4.1 Homework (modified r. bloom)

 Page 1 / 6
This module provides a number of homework exercises related to Discrete Random Variables. The module is based on the original module in the textbook collection Collaborative Statistics by Susan Dean and Dr. Barbara Illowsky and has been modified. New problems (#38 to #43) have been added.

1. Complete the PDF and answer the questions.

 $X$ $P\left(X=x\right)$ $X\cdot P\left(X=x\right)$ 0 0.3 1 0.2 2 3 0.4

• A

A theater group holds a fund-raiser. It sells 100 raffle tickets for $5 apiece. Suppose you purchase 4 tickets. The prize is 2 passes to a Broadway show, worth a total of$150.

• A

What are you interested in here?
• B

In words, define the Random Variable $X$ .
• C

List the values that $X$ may take on.
• D

Construct a PDF.
• E

If this fund-raiser is repeated often and you always purchase 4 tickets, what would be your expected average winnings per game?

Suppose that 20,000 married adults in the United States were randomly surveyed as to the number of children they have. The results are compiled and are used as theoretical probabilities. Let $X$ = the number of children

 $X$ $P\left(X=x\right)$ $X\cdot P\left(X=x\right)$ 0 0.10 1 0.20 2 0.30 3 4 0.10 5 0.05 6 (or more) 0.05

• A

Find the probability that a married adult has 3 children.
• B

In words, what does the expected value in this example represent?
• C

Find the expected value.
• D

Is it more likely that a married adult will have 2 – 3 children or 4 – 6 children? How do you know?

0.2

2.35
• D

2-3 children

Suppose that the PDF for the number of years it takes to earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree is given below.

 $X$ $P\left(X=x\right)$ 3 0.05 4 0.40 5 0.30 6 0.15 7 0.10

• A

In words, define the Random Variable $X$ .
• B

What does it mean that the values 0, 1, and 2 are not included for $X$ on the PDF?
• C

On average, how many years do you expect it to take for an individual to earn a B.S.?

how can chip be made from sand
are nano particles real
yeah
Joseph
Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
learn
da
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts
Bhagvanji
hey
Giriraj
Preparation and Applications of Nanomaterial for Drug Delivery
revolt
da
Application of nanotechnology in medicine
has a lot of application modern world
Kamaluddeen
yes
narayan
what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
Rafiq
what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery
Hafiz
what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
