Question

An urn contains ten marbles, of which 4 are green, 3 are blue, and 3 are red. Three marbles are to be drawn from the urn, one at a time without replacement.

(a) Let ?? be the event that the ?th marble drawn is green. Find ?(?1 ∩ ?2 ∩ ?3), which is the probability that all three marbles drawn are green. Hint: Use the Multiplicative Law of Probability

(b) Now let ?? be the random variable defined to be the number of green marbles drawn. Explain why ?? must be hypergeometric, give the values of the parameters (?, ?, ?), and use the hypergeometric pmf to find ?(? = 3), which should agree with the probability found in (a).

(c) Give the expected value and variance of ?.

Answer #1

**(a)**

Total marbles =10

Green marbles =4

?(?1 ∩ ?2 ∩ ?3) =(4/10)(3/9)(2/8) =24/720
=**0.0333**

**(b)**

The random variable 'Y=y' is a Hypergeometric Distribution
because - A sample of size of "n" is randomly selected
**without** **replacement** from a
population of size "N" in which "r" items are treated as successes
and "N - r" items are treated as failures and y =number of
successes in the sample of size "n".

Here, Success =Green marble

The parameters are: N =Total number of marbles =10; n =number of marbles drawn =3; r =number of Green marbles =4

Formula: P(Y =y) =C(r, y)*C(N-r, n-y)/C(N, n)

P(Y =3) =C(4, 3)*C(10-4, 3-3)/C(10, 3) =4(1)/120
=**0.0333**

Thus, the probabilities found in (a) and (b) are same, i.e., agreed with each other.

**(c)**

Expected value of Y = n.r/N =3(4)/10 =12/10
=**1.2**

Variance of Y =(n.r/N)[(N-r)/N][(N-n)/(N-1)] =1.2[6/10][7/9]
=50.4/90 =**0.56**

An urn contains 4 marbles, either blue or green. The
number of blue marbles is equally likely to be 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4.
Suppose we do 3 random draws with replacement, and the observed
sequence is: blue, green, blue. What is the probability the urn
contains just 1 blue marble?

should enter 0.667.)

Urn 1 contains 8 red and 6 Blue marbles and Urn 2 contains 5 red
marbles and 4 blue marbles. A marble is randomly selected from Urn
1 and Placed in Urn 2. A marble is then drawn from Urn 2
a. What is the probability that the marble drawn from Urn 2 is
red?
b. What is the conditional probability that the ball drawn from
Urn 1 is red, given that a blue marble is drawn from Urn 2?

Two marbles are randomly drawn in succession
without replacement. Determine the probability
that both marbles are red.

There are two urns. The first urn has three red, one blue and
four yellow marbles. The second urn has two red, four blue and two
yellow marbles. If you draw one marble from each urn, what are the
probabilities of the following events?
What is the chance of getting two blue marbles?
What is the chance of getting no blue marbles?
What is the chance of getting at least one yellow marble?
What is the chance that the marbles...
