Question

In the binomial probability distribution, let the number of
trials be n = 3, and let the probability of success be p = 0.3742.
Use a calculator to compute the following.

(a) The probability of two successes. (Round your answer to
three decimal places.)

(b) The probability of three successes. (Round your answer to
three decimal places.)

(c) The probability of two or three successes. (Round your
answer to three decimal places.)

Answer #1

Solution: Let X be the random variable following Binomial distribution, i.e., X ~ Bin(3,0.3742)

thus, the pmf of X is written as f(x) = (3Cx)*(0.3742)x(1-0.3742)3-x, x=0,1,2,3

where 3Cx = 3!/((3-x)! x!)

(a) The probability of two successes = P(X=2) =
(3C2)*(0.3742)2(1-0.3742)3-2
= **0.263**

(b) The probability of three successes = P(X=3) =
(3C3)*(0.3742)3(1-0.3742)3-3
= **0.052**

(c) The probability of two or three successes = P(X=2) + P(X=3)
= 0.263 + 0.052 = **0.315**

(all the answers are rounded to three decimal places)

Suppose we have a binomial distribution with n trials
and probability of success p. The random variable
r is the number of successes in the n trials, and
the random variable representing the proportion of successes is
p̂ = r/n.
(a) n = 44; p = 0.53; Compute P(0.30
≤ p̂ ≤ 0.45). (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
(b) n = 36; p = 0.29; Compute the probability
that p̂ will exceed 0.35. (Round your answer to four...
