Quiz 8. November 3, 2010 Seat # _________ Name: _________________________ Closed book and notes. No calculator. Recall: In a multinomial experiment, let X i denote the number of trials that result in outcome i for i = 1, 2,. .., k . (Then X 1 + X 2 + . . . + X k = n .) The random vector ( X 1 , X 2 , . . . , X k ) has a multinomial distribution with joint pmf P( X 1 = x 1 , X 2 = x 2 , . . . , X k = x k ) = x 1 ! x 2 ! . . . x k ! n ! hhhhhhhhhhhhh p 1 x 1 p 2 x 2 . . . p k x k when each x i is a nonnegative integer and x 1 + x 2 + . . . + x k = n ; zero elsewhere. 1. (2 pt) T F X 1 and X 2 are independent. 2. (2 pt) T F Setting n = 2 yields the binomial family of distributions. 3. (2 pt) The factor p 2 x 2 in the multinomial pmf is the probability of an event. State the event (in words or notation).
