CHAPTER 15 SOME SPECIAL DISCRETE DISTRIBUTIONS EXERCISE 15.1 Section 15.1 The Bernoulli distribution (page 332) 1. (a) Bernoulli, Q two possible outcomes: Male, Female (b) Bernoulli, Q two possible outcomes: Fail, Pass (c) not Bernoulli, Q more than two possible outcomes such as Christian, Catholic, Buddhist (d) Bernoulli, Q two possible outcomes: Hit, Miss 2. (a) Bernoulli, two possible outcomes: Valid, Not valid (b) not Bernoulli, there can be many makes, not just 2 (c) Bernoulli, two possible outcomes: Work, Fail (d) not Bernoulli, more than two possible outcomes such as Chinese, English, German 3. An appropriate random variable for each of (a) (d) is X such that (a) = not work does chip the if 0, works chip the if , 1 X (b) = male is e interviewe the if 0, female is e interviewe the if , 1 X (c) = negative is test the if 0, positive is test the if , 1 X (d) = otherwise 0, standard specified a meets fitness physical the if , 1 X 4. An appropriate random variable for each of (a) (d) is X such that (a) = flowering not is plant the if 0, flowering is plant the if , 1 X (b) = car a own not does it if 0, car a owns household the if , 1 X (c) = smoker - non a is student the if 0, smoker a is student the if , 1 X (d) = infertile is horse the if 0, fertile is horse the if , 1 X 199
