The University of Hong Kong Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science STAT1801 Probability and Statistics: Foundations of Actuarial Science (10-11) Example Class 8 1. Suppose ? 1 , ? 2 , … , ? ± are i.i.d., each with some unknown distribution that has an expected value, ² , equals to 25.7 and a standard deviation, ³ , equals to 4.3. If ± = 50 , find the approximate probability that the sample mean is less than 25. Repeat for ± = 100 . 2. There are 100 light bulbs whose lifetimes are independently distributed as exponential with mean 5 hours. If the bulbs are used one at a time, with a failed bulb being replaced immediately by a new one, what is the probability that there is still a working bulb after
