Question

1. Suppose you have a fair 6-sided die with the numbers 1 through 6 on the sides and a fair 5-sided die with the numbers 1 through 5 on the sides. What is the probability that a roll of the six-sided die will produce a value larger than the roll of the five-sided die?

2. What is the expected number of rolls until a fair five-sided die rolls a 3? Justify your answer briefly.

Answer #1

1)

P( roll of the six-sided die will produce a value larger than the roll of the five-sided die)

=P(1 on 5 sided die and 2 or more on 6 sided die)+P(2 on 5 sided die and 3 or more on 6 sided die)+P(3 on 5 sided die and 4 or more on 6 sided die)+P(4 on 5 sided die and 5 or more on 6 sided die)+P(5 on 5 sided die and 6 on 6 sided die)

=(1/5)*(5/6)+(1/5)*(4/6)+(1/5)*(3/6)+(1/5)*(2/6)+(1/5)*(1/6)=15/30 =1/2

2)

since probability of rolling a 3 on a five-sided die p=1/5 is fixed and independent from trail to trail.

therefore number of rolls until a fair five-sided die rolls a 3 follows geometric distribution, with parameter p=1/5

expected number of rolls until a fair five-sided die rolls a 3
=1/p=1/(1/5) =**5**

An ordinary (fair) die is a cube with the numbers 1 through 6 on
the sides (represented by painted spots). Imagine that such a die
is rolled twice in succession and that the face values of the two
rolls are added together. This sum is recorded as the outcome of a
single trial of a random experiment. Compute the probability of
each of the following events:
Event A: The sum is greater than 8.
Event B: The sum is an...

Roll a fair 6-sided die repeatedly and letY1,Y2,...be the
resulting numbers. Let Xn=|{Y1,Y2,...,Yn}|be the number of values
we have seen in the first n rolls for n≥1 and setX0= 0.Xn is a
Markov chain.(a) Find its transition probability.(b) Let T=
min{n:Xn= 6}be the number of trials we need to see all 6 numbers at
least once. Find E[T]. Please explain how/why

[10 pts.] You keep rolling a fair 6-sided die as long as no
value is repeated. When you see the ﬁrst repeated value, that is
your last roll. Let X be the number of rolls it took. Find P(X = k)
for all k.
You must justify every single step to get to the answer, or no
credit will be awarded.

Suppose you plan to roll a fair six-sided die two times. What is
the probability of rolling a ‘1’ both times?

PROBLEM #2
Suppose you play a game in which a fair 6 sided die is rolled
once. If the outcome of the roll (the number of dots on the side
facing upward) is less than or equal to 4, you are paid as many
dollars as the number you have rolled. Otherwise, you lose as many
dollars as the number you have rolled.
Let X be the profit from the game (or the amount of money won or
lost per...

1) Let ? be the number that shows up when you roll a fair,
six-sided die, and, let ? = ?^2 − 5? + 6.
a. Find both formats for the distribution of ??. (Hint: tep
forms of probability distributions
are CDF and pmf/pdf.)
b.. Find F(2.35).

1. You have a 4 sided die with sides marked A, B, C and D. You
roll the die 100 times. Find the probability that you get A at
least 92 % of the time.
2. Your friend also rolls the die from problem 1, 100 times. He
rolled more A’s than 70 % of all people who could roll this die 100
times. What percentage of the time did he roll and A???
