Question

Ross and Rachel play chess. For any one game the probability of Rachel’s win is 0.35. If they are to play 8 times and the outcomes are independent of one another, what is the probability that Rachel will win exactly 4 games?

Answer #1

Solution'-

Let X: number of games win by Rachel

p= 0.35= probability of success

n=8 = Rachel play 8 time games whose outcomes are independent

Therefore, from above information

X~Binomial(n=8,p=0.35) distribution

Therefore, pmf of X is given by

Now here we have to find probability that, Rachel will win exactly 4 games.

That is,we have to find P(X=4) =?

Therefore,

Therefore,

Result:-

The probability that Rachel will win exactly 4 games is
**0.1875**

You enter a special kind of chess tournament, whereby you play
one game with each of three opponents, but you get to choose the
order in which you play your opponents. You win the tournament if
you win two games in a row. You know your probability of a win
against each of the three opponents. What is your probability of
winning the tournament, assuming that you choose the optimal order
of playing the opponents?

You play 10 consecutive games of chance. In one single game, you
win 100 dollars with probability 0.6, otherwise, you lose 150
dollars with probability 0.4. Assume that the outcomes of these 10
games are independent.
a) Find the probability that you will win at least 500 dollars
in these 10 games.
b) Find your expected gain in these 10 games. (Hint: Write the
gain as a function of the number of games in which you won.)

An instant lottery game gives you probability 0.03 of winning on

Suppose you play a series of 100 independent games. If you win a
game, you win 4 dollars. If you lose a game, you lose 4 dollars.
The chances of winning each game is 1/2. Use the central limit
theorem to estimate the chances that you will win more than 50
dollars.
