(5 p0ints+5+5+5) For random variables X and Y with joint density function and f (:13, y) = 0 otherwise, ﬁnd (a) P(X g 2,Y g 3). (b) fx(\$)- (C) fy(y)- (d) Are X and Y independent? Explain. . (15) A hat contains n coins, f of which are fair, and b of which are biased to land with heads with probability g, with f + b = n. A coin is drawn at random from the hat and tossed once. It lands heads. What is the probability that it is a biased coin?. . (10+10) Particles arrive at a Geiger counter according to a Poisson process with rate 3 per minute. (a) Find the chance that less than 4 particles arrive in the time interval 0 to 2 minutes. (b) Let Tn minutes denote the arrival time of the nth particle. Find P(T1<1,T2—T1 <1,T3—T2<1) . (10+10) Let R and S be independently exponentially distributed random variables with parame— ters /\ and [1 respectively. (a) Find the density function for M = min(R, S). (Hint: Find P(M 2 23)) (b) Calculate P(R 2 S). .- . (15) Let X, Y be independent, standard normal random variables. Let A = {(x, y) E R2 : 9 < 2:2 + y2 < 16}. Find P((X, Y) E A). (A numerical answer is requested.) . (7+7+7+7) Cards from a well shufﬂed ordinary deck are turned face up one at a time. Let W1 = number of cards before the ﬁrst ace, and let W5 = number of cards after the last (fourth) ace. For i = 2, 3, 4, let IV,- = number of cards between the (2' - 1)th and the ith ace. (Of course, any W; may possibly be 0). (a) Let A = {(\$1,x2,x3,x4,\$5)l each 1:,- is an integer Z 0 and 2,1135, = 48}. Find the number of elements in the set A. (b) Find P(Wi = 101, W2 = \$2, W3 = 133, W4 = 154, W5 _= \$5) 1 ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
