1. Consider the statement "the probability that the Dow Jones Industrial average exceeds the 13,000 barrier by year end is 0.4. (a) Interpret the statement using the symmetry definition of probability. If you are unable to do so, explain. (b) Provide an interpretation for the statement in terms of the frequency definition of probability. If you are unable to do so, explain. 2. When a show comes to town, there are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday performances. From historical records, the probability that the three performances are sold-out are 0.16, 0.13 and 0.09 respectively. Assuming independence of the shows, what is the probability that there is ticket availability for at least one show? 3. 4. Service calls arrive at a maintenance centre according to a Poisson process, with an average of 2.7 calls per minute. (a) Obtain the probability that no more than four calls arrive in a minute. (b) Obtain the probability that fewer than two calls arrive in a minute. (c) Obtain the probability that more than 100 calls arrive in a five–minute interval. 5.
