When a certain glaze is applied to a ceramic surface, the probability is 5% that there will be discoloration, 20% that there will be a crack, and 23% that there will be either discoloration or a crack, or both. Let X = 1 if there is discoloration, and let X = 0 otherwise. Let Y = 1 if there is a crack, and let Y = 0 otherwise. Let Z = 1 if there is either discoloration or a crack, or both, and let Z = 0 otherwise. Sol n This is Bernoulli distribution X = Discoloration Y = Crack Z = either crack or discoloration or both Hence; otherwise x x for for x p 1 05 . 1 05 . ) ( = = = otherwise y y for for y p 1 20 . 1 20 . ) ( = = = otherwise y y for for z p 1 23 . 1 23 . ) ( = = = a. Let p x denote the success probability for X. Find p x Ans From the explanation above X = 1, p x = 0.05 b. Let p y denote the success probability for Y. Find p y Ans Y = 1, p y = 0.20 c. Let p z denote the success probability for Z. Find p z Ans Z = 1, p z = 0.23 d. Is it possible for both X and Y to equal 1? Ans Yes. If X = 1; Y = 1, then Z = 1. e. Does p z = p x + p y ? Ans No. If X = 1, p x = 0.05 and Y = 1, p y = 0.20; then Z = 1, p z = 0.23 which is not equal to 0.05 + 0.20 (0.25). f. Does Z = X + Y? Explain Ans No, because if X = 1, Y = 1, then Z = 1 but X + Y = 2. 7. Let X and Y be Bernoulli random variable. Let Z = XY. a. Show that Z is a Bernoulli random Variable. Ans If X = 1 and Y = 1, then Z = (1)*(1) = 1 If X = 0 and Y = 0, then Z = (0) * (0)= 0 If X = 1 and Y = 0, then Z = (1) * (0)= 0 If X = 0 and Y = 1, then Z = (0) * (1)= 0 Hence, the possible outcomes for Z are only 0 and 1 which is Bernoulli Distribution. b. Show that if X and Y are independent, then p z = p x p y Ans For example p z = P(Z = 1) ; where Z = XY = P ( X Y = 1 ) = P(X = 1) * P(Y = 1) = p x p y Section 4.2 Page 211 1.
