Question 26:

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

The probability distribution

Answer:

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.

Answer:

Since,

On tossing two die,

Also,

So,

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 .

Answer:

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’.

Answer:

The probability distribution of ‘the number of ones seen
