A machine produces cloth with some minor faults. The number of faults per metre is a random
variable following a Poisson distribution with a mean 3. Calculate the probability that a metre
of the cloth contains five or more faults.

A sociologist wants to know whether the percentage of sons taking up the profession of their
father is the same in every profession. She decides to investigate the situation in each of four
professions. She obtained the following data.
63 out of 136 sons of male medical doctors became doctors
42 out of 118 sons of male engineers became engineers
35 out of 96 sons of male lawyers became lawyers
68 out of 150 sons of male businessmen became businessmen
At the 5 % level of significance what should her conclusion be?
(Total 10 marks) 502. Let ( 4, +) denote the group whose elements are 0, 1, 2, 3, with the operation of addition of
integers modulo 4. Let (G, *) denote another group of order four whose elements are a, b, c, d.
Let Φ be an isomorphism of ( 4, +) onto (G, *) defined as follows: Φ (0) = b, Φ (1) = d, Φ (2) = a, Φ (3) = c.
(a) Write down the group table for ( 4, +).
(1) (b) Hence write down the group table for (G, *).

Define the relation R on Y by aRb <=> a2 – b2 ≡ 0 (mod 5), where a, b ∈ Y.
(a) Show that R is an equivalence relation.
(4) (b) (i) What is meant by “the equivalence class containing a”? (ii) Write down all the equivalence classes.
