Question

1.A fair die is rolled once, and the number score is noted.
Let the random variable X be twice this score. Define the variable
Y to be zero if an odd number appears and X otherwise. By finding
the probability mass function in each case, find the expectation of
the following random variables:

Please answer to 3 decimal places.

Part a)X

Part b)Y

Part c)X+Y

Part d)XY

2.To examine the effectiveness of its four annual advertising
promotions, a mail order company has sent a questionnaire to each
of its customers, asking how many of the previous year's promotions
prompted orders that would not have otherwise been made. The
accompanying table lists the probabilities that were derived from
the questionnaire, where X is the random variable representing the
number of promotions that prompted orders. If we assume that
overall customer behavior next year will be the same as last year,
what is the expected number of promotions that each customer will
take advantage of next year by ordering goods that otherwise would
not be purchased?

X 0 1 2 3 4

P(X) 0.083 0.225 0.328 0.194 0.17

Expected value =

A previous analysis of historical records found that the mean
value of orders for promotional goods is 24 dollars, with the
company earning a gross profit of 30% on each order. Calculate the
expected value of the profit contribution next year.

Expected value =

The fixed cost of conducting the four promotions is estimated
to be 20000 dollars with a variable cost of 6 dollars per customer
for mailing and handling costs. What is the minimum number of
customers required by the company in order to cover the cost of
promotions? (Round your answer to the next highest integer.)

3.The owner of a small firm has just purchased a personal
computer, which she expects will serve her for the next two years.
The owner has been told that she "must" buy a surge suppressor to
provide protection for her new hardware against possible surges or
variations in the electrical current, which have the capacity to
damage the computer. The amount of damage to the computer depends
on the strength of the surge. It has been estimated that there is a
3% chance of incurring 350 dollar damage, 4% chance of incurring
300 dollar damage, and 14% chance of incurring 75 dollar damage
from a surge within the next two years. An inexpensive suppressor,
which would provide protection for only one surge, can be
purchased. How much should the owner be willing to pay if she makes
decisions on the basis of expected value?

4.A charity holds a raffle in which each ticket is sold for
$25. A total of 9000 tickets are sold. They raffle one grand prize
which is a BMW M3 valued at $55000 along with 5 second prizes of
Honda motorcycles valued at $11000 each. What are the expected
winnings for a single ticket buyer? Express to at least three
decimal place accuracy in dollar form (as opposed to cents).

5.Nick's Ski Rental rents skis, boots, and poles for $ 20 per
day. The daily cost per set of skiis is $ 7. It includes
maintenance, storage, and overhead. Daily profits depend on daily
demand for skis and the number of sets available. Nick knows that
on a typical weekend the daily demand for skis is given in the
table.

11.A $85000 oil detector is lowered under the sea to detect
oil fields,

and it becomes detached from the ship. If the instrument is
not found within

36 hours, it will crack under the pressure of the sea. It is
assumed that a

SCUBA diver will find it with probability 0.72, but it costs $
600 to

hire each diver.

a)How many SCUBA divers should be hired in order to maximize
the expected gain?

answer: (round to nearest integer)

b)Using your answer to part a), what is the expected
gain?

12.To determine whether or not they have a certain disease, 72
people are to have their blood tested. However, rather than testing
each individual separately, it has been decided first to group the
people in groups of 12. The blood samples of the 12 people in each
group will be pooled and analyzed together. If the test is
negative, one test will suffice for the 12 people (we are assuming
that the pooled test will be positive if and only if at least one
person in the pool has the desease); whereas, if the test is
positive each of the 12 people will also be individually tested
and, in all, 13 tests will be made on this group. Assume the
probability that a person has the desease is 0.03 for all people,
independently of each other, and compute the expected number of
tests necessary for the entire group of 72 people.
