ENGM2032, Applied Probability and Statistics Winter 2010 Assignment #5 Due: Monday Feb 15 (Sexton), Tuesday Feb 16 (Studley), 2010 1) There are suspicions that the actual yield strength of steel rods manufactured by a certain company is below the advertised yield strength. After analyzing a sufficient number of rods it has been established that, on average, out of 10 rods, 2 will have yield strengths substantially below the advertised yield strength of 430 MPa, and, therefore, will be considered substandard. Based on this information, a) how many substandard rods is a lot of 100 rods expected to contain? b) what is the probability that a lot of 12 rods contains exactly one substandard rod? c) what is the probability that a lot of 10 rods contains at least two substandard rods? If a large number of rods are inspected one after another, d) how many rods are expected to be inspected before encountering the first substandard one? e) what is the probability that the fifth rod inspected is the first one to be substandard? f) what is the probability that the eleventh rod inspected is the third one to be substandard?

### What students are saying

• 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.
