Up: Stat 5131 Stat 5131 (Geyer) Midterm 1 Problem 1 This is solved using a two-stage process exactly like we used to calculate the probability of most of the poker hands (full house, three of a kind, two pair, one pair). First we choose which suit gets the four cards. There are ways to do that. The other three suits get three cards, there is no choice remaining about how many cards go to which suit. Second we choose which cards go to each suit. There are ways to choose cards for the suit that gets four cards and ways to choose cards for the other three suits. Thus there are bridge hands with 4-3-3-3 distribution. Since there are possible bridge hands, the answer is (The numerical answer is not necessary for full credit, just the formula). Problem 2 This is a Bayes rule problem. Let A denote the event that the computer has an Acme disk, let B denote the event that the computer has a Barfulous disk, and F denote the event that the disk fails. Then we are given in the problem statement We are asked to calculate P ( A | F ).

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
