### Describe in Detail

Let k > 0 be a constant, and

Obtain P (X > 0.3).

### Explanation

We first find the k value for which the f (x) is purely probability density function that is

So, density is

### Describe in Detail

A unbaised 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)

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

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

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

### Describe in Detail

The speed y (in km/hr) of a car at different points of time x between 10: 00 a. m. and 10: 40 a. m. on some day was recorded as follows:

 Time x (a. m. ) 10 10.1 10.2 10.3 10.4 Speed y (in km/hr) 24.2 35 41.3 42.8 39.2

Calculate the approximate distance covered by the car between 10: 00 a. m. and 10: 40 a. m. on that day using Simpson’s one-third formula for numerical integration.

### Explanation

Answer: T he one-third rule of the integrand using Simpson’s rule is

Here n = 4, b = 10: 40 = 40 minutes, a = 10.00 = 0 minutes, h= (b-a) /n = 10 minutes

The distance covered by the

### Describe in Detail

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

### Explanation

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.

### Explanation

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

 x 1 2 7 8 y 4 5 5 4

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

### Describe in Detail

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]

### Explanation

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, f
