Question

You roll a six-sided die repeatedly until you roll a one. Let X be the random number of times you roll the dice. Find the following expectation:

E[(1/2)^X]

Answer #1

X is the number of times a six sided die is rolled until we get a one. Therefore the distribution for X here is obtained as:

P(X = 1) = 1/6

P(X = 2) = (5/6)*(1/6)

P(X = x) = (5/6)^{x-1}*(1/6)

The expected value of (1/2)^{x} is computed here as:

Applying the sum of an infinite geometric progression, we get here:

**Therefore 0.1429 is the required expected value
here.**

You roll a pair of fair dice repeatedly. Let X denote the number
of rolls until you get two consecutive sums of 8(roll two 8 in a
row). Find E[X]

A fair die is rolled repeatedly. Let X be the random variable
for the number of times a fair die is rolled before a six appears.
Find E[X].

You flip a fair coin. If the coin lands heads, you roll a fair
six-sided die 100 times. If the coin lands tails, you roll the die
101 times. Let X be 1 if the coin lands heads and 0 if the coin
lands tails. Let Y be the total number of times that you roll a 6.
Find P (X=1|Y =15) /P (X=0|Y =15) .

Roll two six sided dice. Let Y be the random variable the
represents the product of the two dice.
Define W = 4Y + 2 and find E(W).

a fair die was rolled repeatedly.
a) Let X denote the number of rolls until you get at least 3
different results. Find E(X) without calculating the distribution
of X.
b) Let S denote the number of rolls until you get a repeated
result. Find E(S).

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).

You roll one red die and one green die. Define the random
variables X and Y as follows: X = the absolute value of difference
of the number on the red die and the number on the green die. Y =
the sum of the number of dice that show the number 1.
For example, if the red and green dice show the numbers 3 and 6,
then X=3 and Y =0.
(a) Make a table showing the joint probability...

Roll a die and let its outcome be the random variable X. Let Y
be the random variable of “sum of X many dice rolled”. So, if X is
3, then we roll 3 dice and add the faces together to find Y .
(a) Are X and Y independent? Explain.
(b) Compute E[Y]

You roll two six-sided fair dice. a. Let A be the event that the
first die is even and the second is a 2, 3, 4 or 5. P(A) = Round
your answer to four decimal places. b. Let B be the event that the
sum of the two dice is a 7. P(B) = Round your answer to four
decimal places. c. Are A and B mutually exclusive events? No, they
are not Mutually Exclusive Yes, they are Mutually...
