A die has 4 sides (not 6 like a regular die). The four sides are labeled 1, 3, 5, and 10 respectively. It is equally likely that you will get a 1 or a 3. It is equally likely that you will get a 5 or a 10. It is twice as likely that you will get a 5 or10 than a 1 or 3. a) Let X = the outcome of a roll of the die. Find the probability mass function of X. x 1 3 5 10 f X (x) p p 2p 2p 6p=1 thus p=1/6 b) Find E(X) E(X) = (1/6)[ (1)(1) + (3)(1) + (5)(2) + (10)(2) ] = (1/6)(34) = 5.6667 c) If Y=2X 2 +1, find E(Y) E(X) = (1/6)[ (3)(1) + (19)(1) + (51)(2) + (201)(2) ] = (1/6)(526) = 87.6667 d) If I roll the die 10 times, what is the probability I get exactly 3 tens? 10 C 3 (1/3) 3 (2/3) 7 = 0.260123 Question 2 ....
