Q.51. Let X denote the number of hours you study on a holiday. Also it is known that

where k is a constant.

(i) Find the value of k.

(ii) What is the probability that you study atleast two hours? Exactly two hours? Atmost two hours?

Which time is considered the best time’ for self study?

What value is being promoted?

51. (i) 0.15

(ii) P(atleast 2 hours) = 0.75, P(exactly 2 hours) = 0.3 and ” Ptatmost 2 hours) = 055 Morning time is considered the best timefor self study because in the morning you are fresh (after a good sleep), there is no external disturbance and can concentrate better on studies. Value promoted is the importance of self study.

Q.52. Four defective organes are accidentally mixed with sixteen good ones. Three oranges are drawn from the mixed lot. Find the probability distribution of X;the number of defective oranges. What will happen if 4 bad persons are mixed with 16 good ones?

Q.53. There is a group of 20 persons who are rich out of which 5 are helpful to poor people. Three persons are selected at random out of them, writethe probability distribution for the selected persons who are helpful to poor people. Also find the mean of the distribution. Explain the value promoted in the question.

Q.54. A coin is biased so that the head is 3 times as likely to occur as tail. If the coin is tossed twice, find probability distribution of number of tails. Which value is being violated by using a biased coin?

Q.55. A die is loaded in such a way that getting an even number is 4 times as getting an odd number. If the die is rolled thrice, find the probability distribution of getting an odd number. Which value is being violated while using a biased die?

[Hint. Let p be the probability of getting an odd number in a single throw of a die, then probability of getting an odd number =4p. We have, P(l) + P(2) + P(3) + P(4) + P(S) + P(6) =1

=> P + 4p + P + 4p + P + 4p =1 => lSp = 1 => P = 15·

Probability of getting an odd number in a single throw of a die

p(1) + p(3) + p(5) = p +p +p =3p =3*1/15=1/5

Probability of getting an odd number in a single throw of a die is 1/5

and probabilities of getting an even number = 4/5 .

As the die is rolled thrice, the events are independent, so it is a case of binomial distribution. The random variable X takes values 0, 1, 2 and 3.]
