Describe in Detail

A fair die is rolled twice. Let A be the event that the first throw shows a number ≤ 2, and B be the event that the second throw shows at least 5. Show that P (AUB) =5/9.

Explanation

A fair die is rolled twice, the sample space consists of thirty six outcomes. The sample space is

(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6)

(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6)

Describe in Detail

A positive integer X is selected at random from the first 50 natural numbers.

Calculate P (X + 96/X > 50).

Explanation

Total number of possible outcomes = number of ways in which the one random number can be chosen out of 50

n=(501)=50

Let Y be the event whose satisfied the relation, X + 96/X > 50

For which X we choose is

X… (93 more words) …

Describe in Detail

From a bivariate data set of 4995 observations, the following quantities have been calculated:

x=2353,x2=9508,y=1400,y2=70802,xy=8805

Obtain the estimated linear regression of X on Y.

Explanation

Let the linear equation is

X=β0+β1Y+ε

To solve this equation by least square method. In this approach, the residual sum of squares is minimized by partially differentiating with respect to β0 and β1.

Describe in Detail

Suppose that all the four outcomes 0 1, 0 2, 0 3 and 0 4 of an experiment are equally likely. Define A = (0 1, 0 4), B = (0 2, 0 4) and C = (0 3, 0 4). What can you say about the pairwise independence and mutually independence of the events A, B and C?

Explanation

Given that there are four outcomes. Define A = (O 1, O 4), B = (O 2, O 4), C = (O 3, O 4)

Their intersection is ABC=O4 and Union is AUBUC = (O 1,… (193 more words) …
