Describe in Detail

The ith box contains 2i white balls and 6 - 2i black balls, i = 1 (1) 3. A fair die is cast once. 3 balls are taken at random from box 1, box 2 or box 3 according as the die shows up face 1, any of 2 and 3, or any of 4,5 and 6, respectively. Let X denotes the number of white balls drawn. Find E (X).

Explanation

E 1 = Box 1 2 white and 4 black when the fair dice value is x 1 =1

E 2 =Box 2 4 white and 2 black when the fair dice value is x 2 = (2,3)

E 3 =Box 3 6 white when the fair dice value is x 3 = (4,5, 6)

X denotes the number of white balls out of random

Describe in Detail

Items from a large lot are examined one by one until r items with a rare manufacturing defect are found. The proportion of items with this type of defect in the lot is known to be p. Let X denote the number of items needed to be examined. Derive the probability distribution of X, and find E (X).

Explanation

In this question, the sample size is n = x+r given and each trail only two possible outcomes. The probability of defect is same for each trail and trails are independent. The experiment continues until r defectives.

In the given question the number of manufacturing defect are fixed which is r and proportion of item which is defect that is proba

Describe in Detail

Let (X, Y) have a bivariate distribution with finite moments upto order 2. Show that

(i) E (E (X|Y) ) =E (X)

(ii) V (X) ≥V (X|Y)

Explanation

Let (X, Y) have a bivariate distribution with density function id f (x, y). The conditional expectation is define as

Note that E (X|y) is a function of y. If we allow y to vary over the support of Y, then E (X|y) as a function of the random variable Y.
