a) What is the probability that the number of busses you miss is equal to the expected value of the

number of busses you miss?

b) Upon you miss a buss you take a taxi and pay 10 TL or 12 TL with probabilities 0.3 and 0.7,

respectively. Find the mean and variance of the money you pay to taxies in a year.

c) Suppose you don’t know the probability p of missing a bus. You miss the bus 13 times during

the year. You estimate p by the sample mean, pˆ . What are the mean and variance of the sample

mean?
