Solution 02 1 Section 1.2 16. [2 points] 10 per cent. An example: 10 lost eye, ear, hand, and leg; 15 eye, ear, and hand; 20 eye, ear, and leg; 25 eye, hand, and leg; 30 ear, hand, and leg. 18. [2 points] (a) The right-hand side is the sum of the probabilities of all outcomes occurring in the left-hand side plus some more because of duplication. (b) 1 P ( A B ) = P ( A ) + P ( B ) - P ( A B ) . 22. [2 points] Ω = { 1 , 2 , 3 ,... } and the distribution is m ( n ) = (5 / 6) n - 1 (1 / 6). Now if 0 < x < 1, then X n =0 x j = 1 1 - x . Hence, 1 6 X n =0 ( 5 6 ) n - 1 = 1 / 6 1 - 5 / 6 = 1 . 26. [2 points] The probability that the two cards are of the same rank is 52 · 3 52 · 51 = 1 17 . Thus
