Then, ( ) 10*1/10 5*2 /10 3*2 /10 2.6 EX =+ + = 5.26 Solution Let X be the number of heads that we get, then, ( | ) ( 524.5 | 0.5) 1 (1.55) 0.0606 PFa l se Fa i r p =≥ = = Φ = and ( | ) ( 524.5 | 0.55) 1 (1.62) 0.0526 P False Biased P X p = = Φ = 5.28 Solution Let X be the number of lefthanders. Assuming that X is approximately distributed as a binomial random variable with parameter n=200, p=0.12. Since (1 ) 21.12 10 np p => , we can use normal distribution to approximate this binomial random variable X. Then, with Z being a standard normal random variable, ( 19.5) ( 0.98) 0.8365 PZ > −= 5.32 Solution Let X be the time required to repair a machine, then, (a) 1 ( 2) exp( 2*1/ 2) e = 1
