Let X 1 ,X 2 ,X 3 ,... represent the numbers obtained on random draws with replacement from a box of 4 tickets numbered 0 , 1 , 1 and 2. a) Display the distribution of X 1 + X 2 in a suitable table. b) Identify this distribution as a standard one, and indicate its parameters. c) Obtain decimal values for the mean and variance of this distribution. d) Give a numerical expression for P ( X 1 + X 2 = X 3 + X 4 ) e) Let P = P ( X 1 + X 2 + · · · + X 49 + X 50 ≤ 55). Find z such that P differs from Φ( z ) by at most 0 . 01, where Φ is the standard normal cumulative distribution function. 2. In a kids’ baseball league, teams A and B play until one team has won two games. Assume that each game played is won by team A with probability p A , independently of the results of all previous games.
