10/11 THE UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS AND ACTUARIAL SCIENCE Assignment 4 Due Date: November 17, 2010 (Hand in your solutions for Questions 4, 7, 8, 11, 14, 25, 27, 32) 1. Two fair dice are rolled. Find the joint probability mass functions of X and Y when (a) X is the largest value obtained on any die and Y is the sum of the values; (b) X is the value on the first die and Y is the larger of the two values; (c) X is the smallest and Y is the largest value obtained on the dice; 2. Consider a sequence of independent Bernoulli trials, each of which is a success with probability p . Let be the number of failures preceding the first success, and let be the number of failures between the first two successes. Find the joint mass function of and . 1 X 2 X X 1 2 1 2 X 3. A bin of 5 transistors is known to contain 2 that are defective. The transistors are to be tested, one at a time, until the defective ones are identified. Denote by the number of tests made until the first defective is spotted and by the number of additional tests until the second defective is spotted; find the joint probability mass function of and . 1 N N 2 N N 4.

Suppose that a point is uniformly chosen on a square of area 1 having vertices (0,0), (0,1), (1,0) and (1,1). Let X and Y be the coordinates of the point chosen. (a) Find the marginal pdfs of X and Y . (b) Are X and Y independent? (c) Find the probability that the distance from ( X , Y ) to the center of the square is greater than 4 1 . P. 1
