Since the dice are statistically independent, the probability of a double six is (1 / 6) 2 = 1 / 36. X is the waiting time until the first double six, hence it is a geometric random variable with success probability p = 1 / 36. (a) (b) so Problem 2 Let X be the number of calls. Then ,where .The normal approximation is .What we are to calculate is .The normal approximation with continuity correction for this is P ( Y > 115.5), where . This is Not part of the problem, but just for the record, the exact probability is .

(a) The number of oak trees X is distributed where A is the area of the rectangle, or 0.32 hectare. Hence the mean of X is . Then (b) Again, the number of oak trees X is distributed where now A is the area of the circle or hectares. Hence the mean of X is (c) As with any Poisson random variable so .In this case . Problem 4
