Quiz 4. September 29, 2010 Seat # _________ Name: _________________________ Closed book and notes. No calculators. Remember. You do not need to simplify answers. Consider flipping a coin twice, independently. For i = 1, 2, let H i denote that flip i results in "heads" facing up. Let X denote the number of flips that results in "heads" facing up. Then P( X = 0) = 1 / 4, P( X = 1) = 1 / 2, and P( X = 2) = 1 / 4. 1. (2 pts) Write f X , the probability mass function (pmf) of X . 2. (2 pts) Write F X , the cumulative distribution function (cdf) of
