Problem Set 2 Solutions (1) Number of total possible outcomes is 4! = 24 . Number of selections of 2 correctly placed envelops is C 2 4 = 6 . In the 2 correctly placed envelops, there is only one possible way to assign letters, i.e. the correct way. And in the two miss placed envelops, there is also only one way to assign letters, i.e. the swapped way. So the number of outcomes with exactly two letters will go to the correct envelop is 6 ° 1 ° 1 = 6 . The probability is 6 = 24 = 0 : 25 . The probability of exactly three letters go into correct envelops is 0 . Because if three letters go to into the correct envelop, the rest of letter and envelop will automatically match correctly. So the number of correct match will be four. It is impossible to have exact 3 letters go into correct envelop. (2) Assuming that the °rst passenger get o/ at one of the seven ±oors, the second passenger must get o/ at one of the remaining six ±oors in which the passenger 1 does not get o/ and the probability of this case is 6/7.

    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.
