Question 1. Suppose a biased coin is flipped 3 times. Let X be the number of heads in 3 flips. The PMF of X is partially shown below: P(X=0) = ? P(X=1) = 12/27 P(X=2) = 6/27 P(X=3) = ? a) Find the values for the question marks above. P(X=1) = 3 C 1 (p) 1 (1-p) 2 = 12/27 = (3) (p) 1 (1-p) 2 4/27 = (p)(1-p) 2 so p=1/3 by inspection (sorry) P(X=0) = (2/3) 3 = 8/27 P(X=3) = (1/3) 3 = 1/27 b) Find the expected value of X X~Binomial (N=3, p=1/3) E(X) = Np = 1 OR (1/27)[ (0)(8) + (1)(12) + (2)(6) + (3)(1) ] = 1 c) What is the probability of a head on a single flip? P = 1/3 from part a)
