Question

A coin is tossed five times. Let X = the number of heads. Find P(X = 3).

Answer #1

Here, We Use **Binomial Distribution**

Therefore,.

The probability mass function of the binomial distribution is as follows:

.............................X = 0,1,2,3.........................n

Let X denote the "Number of Head Obtained"

We know that,

p = P(head obtained) = 1/2

Therefore,

q = 1-p = 1 - 1/2 = 1/2

The Random variable takes the value X = 0,1,2,3,4,5 and n = 5

Now, We find Out P(X = 3)

P(X = 3) =

**P(X = 3) = 0.3125**

A fair coin has been tossed four times. Let X be the number of
heads minus the number of tails (out of four tosses). Find the
probability mass function of X. Sketch the graph of the probability
mass function and the distribution function, Find E[X] and
Var(X).

A coin is tossed 4 times. Let X be the number of times the coin
lands heads side up in those 4 tosses.
Give all the value(s) of the random variable, X. List them
separated commas if there is more than one.
X =

A fair coin is tossed three times. Let X be the number of heads
among the first two tosses and Y be the number of heads among the
last two tosses. What is the joint probability mass function of X
and Y? What are the marginal probability mass function of X and Y
i.e. p_X (x)and p_Y (y)? Find E(X) and E(Y). What is Cov(X,Y) What
is Corr (X,Y) Are X and Y independent? Explain. Find the
conditional probability mass...

A balanced coin is tossed 3 times, and among the 3 coin tosses,

(a) A fair coin is tossed five times. Let E be the event that an
odd number of tails occurs, and let F be the event that the first
toss is tails. Are E and F independent?
(b) A fair coin is tossed twice. Let E be the event that the
first toss is heads, let F be the event that the second toss is
tails, and let G be the event that the tosses result in exactly one
heads...

PROBLEM 4. Toss a fair coin 5 times, and let X be the number of
Heads. Find P ( X=4 | X>= 4 ).

A coin is tossed 5 times. Let the random variable ? be the
difference between the number of heads and the number of tails in
the 5 tosses of a coin. Assume ?[heads] = ?.
Find the range of ?, i.e., ??.
Let ? be the number of heads in the 5 tosses, what is the
relationship between ? and ?, i.e., express ? as a function of
??
Find the pmf of ?.
Find ?[?].
Find VAR[?].

A fair coin is flipped 400 times. Let X be the number of heads
resulting, find P[190<= X <= 200]
a) About 34%
b) About 95%
c) About 68%
d) About 25%
e) About 50%

a coin is tossed 50 times and it lands on heads 28 times. Find
the experimental probability and the theoretical probability of the
coin landing on heads. Then, compare the experimental and
theoretical probabilities
