by X(l) = 1; X(Z) = 2; X(3) = 3; X(4) : 4; X(5) = 5; X(G) = 6. Then ﬁnd the
distribution function F(:L') of X. (3] . If X is a Poisson random variable such that, %P(X = 1') = P(X = 3). Find (i) P(X 3 1) (ii) P(X g 3) (iii) p(2 g X g 5). [3} . A continuous random variable X has a probability density function, MK OSxSL

less than 30 marks, then ﬁnd the mean and standard deviation of the distribution. [3i . A bag contains 5 white and 2 black balls and balls are drawn one by one without replacement. What is the probability of drawing the second white ball before the
second black ball? [3] . construct the divided difference table for the following data: laiiii‘lhi l'éléi‘ii 132i 256i Hence, obtain the interpolating polynomial that ﬁts the above data. [Bl . Use bisection method to obtain a root of the equation, f (1:) = 00590 — are” = 0. in the interval [0,1] correct upto 4—decimal places. [3] . Find the positive root of f(x) 2: a: — 0.2 sin a: — 0.8 =2 O accurate upto 4—decimals, by using Newton—Raphson method. [3] . interpolate f(0) = 1, f(1) = 0, f(2) = —1. f(3) : 0 by cubic spline satisfying to 2 U and k3 = —6. [3] Approximate f(:r) by a suitable polynomial to show fab f(ar)dac a 3% [f0 +3)“1 + 3f2 +
