player takes to score, including the scoring shot. (You can assume that each shot is independent
of the others.) 326. In a game, the probability of a player scoring with a shot is (a) Find P(X = 3).
(2) (b) Find the probability that the player will have at least three misses before scoring twice.
(6) (c) Prove that the expected value of X is 4.
(You may use the result (1 – x)–2 = 1 + 2x + 3x2 + 4x3......)

throughout the day. Find the probability that 6 patients will arrive at the emergency room
between 08:00 and 08:15.
(3) (b) The emergency room switchboard has two operators. One operator answers calls for
doctors and the other deals with enquiries about patients. The first operator fails to
answer 1% of her calls and the second operator fails to answer 3% of his calls. On a
typical day, the first and second telephone operators receive 20 and 40 calls respectively
during an afternoon session. Using the Poisson distribution find the probability that,
between them, the two operators fail to answer two or more calls during an afternoon

coffee after dinner. A survey of a random sample of 60 persons chosen independently of each
other was conducted to find if they sleep less soundly if they drink coffee after dinner. The
results are shown below:
Number of cups of coffee sleep is worse
after dinner sleep is the
same sleep is better 1 5 7 3 2 10 4 1 3 25 5 0 Dr. Logan wants to test the above data to determine whether sleeping patterns are independent
of the number of cups of coffee after dinner.
(a) Explain how he should test the data, mentioning the kind of test and the test statistic that
should be used.
(1) (b) Determine if the above data indicates that having coffee after dinner and sleeping
soundly are independent at a 5% level of significance.

Draw Venn diagrams for A – B and B – A and determine if B ∩ (A – B) = B ∩ (B – A).
(Total 3 marks) 227 330. Consider the set × + . Let R be the relation defined by the following: +
for (a, b) and (c, d) in
, (a, b) R (c, d) if and only if ad = bc, where ab
is the product of the two numbers a and b. (a) Prove that R is an equivalence relation on × + .
(4) (b) Show how R partitions × + , and describe the equivalence classes.
(Total 6 marks) 331. ABCD is a unit square with centre O. The midpoints of the line segments [CD], [AB], [AD],
[BC] are M, N, P, Q, respectively. Let L1 and L2 denote the lines (MN) and (PQ), respectively.
Consider the following symmetries of the square:
U is a clockwise rotation about O of 2π;
H is the reflection of the vertices of the square in the line L2;
V is th...
