Will Landau September 12, 2011 Problem Set 3 Solutions Exercise 3.1 (Devore 2.29) . a. Domain names with just 2 letters: this is like sampling from a bag of 26 unique blocks with replacement. # names = (# letters) × (# letters) = 26 · 26 = 676 . Domain names of length 2 with digits and letters: this time we have 36 things to choose from (26 letters, 10 digits. # names = 36 · 36 = 1296 b. This is exactly like part (a) except that now, domain names are 3 characters long instead of 2. Without digits: # names = 26 3 = 17,576 . With digits: # names = 36 3 = 46,656 . c. 26 4 = 456,976 ; 36 4 4 = 1,679,616 d. probability that a 4-character name is already taken = 1- probability that a name is available = 1 - # available names # allowable names = 1 - 97786 36 4 = .942 Exercise 3.2 (Devore 2.32) . a. 5 for receiver × 4 for disc player × 3 for speakers × 4 for turntable = 240 b. 1 · 1 · 3 · 4 = 12 c. 4 · 3 · 3 · 3 = 108 d. # ways with at least on Sony component = (total # ways) - (# with no Sony component) = 240 - 4 · 3 · 3 · 3= 132 e. P(at least one Sony component) = # ways to select at least one Sony component total # possible selections = 132 240 = .55 P(exactly one sony component) = P(the only Sony component is the receiver) + P(the only Sony component is the compact disc player) + P(the only Sony component is the turntable) = 1 · 3 · 3 · 3 240 + 1 · 4 · 3 · 3 240 + 4 · 3 · 3 · 1 240 = .413 1

Exercise 3.3 (Devore 2.34) . a. ( 25 5 ) = 25! 20!5! = 53 , 130 b. # ways = (# ways to select 2 with electrical defects) × (# ways to select 3 without electrical defects) = ( 6 2 ) · ( 19 3 ) = 6! 4!2! · 19! 16!3! = 14535 c. P(at least 4) = P(exactly 4) + P(exactly 5) = ( 19 4 ) · ( 6 1 ) ( 25 5 ) + ( 19 5 )( 6 0 ) ( 25 5 ) = 0.6565 Exercise 3.4 (Devore 2.38) . a. P(select 2 75-W bulbs) = (# ways to select 2 75-W bulbs)(# ways to select one non-75-W bulb) total # ways to select 3 bulbs = ( 6 2 )( 9 1 ) ( 15 3 ) = .2967 b. P(same rating) = P(select all 40-W) + P(select all 60-W) + P(select all 75-W) = ( 4 3 ) ( 15 3 ) + ( 5 3 ) ( 15 3 ) + ( 6 3 ) ( 15 3 ) = .0747 c.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
