Question

For a certain soccer team, the time between scoring goals follows an exponential distribution with a mean of 20 minutes. Suppose a game starts at 1:00 p.m. Assume the game is played for 90 minutes without breaks.

(a) What is the probability that the team scores no goals during the Örst 30 minutes?

(b) What is the probability that the team will score its Örst goal between 30 and 60 minutes?

(c) Suppose that no goals are scored before 2:00 p.m.. What is the probability that the teams scores before 2:30 p.m.?

Answer #1

here for exponential distribution parameter β = 20 minutes |

a)

probability that the team scores no goals during the first 30 minutes:

P(X>30)=1-P(X<30)=1-(1-exp(-30/20))= |
0.2231 |

b)

probability that the team will score its first goal between 30 and 60 minutes:

P(30<X<60)=(1-exp(-60/20)-(1-exp(-30/20))= |
0.1733 |

c)

probability that the teams scores before 2:30 p.m given no goal till 2:00

=P( at least one goal in 30 minutes between 2:00 p.m and 2:30 pm)

P(X<30)=1-exp(-30/20)= |
0.7769 |

Assume that the probability that team A score a goal in a
certain game is 0.7, the probability that team B score a goal in
the game is 0.3, and the probability that both teams score a goal
is 0.1. What is the probability that at least one of these two
teams will win the game?
Assume that the probability that team A score a goal in a
certain game is 0.7, the probability that team B score a goal...

The probability distribution for the number of goals scored per
match by the soccer team Melchester Rovers is believed to follow a
Poisson distribution with mean 0.80. Independently, the number of
goals scored by the Rochester Rockets is believed to follow a
Poisson distribution with mean 1.60. You are planning on placing a
bet on the total number of goals scored by the two teams in their
next games.
Part a)
What is the variance of the total number of...

University of Michigan researchers B. Wilkinson, N. Diedrich and
E. Rothman, and C. Drummond of Indiana-Purdue University in Fort
Wayne studied the duration between goals scored by the University
of Michigan hockey team its 40 game, 1996 championship season. They
found that the time between scores could be characterized with an
exponential distribution with λ = 0.10.
a. Find the mean and standard deviation for this
distribution,
b. Michigan has just scored. What is the probability that
It will be...

A professional soccer player succeeds in scoring a goal on 84%
of his penalty kicks. Assume that the success of each kick is
independent.
(a) In a series of games, what is the probability that the first
time he fails to score a goal is on his fifth penalty kick?
(b) What is the probability that he scores on 5 or fewer of his
next 10 penalty kicks?
(c) Suppose that our soccer player is out of action with an...

Suppose that the time between successive occurrences of an event
follows an exponential distribution with mean number of occurrences
per minute given by λ = 5. Assume that an event occurs. (A) Derive
the probability that more than 2 minutes elapses before the
occurrence of the next event. Derive the probability that more than
4 minutes elapses before the occurrence of the next event. (B) Use
to previous results to show: Given that 2 minutes have already
elapsed, what is...

1. Random Variable: The variable X represents the number of
goals scored by the soccer team Liverpool FC during all
competitions of the 2018- 2019 season.
X: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
P(X): 0.13, 0.25, 0.23, 0.17, 0.17, 0.05
a. Does the above table represent a probability distribution for
the variable X? Explain.
b. Calculate the mean value for the variable X.
c. What is the probability that they score 2 or more goals for a
given game during...
