AMS310 PRETEST 1 practice questions for Test 1 I. SHORT ANSWER/MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS. 1. ALL QUIZ QUESTIONS Given f(x)= 0.1x for x=1,2,3, 4. 2 (a) What is the value of μ x ? (b) What is the value of σ x ? 3. Given X has Poisson probability distribution with λ =3.2, (a)what is the value of μ ? (b) What is the value of σ 2 ? 4. Evaluate = - - 10 0 2 )! 10 ( ! ! 10 ) 3 ( x x x x 0.3 x 0.7 10-x . 5. P(A)= 0.4, P(A|B)=0.4, so P(A| B ) =___. 6. X has Poisson probability distribution with λ = 5. Use Table 2 to find P(X 4). 7. For a particular course, there are three grades, 0,1,2, 3 and 4, with 4=A etc. The cumulative distribution of the course grades is as follows: F(4)=1.0, F(3)=0.85, F(2)=0.65, F(1)=0.2 and F(0)=0.1. (a) What is the probability a student will receive a B? i.e., P(X=3)? (b) What is the probability that he will receive a score of C or less, i.e., P(X 2)? 8. Suppose X takes on values from 0 to 10 with f(0)=0.01 and f(10)= 0.05, then the standard deviation (a)must be less than 10 (b)can equal 10 (c) can equal 0 (d) can be more than 10.

    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.
