SIGN YOUR NAME HERE: (30) 1. A fair (Pr[heads]= 1 2 ) coin is flipped n times (independent flips), resulting in k heads. Note: Do not use the Demoivre-Laplace correction in this problem. (5) a. Compute mean E [ k ] and variance σ 2 k as functions of n . (5) b. If n = 1600, compute Pr [790 ≤ k ≤ 810] (give a specific number). (5) c. If n = 1600, compute the largest b such that Pr [ k ≥ b ] ≥ . 9. (5) d. Compute a quadratic equation for the smallest n such that Pr [ k ≥ 1000] ≥ . 95. (5) e. Solve the quadratic equation you computed in (d). What is n ? (5) f. Let e = k n- 1 2 . Compute σ 2 e as a function of n . Compute LIM n →∞ σ 2 e . WRITE YOUR ANSWERS HERE: (a): E [ k ]= σ 2 k = (b): Pr= (c): b = (d): (e): n = (f): σ 2 e = LIM n →∞ σ 2 e = 1 (30) 2.(30) 2....
