EAS 305 Applied Probability & Statistics Inference Homework 3 Due Day: September 29, 2010 (in Class) 1. A car rental agency has either 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , or 5 cars returned each day, which probabilities 1 6 , 1 6 , 1 3 , 1 12 , 1 6 and 1 12 , respectively. Find the mean and the variance of the number of cars returned. 2. The cumulative distribution function that a television tube will fail in t hours is 1 - e - ct , where c is a parameter dependent on the manufacturer and t 0. Find the probability density function of T , the life of the tube. 3. Consider the three functions given below. Determine and explain which functions are distribution functions (CDFs). (a) F X ( x ) = 1 - e - x , 0 < x < . (b) G X ( x ) = ( e - x , 0 x < , 0 , x < 0 . (c) H X ( x ) = ( e x , -∞ < x 0 , 1 , x > 0 . 4. Refer to problem 3 mentioned above. Find the probability density function corresponding to the function given, if they are distribution functions. 5. The demand for a product is - 1, 0, +1, +2 per day with probabilities 1 5 , 1 10 , 2 5 , 3 10 , respectively. A demand of - 1 implies a unit is returned. Find the expected demand and the variance.

    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.
