### 2nd PUC Maths Probability NCERT Text Book Questions and Answers Ex 13.4

Question 1.

State which of the following are not the probability distributions of a random variable. Give reasons for your answer.

(i)

x | 0 | 1 | 2 |

P(X) | 0.4 | 0.4 | 0.2 |

Answer:

X | 0 | 1 | 2 | T |

P(X) | 4 | 4 | 2 | 1 |

(ii)

X | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

P(X) | 0.1 | 0.5 | 0.2 | -0.1 | 0.3 |

Answer:

X | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | T |

P(X) | .1 | .5 | .2 | -.1 | 1 |

It is not P.d as P(X) < 0 when x = 3

(iii)

Y | -1 | 0 | 1 |

P(Y) | 0.6 | 0.1 | 0.2 |

Answer:

Y | -1 | 0 | 1 | T |

P(Y) | .6 | .1 | .2 | .9 |

It is not P.d as ΣP(X) = .9 ≠1

(iv)

Z | 3 | 3 | 1 | 0 | -1 |

P(Z) | 0.3 | 0.2 | 0.4 | 0.1 | 0.05 |

Answer:

Z | 3 | 3 | 1 | 0 | T |

P(Z) | .3 | .2 | .4 | .1 | 1.05 |

It is not a P.d as ΣP(X) = 1.05 > 1

Question 2.

An urn contains 5 red and 2 black balls.Two balls are randomly drawn. Let X represent the number of black balls. What are the possible values of X ? Is X a random variable ?

Answer:

X can take the values 0, 1, 2 It is a Random variable because the experiment is a random experiment.

Question 3.

Let X represent the difference between the number of heads and the number of tails obtained when a coin is tossed 6 times. What are possible values of X?

Answer:

When m = 6, n = 0 ⇒ |m-n| = 6

m = 5,n = 1 |m-n| = 4

m = 4, n = 2 |m-nl=2

m = 3,n = 3 |m-n| = 0

m = 2, n = 4 |m-n|=2

m = 1,n = 5 |m-n| = 4

m = 0, n = 6 |m-n|=6

∴ hence X can take values 0, 2, 4, 6.

Question 4.

Find the probability distribution of

(i) number of heads in two tosses of a coin.

(ii) number of tails in the simultaneous tosses of three coins.

(iii) number of heads in four tosses of a coin.

Answer:

(i) When a coin is tossed twice, the number of heads may be 0, 1,2

Sample space {HH, HT, TH, TT}

(ii) When a coin is tossed thrice, the number of heads are 0, 1, 2, 3

Sample space {HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, ITT, TTH, THT, THH

(iii) When coin is tossed four times, the number of heads be 0, 1, 2, 3,4 Sample space {HHHH, HHHT, HHTH, HHTT, HTHT, HTHH, HTTH, TTTT, TTTH, HTTT, TTHT, TTHH, THTH, THTT, THHT, THHH]

Question 5.

Find the probability distribution of the number of successes in two tosses of a die, where a success is defined as

(i) number greater than 4

(ii) six appears on at least one die

Ans:

(i) Let the random variable be X no of successes then X can take the value 0,1,2.

(ii) Let X be random variable, then X can take values

O (no sixes) & 1 (at least 1 six)

P (x = 0) = P (no six)

= [1-P (getting a six)] x [1 – P (getting a six on single throw]

Question 6.

From a lot of 30 bulbs which include 6 defectives, a sample of 4 bulbs is drawn at random with’ replacement. Find the probability distribution of the number of defective bulbs.

Answer:

Let X denote the no. of defective bulbs P denote the probability of obtaining defective bulb

Question 7.

A coin is biased so that the head is 3 times as likely to occur as tail. If the coin is tossed twice, find the probability distribution of number of tails.

Answer:

Let X denote the number of tails in two tosses of a coin

∴ X can assain the values 0, 1,2

Let P be the probability getting head, q the tail

Question 8.

A random variable X has the following probability distribution:

X | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |

P(X) | 0 | k | 2k | 2k | 3k | k^{2} |
2k^{2} |
7k^{2}+k |

Determination

(i) K

(ii) P(X<3)

(iii) P(X>6)

(iv) P(0<X<3)

Answer:

Question 9.

The random variable X has a probability distribution P(X) of the following form, where k is some number:

\(P(X)=\left\{\begin{array}{ll}{k,} & {\text { if } \quad x=0} \\{2 k,} & {\text { if } x=1} \\{3 k,} & {\text { if } x=2} \\{0,} & {\text { otherwise }}\end{array}\right.\)

(a) Determine the value of k

(b) Find P (X < 2), P (X≤2), P (X≥2)

Answer:

(a) In P.d. Σ XP(X)= 1

6k = 1 ⇒ \(k=\frac{1}{6}\)

X can take the values 0, 1, 2, 3

Question 11.

Two dice are thrown simultaneously. If X denotes the number of sixes, find the expectation of X.

X can take the values 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Question 13.

Let X denote the sum of the numbers obtained when two fair dice are rolled. Find the variance and standard deviation of X.

Ans:

Let X denote the sum of the numbers obtained

∴ X can take the values 2, 3,4, 5,6,7, 8,9, 10, 11, 12
