Question

We have three urns: the first urn has 6 red balls and 4 green balls; the second urn has 15 red balls and 5 green balls and the third urn has 20 red balls and 10 green balls. We pick 4 balls from the first urn (sampling with replacement); we select 5 balls from the second urn (sampling with replacement) and we select 10 balls from the third urn (sampling with replacement). Let X1 denote the number of red balls which are obtained from the first urn; let X2 denote the number of red balls which are obtained from the second urn and let X3 denote the number of red balls which are obtained from the third urn.

a) Find the expected value and variance of X1.

b) Find the expected value and the variance of X2.

c) Find the expected value and the variance X3.

d) Find the expected value of the total number of balls which are obtained from the 3 urns.

e) FInd the variance of the total number of red balls which are obtained form teh 3 urns.

f) If we define the "payoff" to be 5 times the total number of red balls from the three urns, then what is the expeted value of the payoff?

g) Referring to the preceeding exercise, what is the standard deviation of the payoff?

Answer #1

a)

Total number of balls: 6+4=10

Since sampling are done with replacement so probability of getting red ball in each draw is

p = 4 / 10 =0.40

Here X1 has binomial distribution with parameters n=4 and p=0.40.

The expected value and variance is:

E(X1) = np = 4 * 0.40 = 1.6

Var(X1) = np(1-p) = 4 *0.40 * 0.60 = 0.96

b)

Total number of balls: 15+5 =20

Since sampling are done with replacement so probability of getting red ball in each draw is

p = 15 / 20 =0.75

Here X2 has binomial distribution with parameters n=5 and p=0.75.

The expected value and variance is:

E(X2) = np = 5 * 0.75 =3.75

Var(X2) = np(1-p) = 5*0.75 * 0.25 = 0.9375

c)

Total number of balls: 20+10=30

Since sampling are done with replacement so probability of getting red ball in each draw is

p = 20 / 30 = 2/3

Here X3 has binomial distribution with parameters n=10 and p=2/3.

The expected value and variance is:

E(X3) = np = 10 * (2/3) =6.667

Var(X3) = np(1-p) = 10 * 2/3 * 1/3 = 2.222

d)

Let T shows the total number of red balls. The expected value of the total number of balls which are obtained from the 3 urns is

E(T) = E(X1)+ E(X2)+ E(X3) = 1.6+3.75 + 6.667 = 12.017

e)

Var(T) =Var(X1)+Var(X2)+Var(X3) = 0.96 + 0.9375 + 2.222 = 4.1195

f)

Let P shows the pay off. So,

E(P) = E(5T)= 5E(T) = 5 * 12.017 = 60.085

g)

The standard deviation of the payoff is

We have two urns: Urn A contains 6 red balls and 4 white balls,
Urn B contains 4 red balls and 8 white balls. A die is rolled, if a
number less than 3 appears; we go to box A; if the result is 3 or
more, we go to ballot box B. Then we extract a ball. It is
requested:
to. Probability that the ball is red and ballot box B.
b. Probability that the ball is white.

An urn contains 4 red balls and 3 green balls. Two balls are
sampled randomly.
Let Z denote the number of green balls in the sample when the
draws are done without replacement. Give the possible value of Z
and its probability mass function (PMF).

Urn A contains 6 green and 4 red balls, and Urn B contains 3
green and 7 red balls. One ball is drawn from Urn A and transferred
to Urn B. Then one ball is drawn from Urn B and transferred to Urn
A. Let X = the number of green balls in Urn A after this process.
List the possible values for X and then find the entire probability
distribution for X.

An urn contains 4 red balls and 6 green balls. Three balls are
chosen randomly from the urn, without replacement. (a) What is the
probability that all three balls are red? (Round your answer to
four decimal places.) (b) Suppose that you win $50 for each red
ball drawn and you lose $25 for each green ball drawn. Compute the
expected value of your winnings.

2. Urn A contains 6 green and 4 red balls, and Urn B contains 3
green and 7 red balls. One ball is drawn from Urn A and transferred
to Urn B. Then one ball is drawn from Urn B and transferred to Urn
A. Let X = the number of green balls in Urn A after this process.
List the possible values for X and then find the entire probability
distribution for X.

Urn A has 1 red and 2 black balls. Urn B has 2 red and 1 black
ball. It is common knowledge that nature chooses both urns with
equal probability, so P(A)=0.5 and P(B)=0.5. A sequence of six
balls is drawn with replacement from one of the urns. Experimental
subjects do not know which urn the balls are drawn from. Let x
denote the number of red balls that come up in the sample of 6
balls, x=0,1,2,...,6. Suppose that...

An urn contains 1 white, 2 black, 3 red, and 4 green balls. If 6
balls are selected randomly (without replacement) and X represents
the number of selections that are either red or green, find: (a)
the probability mass function for X. (b) the expected value of X
(calculate this value directly by using the probability mass
function from part a).

From an urn containing 9 red balls and 6 green balls,
4 balls are taken without replacement. Determine the probability
that all 4 ball are green
Give the probability if the same experiment is
preformed with replacement and the same outcome is obtained

Urn A contains 5 green and 4 red balls, and Urn B contains 3
green and 6 red balls. One ball is drawn from Urn A and transferred
to Urn B. Then one ball is drawn from Urn B and transferred to Urn
A. Let X = the number of green balls in Urn A after this process.
List the possible values for X and then find the entire probability
distribution for X.
