Question

Evaluate the cumulative distribution function of a binomial random variable with n equals 3 and p equals 1/3 at specified points. Give exact answers in form of fraction. Upper F(0 ) equals Upper F(1) equals Upper F (2) equals Upper F(3)

Answer #1

**Answer:**

Given That,

n=3,p=1/3

Then,

q=1-p

=1-(1/3)

=2/3

It follows binomial distribution

Now, we have to find,

**(1). F(0):**

F(0)=P(X0)

**=8/27**

**(2).F(1):**

F(1)=P(X1)

=P(X=0)+P(X=1)

**=20/27**

**(3).F(2):**

F(2)=P(X2)

=P(X=0)+P(X=1)+P(X=2)

**=26/27**

**(4).F(3):**

F(3)=P(X3)

=P(X=0)+P(X=1)+P(X=2)+P(X=3)

=27/27

**=1**

X is a continuous random variable with the cumulative
distribution function
F(x) = 0
when x <
0
= x2
when 0 ≤ x ≤
1
= 1
when x >
1
Compute P(1/4 < X ≤ 1/2)
What is f(x), the probability density function of X?
Compute E[X]

Assume that x is a binomial random variable with n and p as
specified below. For which cases would it be appropriate to use
normal distribution to approximate binomial distribution? a. n=50,
p=0.01 b. n=200, p=0.8 c. n=10, p=0.4

- Determine the cumulative distribution function for the
random variable with probability density function ?(?) = 1 − 0.5?
for 0 < ? < 2 millimeters.
- Determine the mean and variance of the random variable
with probability density function

Suppose X is binomial random variable with n = 18 and p = 0.5.
Since np ≥ 5 and n(1−p) ≥ 5, please use binomial distribution to
find the exact probabilities and their normal approximations. In
case you don’t remember the formula, for a binomial random variable
X ∼ Binomial(n, p), P(X = x) = n! x!(n−x)!p x (1 − p) n−x . (a) P(X
= 14). (b) P(X ≥ 1).

The cumulative distribution function for a random variable X is
F(x)= 0 if x less than or equal 0, or F(x)=sinx if 0 is less than x
is less than or equal to pi/2 , or F(x)= 1, if x is greater than
pi/2 . (a) find P(0.1 less than X less than 0.2. (b) find E(x)

A random variable X has the cumulative distribution function
(cdf) given by F(x) = (1 + e−x ) −1 , −∞ <
x < ∞.
(i) Find the probability density function (pdf) of X.
(ii) Roughly, take 10 points in the range of x (5 points below 0
and 5 points more than 0) and plot the pdf on these 10 points. Does
it look like the pdf is symmetric around 0?
(iii) Also, find the expected value of X.

If random variable X has a binomial distribution with n =8 and
P(success) = p =0.5, find the probability that X is at most 3.
(That is, find P(X ≤ 3))

The random variable X has a Binomial distribution with
parameters n = 9 and p = 0.7
Find these probabilities: (see Excel worksheet)
Round your answers to the nearest hundredth
P(X < 5)
P(X = 5)
P(X > 5)

True or False?
19. In a binomial distribution the random variable X is
discrete.
20. The standard deviation and mean are the same for the
standard normal distribution.
21. In a statistical study, the random variable X = 1, if the
house is colonial and X = 0 if the house is not colonial, then it
can be stated that the random variable is continuous. 22. For a
continuous distribution, P(X ≤ 10) is the same as P(X<10).
23. For...

Let X be a binomial random variable with p = 0.7
a) For n = 3, find P(X=1)
b) For n = 5, find P(X≤3)
