a. (2 marks) What are the lowest and highest mercury concentrations measured? b. (2 marks) What is the median mercury concentration? c. (2 marks) What is the lower quartile of mercury concentration? 2. Let X be a continuous Uniform random variable on the interval [1,3]; that is X can take on values between 1 and 3. a. (2 marks) What is the probability density function of X? b. Find and explain briefly: (i) (1 marks) P(X=2) (ii) ( 2 marks) P(2<X<5) 3. A panel of candidates to be interviewed consists of 5 women and 4 men. 3 candidates are chosen at random from the panel. a. (i) (2 marks) Since the sampling is done without replacement, what is the probability of choosing 2 women? (ii) (5 marks) Let X be a random variable representing the number of WOMEN drawn in the sample of 3 (without replacement). Write out the probability function of X. b. Regardless of your result in part (a)., assume the probability of drawing no MEN is 0.1, of drawing 1 MAN is .5, of drawing 2 MEN is .3, and of drawing 3 MEN is .1. (i) (3 marks) What is the expected value of the number of WOMEN drawn? (ii) (3 marks) What is the standard deviation of the number of WOMEN drawn? 4. Let X represent the return (in $) on investment for a share in Fred's Fast Food Franchise and Y be the return (in $) on investment for a share in Sal's Slimming Salons. Assume X and Y are continuous, random variables. The following is some information about their expected values: E(X) = 5 E(X^2) = 30 E(Y) = 4 Var(Y) = 12 COV(X, Y) = - 6 a. (1 mark) Attach appropriate units to the quantities above. b. Find the following, making sure you explain your work or the answer: (i) (2 marks) Var X (ii) (2 marks) E(XY) (iii) (2 marks) The expected return on a portfolio of 100 shares of Fred's and 200 shares of Sal's. (iv) (2 marks) The standard deviation of the return on the portfolio
