1. (15pts) In order to pass a test you need to get at least 3 out of 5 problems cor- rect . Assume that the probability you get each problem wrong is 0.2. What is the probability that you pass the test ? (10pts) In another test you have 10 extremely difficult problems to solve. Assume that the probability that you get each problem solved is 0.1. Using a Poisson ap- proximation, what is the approximate probability that you solve at most 1 problem ? (Without using Poisson approximation, the answer is: 2 x =0 ( 10 x ) (0 . 1) x (0 . 9) 10 - x = 0 . 7360989291. So you have a ground for comparison.) 2
