NAME(print in CAPITAL letters, ﬁrst name ﬁrst): K 6 ( N AME(sign): Instructions: Each of the 6 problems has equal worth. Read each question carefully and answer it in the space provided. YOU MUST SHOW ALL YOUR WORK TO RECEIVE
FULL CREDIT. Calculators, books or notes are not allowed. Unless you are directed to do so, or it is required for further work, do not evaluate binomial symbols, powers, etc. to give the
result as a decimal number. Make sure that you have a total of 7 pages (includingthis one) with 6 problems. llll C) TOTAL 2 1. Bob tosses a fair coin 10 times. He wins if all tosses are Heads or if all tosses are Tails. Otherwise, Alice wins. Note that 29 = 512, and assume that in every year they play the game
once in each of 256 “play—days.” (3) Compute the probability that Bob wins in one instance of this game. :FCBOL WI‘Aﬁ3 _’ :10 : E45.— (b) Compute, using the relevant approximation, the probability that Bob wins exactly twice in

cards, with respective dollar amounts 0, 2, 4, and 8 written on them. Guests enter the casino
one by one, and each independently grabs at random one of the cards from the bag and gets as
many dollars as the number on the card. . ‘ (3.) Alice, Bob, Carl, and Diane are ﬁrst four guests. Compute the variance of their combined Winnings. ‘ ‘
