This is the variance that we would get if we chose cards with replacement (15 / 16), multiplied by the correction factor (47 / 51) that we use because we are sampling without replacement . 3. Roll a die 100 times and let X be the sum of all of the rolls. (a) [4 points] What is E ( X ) and SD ( X )? Solution: The mean and standard deviation of a single die roll are 3 . 5 and q 35 12 , respectively. So E ( X ) = 100 · 3 . 5 = 350 and SD ( X ) = √ 100 q 35 12 = 5 q 35 3 . (b) [4 points] Why can we assume that X is approximately normal? Solution: It is the sum of several (100) independent identically distributed random variables, hence approximately normal by the Central Limit Theorem . (c) [6 points] Approximate P (200 ≤ X ≤ 400). Solution: With the continuity correction, P (200 ≤ X ≤ 400) ≈ P 200- 350- 1 / 2 5 q 35 3 ≤ X * ≤ 400- 350 + 1 / 2 5 q 35 3 ≈ Φ 400- 350 + 1 / 2 5 q 35 3 - Φ 200- 350- 1 / 2 5 q 35 3 ≈ 99 . 84% . (I did not require continuity correction, though it is applicable. Without conti- nuity correction, we would have gotten approximately 99.83%.) (d) [8 points] Now let Y be the result of rolling a die 50 times and summing the num- bers. Approximate P ( X ≤ 2 Y + 60). Solution: Let Z = X- 2 Y . Then E ( Z ) = E ( X )- 2 E ( Y ) = 350- 2 · 175 = 0 and V ar ( Z ) = V ar ( X ) + 4 V ar ( Y ), because X and Y are independent.
