Let X ~ BIN (100,0·2). Compute P [10 ≤ X ≤ 30].


X ~ BIN (100,0·2), where n = 100, p = 0.2, q = 0.8

E (X) =np = 20, Var (X) =npq = 16, σ=4

Let X be a random variable with meanE (X) = µ and variance Var (X) = σ 2. Then any k > 0, the Chebyshev’s inequality is

Describe in Detail

The following values of the function f (x) for values of x are given:

f (l) = 4, f (2) = 5, f (7) = 5, f (8) = 4.

Find the value of f (6) and also the value of x for which f (x) is maximum or minimum.


This is written in the table in this function y = f (x)











For find x = 6, we use Lagrange’s interpolation polynomial because the x values is not equal interval. There are four values of x which gives the y values. The Lagrange’s interpolation polynomial formula is

Consider the two samples as follows:

Sample I = 6,7, 8,10,12,14,16,23

Sample II: 9,11,13,15,17,18,19,20,24

Test whether the examples have come from the same population by Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test at 10 % level of significance. [You can use normal approximation]


Let the sample I consider the population X and sample II consider the population Y. The hypothesis whether two sample comes from same identical population. We test the following null and alternative hypothesis is

In Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test, first consider the combined ordered sequence of the sample values is

For 20 pairs of heights of father (X) and son (Y) measured in cm, the following data are obtained:

Test whether the cut on the X-axis can be assumed to be zero, at 5 % level of significance.


In the regression model, the cut on the X-axis can be assumed to be zero means the intercept zero. The test of the hypothesis is

Describe in Detail

Let X have the density function,

(i) Find the constant c.

(ii) Find the distribution function.

(iii) Compute P [X > -1/2].


(I) To find the value of c using this density function, the integral of density is equal to one by probability definition. The range of X is|X| < 1

when X is positive, | X|=X < 1 and X is negative, | X|=-X < 1 that is X > -1

Describe in Detail

Write down the probability mass function of geometric distribution. State and prove its ‘lack of memory property’. Find also the mean and the variance of the distribution.


If there are number of trails such that the probability of success is p. So, the probability that there are x failures before the first success is

This is the probability mass function of geometric distribution
