Unformatted text preview: EEL 5544 Midterm Examination Number 1
October 7, 2009 The time for this test is 2 hours. This is a closed book test, but you are allowed one formula
sheet. The formula sheet cannot contain any examples. You should write your name on the
formula sheet and turn it in with your exam. You may use a calculator on this test. You must show
your work to receive credit for a problem. Note that some problems are worth more points than
other problems, and the problems are not necessarily sorted in order of difﬁculty or point value.
You must sign the honor statement at the end of thetest in order to receive any credit. Salk/A775“ Exam I—1 , Exam 1—2 1. (18 points) Let (S, f, P) be a probability space. Suppose A, B, and C are events (i.e., are
members of F) with non—zero probability. Consider the following equations. If the equation
is true for all A, B, and 0, write “TRUE”. If the equation is not true for any A, B, C, write
“FALSE”. If the equation is true given some restrictions on A, B, and C, then specify the
restrictions. You do not have to prove your answer. (a)

work at UF. Suppose the professor randomly partitions the class into 10 groups of equal size. (a) What is the probability that the ﬁrst group created has exactly two students who did

at UP is 0.1, and the events that students did their undergraduate at UF are independent for
different students. Suppose the professor randomly partitions the class into 10 groups of
equal size. (c) What is the probability that the ﬁrst group created has exactly two students who did

undergraduate work at UF. Suppose the professor randomly partitions the class into 2 groups
of equal size. (e) What is the probability that all of the students who did their undergraduate work at UF
end up in one group? (f) Suppose the professor wants to create 2 groups, but that he does not want either group
to contain 7 or more students who did their undergraduate work at UF. The professor
partitions the group at random, but discards the partition if it doesn’t satisfy that condition.
What is the probability that the professor has to try 3 or more partitions? Exam 1—7 3. (18 Points) Consider the function fX($) : {039, —1 S m g 1 0, otherwise (a) Find 0 for fX to be a valid density function. I

the exam, etc. The professor wishes to design the exam so that P(A) : 0.4, P(B) = 0.5,
and P (C ) = 0.1. Let X be the grade, Where X is a Gaussian random variable with parameter p, and 02. If

from contact with a contaminated surface is 0.31, the probability of contracting HlNl from
inhaling airborne particles laden with the H1N1 virus are 0.17, and the probability of contracting
HlNl from contact with cough sprays from an infected person are 0.52. Suppose that if
you do not come into contact with any infected surface, airborne particles, or cough sprays
containing the H1N1 virus, then you will not contract it. Suppose that in a day, the probability of coming into contact with an infected surface is 0.01,
the probability of coming into contact with cough sprays from an infected person is 0.005. (a) Let p be the probability of coming into contact with airborne particles laden with the
H1N1 virus. Find the minimum value of p such that airborne particles is the MAP
source of a HlNl ﬂu infection. Let 3: mi ’1; W?) miv WW? “T” 0‘” “i‘w‘ Mi“
