Unformatted text preview: assignment 3 1. Let X be the maximum of the number of heads obtained when Carlos and Michael each flip a fair coin twice. (a) Describe the underlying space S of this random experiment and specify the probabilities of its elementary events. (b) Show the mapping form S to S X , the range of X . (c) Find the probabilities for the various values of X . 2. A dart is equally likely to land at any point inside a circular target of radius 2. Let R be the distance of the landing point from the origin. (a) Find the sample space S and the sample space of R , S R . (b) Show the mapping form S to S R . (c) The bulls eye is the central disk in the target of radius 0.25. Find the event A in S R corresponding to dart hits the bulls eye. Find the equivalent event in S and P [ A ]. (d) Find and plot cdf of R . 3. The cdf of the random variable X is given by: F X ( x ) = x < 1 . 5 1 x (1 + x ) / 2 x 1 1 x 1 (a) Plot the cdf and identity the type of random variable.(a) Plot the cdf and identity the type of random variable....
