STAT 380 Group Activity 1 Solutions 1. ( 10 pts)Four cards will be dealt from the top of a well-shuffled deck. You have the choice of two bets: A. Win if you get a club, diamond, heart and spade IN THAT ORDER B. Win if you get four different suits in the four draws, IN ANY ORDER. Calculate the chance of winning each bet. Which bet do you have a better chance of winning? Bet A: P(win)=P(CDHS)= 13 13 13 13 . . . 0.0044 52 51 50 49 = Bet B: P(win)=P(CDHS or CSHD or …(all possible arrangements of C,D,H,S)) =4!* 13 13 13 13 . . . 52 51 50 49 ( or 52 39 26 13 . . . 52 51 50 49 )=0.1055 So you have 24 times of winning Bet B as compared to Bet A. 2. (15 pts) The average length of stay in a hospital is useful for planning purposes. Suppose that the following is the probability distribution of the length of stay in a hospital after a minor surgery: Days 2 3 4 5 6 Prob 0.1 0.4 0.25 k ( k -0.05) The value of k is ___ 0.15 _______. The average length of hospital stay after minor surgery is _____ E(X)= ( ) x xf x =_3.75 ___. The variance of the distribution of length of hospital stay is ___ Var(X)=E(X 2 )- [E(X)] 2 =_1.2875 ____ 3. a. (8 pts) Let X and Y be discrete random variables with joint p.m.f.

### 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.

• 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.
