When you are finished, please make sure that you rewrite by hand and sign the honor pledge on the front of your exam booklet. 1. (16 points) Suppose that you are given a standard six—sided die that is loaded. Let the random variable X be the number rolled with the following probabilities: 1 Probability P(Xt=w) 0.2 0.3 . (a) Find the mean and standard deviation of X. (b) Draw a histogram of P (X = :16) vs. 01:. Include labels for the axes and tick marks. (c) Suppose you pay three dollars to play a game with the same loaded die. You roll the die once and receive a payment in dollars equal to what you IlOll. For example, if you roll a two, then you get back two dollars. Let Z be the random variable that describes your winnings. Find E (Z) . Is this a game you would like to play? Explain. 2. (14 points) Suppose that you are given the same die as in Problem #1 and that you roll it five times. (a) Find the probability that you get an even number three of the five times. Find the odds. (b) Find the probability that you get a multiple of three at most twice. Find the odds. 3. (15 points) At a children’s party, kids “bob for apples”. There are 30 apples total, ten of which are marked. Ten children each take a turn and remove one; apple (which they keep) from the tank.

He is allowed to takes five free thrdws and wins $100 for each basket made. Let X be the random variable that describes the players winnings. ‘ (a) What values may X take? ‘ (b) Create a table that describes the probability distribution of X (c) Find his expected winnings. Find the variance in his winnings. 5. (20 points) Let Z be a normally distributed random variable. (a) Find P(0.4O < Z). (b) Find P (0.55 > Z) (c) Find P(-—2.73 < Z < —2.14). . (d) Find 2 such that P(——1.00 < Z < z) = 0.16990. 6. (15 points) A fair, six-sided die is rolled 9,000 times. Let X be the number of times the number two is rolled. ( Approximate with a normal distribution the following: (a) P(X < 1000) (b) P (1000 < X < 8000) (c) P (X > 8000) Please rewrite by hand and sign the honor pledge on your exam booklet: “I pledge on my honor that I have not given or received any unauthorized assistance on this examination.” ...

    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.
