[16 points, 2 for each of the 8 questions.] 1. Suppose the events A 1 ,A 2 ,A 3 ,A 4 ,A 5 ,A 6 , and A 7 partition the sample space of an experiment (i.e. they are mutually exclusive and exhaustive) and that they are equally likely. (a) Find P ( A 1 A 4 ) (b) Find P ( A 3 A 5 A 6 ). 2. Suppose P ( A ) = 0 . 25 ,P ( B ) = 0 . 62 ,P ( C ) = 0 . 11, and we are given that P ( A B ) = 0 . 17, P ( A C ) = 0 . 02, and P ( B C ) = 0 . 63. (a) Find P ( A C ) (b) Find P ( B C ) 3. Suppose 10% of all a certain type of software widgets have connectivity problems. Suppose that a simple random sample of 10 such widgets are installed. (a) Let Y denote the number of them that have connectivity problems. The distribution of Y is (choose one) (i) binomial (ii) hypergeometric (iii) negative binomial (iv) Poisson (b) Find the probability that Y = 0. (c) Suppose that the 10 widgets are tested and it is found that 2 of them have connectivity problems. A customer purchases 3 widgets. Let X denote the number of them that have connectivity problems. The distribution of X is (choose one) (i) binomial (ii) hypergeometric (iii) negative binomial (iv) Poisson (d) Find the probability that X = 2. Problem 2. [15 points, 3 for each of the 5 parts.] In a popular local restaurant 65% of the customers order $7.50 meals, while 35% order $10.00 meals. Let X,Y denote the type of meal and the amount of tip left, respectively, by the next customer to walk in. The conditional probabilities for the amount of tip left, given the type of meal chosen, are y $1.00 $1.50 $2.00 p Y | X =7 . 50 ( y ) 0.7 0.3 0 p Y | X =10 . 00 ( y ) 0.05 0.65 .3 1. Find the joint probability mass function of X,Y . 2
