Question 10:

Determine variance and standard deviation of the number of heads in three tosses of a coin.

Answer:

Let X denote the number of heads tossed. So, can take the values . When a coin is tossed three times, we get

Sample space

Thus the probability distribution of is:

Variance of

Where μ is the mean of given by

Now

From (1) , (2) and (3) , we get

Standard deviation

Question 11:

Question 12:

A car manufacturing factory has two plants, X and Y. Plant X manufactures of cars and plant Y manufactures of the cars at plant X and of the cars at plant Y are rated of standard quality. A car is chosen at random and is found to be of standard quality. What is the probability that it has come from plant X?

Answer:

Let be the event that the car is of standard quality. Let and be the events that the car is manufactured in plants X and Y, respectively. Now

Probability that a standard quality car is manufactured in plant

Probability that a standard quality car has come from plant

Hence the required probability is
