Question 24:

Consider the probability distribution of a random variable X:

Consider the Probability Distribution

Calculate (i)

(ii) Variance of X.




Question 25:

The probability distribution of a random variable X is given below:

The Probability Distribution

(i) Determine the value of .

(ii) Determine and

(iii) Find .





Question 26:

For the following probability distribution determine standard deviation of the random variable X.

The Probability Distribution


Question 27:

A biased die is such that and other scores being equally likely. The die is tossed twice. If X is the ‘number of fours seen’ , find the variance of the random variable X.



On tossing two die,



Thus, we get following table

Thus, We Get Following Table

Question 28:

A die is thrown three times. Let be ‘the number of twos seen’ . Find the expectation of .


We have,

So, on throwing a die three times, we will have .

We know that,

Question 29:

Two biased dice are thrown together. For the first die , the other scores being equally likely while for the second die, and the other scores are equally likely. Find the probability distribution of ‘the number of ones seen’ .


The Probability Distribution of ′ the Number of Ones Seen
