OF UNIVERSITY CALIFORNIA, SANTA BARBARA Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE 139 Probability and Statistics Spring 2011 Homework Assignment #3 (Due on Tuesday 4/19/2011 by 8 pm in the Homework Box) A. Solve the following problems in the textbook: 1.6.4, 1.6.5, 1.7.4, 1.7.6, 1.8.2, 1.9.1, 1.9.3. B. Solve an additional problem: A and B are mutually exclusive events with probabilities P (A) and P (B ), respectively. Independent of trials the experiment are performed to see which one of the two occurs rst. What is the probability that event A occurs before event B ? Next solve a similar problem for the case where A and B are independent events (and not mutually exclusive). What is the probability that B does not occur before A? (Here we allow for the possibility that they occur simultaneously). Note: Answers to part B should only be in terms of P (A) and P (B ).
