Describe in Detail

There are three identical bags U 1, U 2 and U 3. U 1 contains 3 red and 4 black balls; U 2 contains 4 red and 5 black balls; U 3 contains 4 red and 4 black balls. One bag is chosen at random; a ball is drawn at random from the chosen bag and it is found to be red. Find the probability that the first bag is chosen.

Explanation

Given that there are three identical bags U 1, U 2 and U 3. Then probabilities of selecting a bag are,

Let X be the event of selecting a red ball

Probability of selecting a red ball in U 1 is

Similarly, Probability of selecting a red ball in U 2 is

and probability of selec

Sample 1: 1,4, 7,9, 16,17,22,24

Sample 2: 2,6, 10,12,18,20,26,28,32

Test whether the examples have come from the same population by Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test. [Given value of Z for α = 0·05 = 1·645, where Z is N (0,1) ]

Explanation

Let the sample 1 consider the population X and sample 2 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
