Unformatted text preview: 2028: Basic Statistical Methods Solutions  Homework 1 II Random Variables 1 Let X be the time between two successive arrivals at the driveup window of a local bank. i. Since the events occur according to a Pois ( = 10) distribution, then X , the time between successive events per hour, is exp ( = 10) . ii. If X exp ( ) then X is memoryless. In other words, P ( X > a + b  X > a ) = P ( X > b ) . We need to find P ( X > . 5  X > . 25) . According to the observation above: P ( X > . 5  X > . 25) = P ( X > . 25) = 1 P ( X . 25) = 1 (1 e 10 . 25 ) = e 2 . 5 . 0881 2 Let X be the number of neurons that have higher firing rates for Condition 1. Then we assume X B (100 , . 58) . (a) We want P ( X = 90) . This is the value of the binomial pdf at x = 90 . The R command used is dbinom(90,100,.58) We get P ( X = 90) (b) We want P (40 X 60) = P ( X 60) P ( X < 40) = P ( X 60) P ( X 39) ....
