Question

A box contains 7 items, 4 of which are defective. a random sample of 3 items are taken from the box. Let X be the number of defective items in the sample. 1.Find the probability mass function of X. 2.Find the mean and the variance of X.

Answer #1

here X follows hypergeometric distribution with parameter n=3 ; k=4 and N =7

probability mass function of X =P(X=x)=P(getting x defective from 4 and 3-x good items from 3)

**P(X=x)= ^{4}C_{x}*^{3}C_{3-x}/^{7}C_{3}**

**from above formula**

x | P(x) |

0 | 0.0286 |

1 | 0.3429 |

2 | 0.5143 |

3 | 0.1143 |

2)

x | P(x) | xP(x) |
x^{2}P(x) |

0 | 0.0286 | 0.000 | 0.000 |

1 | 0.3429 | 0.343 | 0.343 |

2 | 0.5143 | 1.029 | 2.057 |

3 | 0.1143 | 0.343 | 1.029 |

total | 1.714 | 3.429 | |

E(x) =μ= | ΣxP(x) = | 1.7143 | |

E(x^{2}) = |
Σx^{2}P(x) = |
3.4286 | |

Var(x)=σ^{2} = |
E(x^{2})-(E(x))^{2}= |
0.490 |

from above mean =1.7143 (this can directly be derived from formula nk/N =3*4/7=1.7143)

and variance =0.490 ( this can directly be derived from formula nk/N(1-k/N)*(N-n)/(N-1))

A shipment of part contains 3 defective items and 7
non-defective items. If we randomly select 4 items for inspection,
what is the probability that we obtain at most one defective item
in the sample? Assume sampling without replacement.

A lot contains 12 items and 4 are defective. If two items are
drawn at random from the lot, without replacement, what is the
probability there is exactly one defective?

A box contains 25 parts of which 3 are defective and 22
are non-defective. If two parts are selected WITH replacement, find
the following probabilities;
P (both are defective) =
P ( exactly one is defective) =
P ( neither is defective) =

Suppose a lot of 10,000 items has 200 defective items and that a
random sample of 30 is drawn from the lot. What is the probability
(to four decimal places) of getting exactly 1 defective in the
sample?

A box contains 5 chips marked 1,2,3,4, and 5. One chip is drawn
at random, the number on it is noted, and the chip is replaced. The
process is repeated with another chip. Let X1,X2, and X3 the
outcomes of the three draws which can be viewed as a random sample
of size 3 from a uniform distribution on integers. a [10 points]
What is population from which these random samples are drawn? Find
the mean (µ) and variance of...

A box contains 4 defective and 2 good parts.
Two parts are selected from the box (without replacement), and it
is recorded whether the
selected part is defective or good.
The probability that the first selected part is defective and the
second selected part is good is
__________
The probability that exactly one good part is selected
is__________________
The probability that at least one defective part is selected is

Question 1: Suppose that of 6,000 electrical fuses, 5% are
defective. Also, suppose that a random sample of 10 fuses is
selected and consider the random variable X representing the number
of defective fuses in the sample. (a) Explain why a binomial
distribution is appropriate. (b) What is the probability that at
least one of the fuses is defective? (c) What is the probability
that fewer than 3 fuses are defective?
Question 2: Refer to the setup in Question 1....

A batch of 125 lightbulbs contains 13 that are defective. If
you choose 8 at random
(without replacement), what is the probability that
(a) None are defective?
(b) Exactly one is defective?
(c) More than 2 are defective?
whats needed
1) Define a random variable in words. (e.g. X = number of
heads observed)
2) Specify the distribution of the random variable including
identifying the value(s) of any
parameter(s). (e.g. X ∼ Binomial(10, 5))
3) State the desired probability in...

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...

QUESTION 5- A factory produces pins of which 1.5% are
defective. The components are packed in boxes of 12. A box is
selected at random.
(1) n =
(2) p = (Round to four decimal places)
(3) q = (Round to four decimal places)
Find the following probabilities (Round ALL answers to four
decimal places):
4) The box contains exactly 6 defective pins
