I will do 3 first, will be back for (6) and (7) after dinner if no other posters have replied.

For (3), since the puzzle on Monday has been solved, he is only left with 4 puzzles to solve. This is a case of a binomial distribution.

X~B(4 , 3/4)

Then calculate P(X>=3) - Oct 13th 2010, 06:11 AMmathaddict

Set up a probability distribution table, with Y=0,1,2,3,>3. Calculate their respective probabilities. Then E(x) and Var(x) will follow.

Next, find the mode of the distribution. This is similar to the question asked in your previous post.

#7

X~P(3)

Calculate P(X=0) - Oct 13th 2010, 07:04 PMcloud5
