Each day, they roll their dice (independently) until someone rolls a “1”. (Then the person who did not roll a “1” does the dishes.) Find the probability that … a) they roll the first “1” at the same time (after equal number of attempts); b) it takes Dick twice as many attempts as it does Jane to roll the first “1”; c) Dick rolls the first “1” before Jane does. 2. At Sam’s Butcher Shop, ground beef packages vary in weight according to a normal distribution with a mean of 3.1 pounds and a standard deviation of 0.2 pounds, and are sold for \$1 per pound. Packages of Bratwurst vary in weight according to a normal distribution with a mean of 2.6 pounds and a standard deviation of 0.3 pounds, and are sold for \$3 per pound. Anticipating nice weather during the weekend, Dick buys two packages of ground beef and one package of Bratwurst, selecting the packages at random. What is the probability that Dick would exceed the \$15 limit “suggested” by his wife Jane? ( Assume independence. ) 3. Let X and Y have the joint probability density function
