EXERCISE 11.2

1. Three fair coins are tossed simultaneously. Find the probability mass function for number of heads occurred. 2. A six sided die is marked ‘1’ on one face, ‘3’ on two of its faces, and ‘5’ on remaining three faces. The die is thrown twice. If X denotes the total score in two throws, find

(i) the probability mass function (ii) the cumulative distribution function

(iii) P ( 4  X < 10) (iv) P ( X  6)   3. Find the probability mass function and cumulative distribution function of number of girl child in families with 4 children, assuming equal probabilities for boys and girls.  4. Suppose a discrete random variable can only take the values 0, 1, and 2.

The probability mass function is defined by Find (i) the value of k (ii) cumulative distribution function (iii) PX  1) . 5. The cumulative distribution function of a discrete random variable is given by Find (i) the probability mass function (iiPX < 1) and (iiiPX ≥ 2) . 6. A random variable x has the following probability mass function. Find (i) the value of (ii) P(2 X 5) (iii) P(3< X) 7. The cumulative distribution function of a discrete random variable is given by Find (i) the probability mass function (ii) PX < 3) and (iii) PX  2) .
