### Describe in Detail

Show that for 40,000 throws of a balanced coin, the probability is at least 0·99 that the proportion of heads will fall between 0·475 and 0·525.

### Explanation

For balanced coin the probability is p = 0.5. For Bernoulli trails where n = 40,000, the mean and standard deviation is

Using Chebyshev’s inequality,

### Describe in Detail

Let X be a random variable with E [X] = 4 and E [X 2] = 20. Use Chebyshev’s inequality to determine a lower bound for the probability P [0 < x < 8].

### Explanation

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

or ‎

σ 2 = E [X 2] - (E [X] ) 2 =4

Then, a lower bound for the probability

### Describe in Detail

Let X be a random variable with E [X] = 3 and E [X 2] = 13. Use Chebyshev’s inequality to obtain P [-2 < X < 8].

### Explanation

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

or ‎

σ 2 = E [X 2] - (E [X] ) 2 =4

Then, a lower bound for the probability

### 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
