STAT 100A HWV Problem 1: Suppose in the population of voters, the proportion of those who would vote for a certain candidate is 20%. (1) If we randomly sample 5 people from the population of voters, what is the probability that we get at least 2 supporters of this candidate? (2) If we randomly sample 100 people from the population of voters. Let X be the number of people among these 100 people who support this candidate. What is the probability that X > 28? You only need to write down this probability. You do not need to calculate it. (3) What is E( X ) and Var( X )? What is the standard deviation of X ? Problem 2: For T Geometric( p ), calculate E( T ). If p = . 2, then what is the probability that

Unformatted text preview: T > 5? Problem 3: Suppose we divide the time axis into small periods (0 , Δ t ), (Δ t, 2Δ t ), . .. Within each period, we flip a coin independently. The probability of getting a head is λ Δ t . (1) Let X be the number of heads within the interval [0 ,t ]. Calculate the limit of P ( X = k ) as Δ t → 0, for k = 0 , 1 , 2 ,... . Also calculate E[ X ]. (2) Let T be the time until the first head. Calculate the limit of P ( T > t ) as Δ t → 0. In both (1) and (2), let us assume that t is a multiple of Δ t . (3) Please give a real example of X and T with concrete value of λ and its unit. What is the meaning of λ ? 1...

    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.
