Question 41 10 X i =7 10 i ! ± 1 2 ² 10 Question 42 5 3 ! p 3 (1 - p ) 2 + 5 4 ! p 4 (1 - p ) + p 5 3 2 ! p 2 (1 - p ) + p 2 ⇐⇒ 6 p 3 - 15 p 2 + 12 p - 3 0 ⇐⇒ 6( p - . 5)( p - 1) 2 0 ⇐⇒ p . 5 Question 44 α n X i = k n i ! p i 1 (1 - p 1 ) n - i + (1 - α ) n X i = k n i ! p i 2 (1 - p 2 ) n - i Question 46 Denote p as the probability of making correct decision: p = . 8 · . 65 + . 9 · . 35 = . 835 So the probability of the jury did the correct decision: P { correct decision } = . 65 12 X i =9 12 i ! p i (1 - p ) 12 - i + . 35 12 X i =4 12 i ! = . 92 . The probability of defendants is convicted: P { correct decision } = . 65 12 X i =9 12 i ! p i (1 - p ) 12 - i + . 35 3 X i =1 12 i ! p i (1 - p ) 12 - i = . 57 1
