Draw a histogram of the sample. 3. Based on the intervals [0 , 5) , [5 , 10) , [10 , 17) , [17 , 25) , [25 , 35) , draw the density of the sample. Solution. 1.

In choosing a lunch a person is faced with three options, salad, meat plate or pasta. Assume that the person is twice likely to choose pasta than meat or salad.

We know that P ( p ) = 2 P ( m ) = 2 P ( s ) and on the other hand P ( p ) + P ( m ) + P ( s ) = 1, therefore P ( m ) = P ( s ) = 1 / 4 and P ( p ) = 1 / 2. Problem 3.
