There are 5 cards numbered 1 to 5, one number on one card. Two cards are drawn at

random without replacement. Let X denote the sum of the numbers on two cards

drawn. Find the mean and variance of X.

Sol. Here, S = {(1, 2), (2, 1), (1, 3), (3, 1), (2, 3), (3, 2), (1, 4), (4, 1), (1, 5), (5, 1), (2, 4), (4, 2), (2, 5),

(5, 2), (3, 4), (4, 3), (3, 5), (5, 3), (5, 4), (4, 5)}

Let random variable be X which denotes the sum of the numbers on two cards drawn.
