Unformatted text preview: rs m (population‐size) and k (number of distinct objects desired). Look at the corresponding distribution for the random variable W, which represents the total number of coupons clipped by shopping time. Without running any experiments, just look at the blue model distribution graph and the discrete model distribution table for W below, to estimate the odds that you will need to clip at least 35 coupons to get 20 distinct ones, as desired. 0.0023 2 b. Now, run 1,000 experiments in auto‐mode. In what proportion of these you had to clip at least 35 coupons to get 20 distinct ones, as desired? Answer varies. c. What is the discrepancy between the theoretical probability and the empirically observed odds of having to clip at most 24 coupons, in the above 1,000 experiments? Answer vari...
