Question

The probability that Cleveland wins a game over Golden State is 2/5 (0.4)

1 - What is the probability that Golden State won the best of seven series over Cleveland in seven games?

2 - What is the probability that Cleveland won the series over Golden State in 6 games?

3 - What is the probability that
Golden State won the series over Cleveland in 5 games?

4 - What is the probability that Cleveland win the NBA
championship?

Answer #1

1)probability that Golden State won the best of seven series over Cleveland in seven games =P(X=7)

=P(Golden State won 3 out of first 6 games and won 7th game) ==0.1659

2)

probability that Golden State won the best of seven series over Cleveland in six games =P(X=6)

=P(Golden State won 3 out of first 5 games and won 6th game) ==0.2074

3)

probability that Golden State won the best of seven series over Cleveland in 5 games =P(X=5)

=P(Golden State won 3 out of first 4 games and won 5th game) ==0.2074

4)

probability that Cleveland win the NBA championship =P(X=4)+P(X=5)+P(X=6)+P(X=7)

=0.1296+0.2074+0.2074+0.1659=0.7102

Consider a best-of-5 series, where a total of five games are
played, and whoever wins three or more games wins the series.
Suppose that you participate in such a series, and the probability
of you winning a game is 0.6. Assume that all games are played
independently.
(a) What is the probability that you win the series?
(b) What is the probability that the fifth game is necessary?
(i.e., 2-2 after game 4)
(c) Given that you had lost the...

The National Basketball Association (NBA) championship is a
series of up to 7 games between 2 teams. The first team to win 4
games wins the series. Suppose that the probability that Team A
beats Team B in any given game is p > 0.5, independent of the
outcome of all other games. Let f(n, p) be the probability that
Team A wins the series for a series of n games (n is odd) and a
game-win probability p.

Suppose the Sixers and the Warriors are playing in the NBA
finals (a seven game series). The first team to win four games wins
the series. Assume the Sixers have a win probability for each game
of 0.483. If the Sixers lose the first game, what is the
probability that they win the series? Perform a Monte Carlo
simulation to answer this question.

Suppose Team B is better than Team A. The probability that Team
B beats Team A in any given game is .6. (a) Suppose a championship
is decided by a one game series (e.g., the Super Bowl).
What is the probability that Team B wins the championship in a one
game series? (b)What is the probability that Team B wins the
championship if the championship were decided by the best of 99
games rather than a one game series?

A local soccer team has 6 more games that it will play. If it
wins its game this weekend, then it will play its final 5 games in
the upper bracket of its league, and if it loses, then it will play
its final 5 games in the lower bracket. If it plays in the upper
bracket, then it will independently win each of its games in this
bracket with probability 0.3, and if it plays in the lower bracket,...

In a volleyball game between two teams, A and B, the game will
be over if a team wins two out of three sets. In any set, team A
has a 60 percent chance of winning the sets.
Model this game with Markov chain. Hint: Use (WA, WB) as the
states where WA is the number of sets A wins and WB is the number
of sets B wins. For example state (1,0) means A won 1 set and B...

Suppose that two teams are playing a series of games, each team
independently wins each game with 1/2 probability. The final winner
of the series is the first team to win four games. Let X be the
number of games that the two teams have played. Find the
distribution of X.

Two teams, A and B, are playing a best of 5 game series. (The
series is over once one team wins 3 games). The probability of A
winning any given game is 0.6. Draw the tree diagram for all
possible outcomes of the series.

1)
a) Last year, the Toronto Maple Leafs won 46 games. Calculate
the probability that, over an 82 game season, an average strength
team (p=0.5) wins 46 games or more.
b) Calculate the probability for an average team (p=0.5) to win
9 games in a row.
c) Last year, the team lost 21 out of 26 games. Calculate the
probability for an average team (p=0.5) to win 5 games or less out
of 26 games.
Please include all the necessary...
