    3. (10 points) There are two children in one family. If any borne child is boy or girl is equal likely. Suppose

    A={ There is at least one boy in the family }

    B={If we know there is already one girl in the family, then there is exactly one boy and one girl in the family, }

    Determine the probability of event A,B

     Solution: PA()3/4


    4. (10 points) A transmitter is sending a message by using a binary code, namely, a sequence of 0s

    and 1s. Each transmitted bit (0 or 1) must pass through two relays to reach the receiver. At each relay, the probability is 0.20 that the bit sent will be different from the bit received (a reversal). Assume that the relays operate independently of one another.

    Transmitter?Relay 1?Relay 2?Receiver

    a. If a 1 is sent from the transmitter, what is the probability that a 1 is sent by both relays? b. If a 1 is sent from the transmitter, what is the probability that a 1 is received by the receiver? c. Suppose 70% of all bits sent from the transmitter are 1s. If a 1 received by the receiver, what is

    the probability that a 1 was sent?

    Solution: a. P???

    b. P??;??

    a. What is the probability that reaction time is at most 2.5 sec?

    b. Compute the expected reaction time.

    8. (10 points) A more extensive tabulation of t critical values than what appears in this book shows

    that for the t distribution with 20 df, the areas to the right of the values 0.687, 0.860, and 1.064 are

    0.25, 0.20, and 0.15, respectively. What is the confidence level for each of the following three

    confidence intervals for the mean of a normal population distribution? Which of the three (

    intervals would you recommend be used, and why? a. (0.687/21,1.725/21)xsxs;;

    b. (0.860/21,1.325/21)xsxs;;

    c. (1.064/21,1.064/21)xsxs;;

    Solution: Because , that is, the confidence ;??;?0.687(20),1.725(20),10.70ttSo0.250.05

    level of interval is 70%. (0.687/21,1.725/21)xsxs;;

    And other two confidence intervals have confidence level 70%.

    The width of is 2.412 (0.687/21,1.725/21)xsxs;;

    The width of is 2.185 (0.860/21,1.325/21)xsxs;;

    The width of is 2.128 (1.064/21,1.064/21)xsxs;;

    So I recommend the best interval is (1.064/21,1.064/21)xsxs;;

9. (10 points) A certain type of automobile is known to sustain no visible damage 25% of the

    time in 10-mph crash tests. A modified bumper design has been proposed in an effort to increase

    this percentage. Let p denote the proportion of all 10-mph crashes with this new bumper that result

    in no visible damage. The test will be based on a sample of n=20.

    a. What are the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses?

    b. Let X=the number of crashes with no visible damage, and rejection region R={}. Please X~88

    calculate the probability of a type ?error and the probability of a type ?error when p=0.3.

    Solution: a. H:p=0.25 H: p>0.25 0a

     b. =P(type I error)=P(H is rejected when it is true) 0
