1 MGTECON 603, Econometrics I Jules H. van Binsbergen Fall 2009 Stanford GSB PROBLEM SET 1 Due: Friday October 2 nd in class 1. Six fair dice are rolled one time. What is the probability that each face (each number one through six) appears? 2. If two fair dice are tossed, what is the smallest number of throws for which the prob- ability of getting at least one double six exceeds 0.5. (Pascal and M´ er´ e corresponded about this problem in 1654). 3. Two dice are thrown and three events are defined as follows: A means ”odd face with first die”; B means ”odd face with second die”; and C means ”odd sum” (one face is odd, one face is even). If each of the 36 sample points has probability 1/36, then (a) Show that the events are pairwise independent. (b) Show that the events are not jointly independent. 4. Through mid-1999, the Boeing Co. had manufactured 746 aircraft in its 767-model series. Exactly two of these 746 aircraft had crashed. The first occured in 1989, and was the 283rd aircraft manufactured in the 767-series. The second crash occurred in

What students are saying

• 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.
