Converting of word conditions into inequalities.doc Mar 18’10 Let X be a discrete random variable which may take on values of 0, 1, 2, 3, … Present the following word conditions in the form of an appropriate inequality with symbols or ≤ . 1. A variable X may take on a value which is at least 10. Solution : X ≥ 10 . (In other words, a variable X may take on a value which is 10 or more.) 2. A variable X may take on values which are no less than 7. Solution : X ≥ 7 . (In other words, a variable X may take on a value which is 7 or more.) 3. A variable X may take on values which do not exceed 12. Solution : X ≤ 12. (In other words, a variable X may take on a value which is 12 or less.) 4. A variable X may take on values which are no more than 7. Solution

A variable X may take on values fewer than 10 . Solution : X ≤ 9 . (In other words, a variable X may take on a value which is 9 or less.) 8. A variable X may take on values in the interval [20, 30] . Solution : 20 ≤ X ≤ 30 . (Endpoints are included in the interval.) 9. A variable X may take on values in the interval ( 20, 30 ) . Solution : 21 ≤ X ≤ 29 .
