Winter2006 – selected questions Suppose X has a normal distribution with mean 3 and variance 4 and Y~N(5,9) is independent of X. Find P(2X<Y+1). A random variable X has probability function () 2 , 1 , 2 , . . . x f xx == . Find the moment generating function of X. P(A)=0.6, P(B)=0.5 and P(B¯|A)=0.5. Find P(AB). Are A and B independent?

Stat 230 Winter 2008 6. [5 Marks] MathSoc (Math Society) ties are only made by 2 companies, Pamco and Sascs and only come in 2 types, Business and Doubledeg. 60% of the ties are made by Sascs. 80% of the ties made at Sascs are Business while 70% of the Pamco ties are Business. MathSoc uses both companies to produce a box of ties for the 2009 frosh. If a particular 2009 frosh selects a tie at random from the box of ties, Fnd the probability (a) the tie has a Doubledeg style. (b) the tie came from Pamco given taht it has a Doubledeg style. 7. [11 Marks] (a) You arrive at a bus stop at 10 am knowing that the bus will arrive at some time uniformly distributed between 10 and 10:30. i. What is the probability you will have to wait exactly 10 minutes? ii. What is the probability you will have to wait longer than 10 minutes?

Stat 230 Winter 2008 8. [19 Marks] Toxicity in water is measured in terms of EC 50. 50 represents the concentration of toxin required to kill 50% of the Fsh in a tank. Although EC50 is written as a single number, there is some ±exibility in the measurement. Essentially 2 scientists may not measure the same concentration. As a result the EC50 can be modelled using normally distributed random variables. It is known that a concentration of toxin A has an EC50 measurement distributed as A N (0 . 06 , 0 . 0025) in parts per million (ppm) and that toxin B has an
