1. A perfectly balanced coin is tossed n times. Find the probability that there is

at least one head.

2. Assume that people's birthdays are equally likely to occur among the 365

days of the year. (Here we ignore leap years and the fact that birth rates are

not exactly uniform over the year.) Find the probability p that no two people

in a group of n people will have a common birthday.

3. The mathematics department consists of 25 full professors, 15 associate

professors, and 35 assistant professors. A committee of 6 is selected at

random from the faculty of the department. Find the probability that all the

members of the committee are assistant professors.

4. Consider a poker hand of five cards. Find the probability of getting: four of a

kind (i.e. , four cards of the same face value) assuming the five cards are

chosen at random.

5. Suppose n balls are distributed into n boxes so that all of the nn possible

arrangements are equally likely. Compute the probability that only box 1 is

empty.

6. A poker hand has five cards drawn from an ordinary deck of 52 cards. Find

the probability that the poker hand has exactly 2 kings.

7. A deck of playing cards has 4 suits of 1 3 cards each, namely clubs,

diamonds, hearts, and spades.

(a) What is the probability that in a hand of 5 cards exactly 3 are clubs?

(b) What is the probability that in a hand of 5 cards exactly 3 are of the same suit?

8. In a poker hand what is the probability of getting exactly two pairs? Here, a

hand such as (2, 2, 2, 2, x) does not count as two pairs but as a 4-of-a-kind.

9. Suppose we have a box containing r balls numbered 1 , 2, . . . , r. A random

sample of size n is drawn without replacement and the numbers on the balls

noted. These balls are then returned to the box, and a second random sample

of size m is then drawn without replacement. Find the probability that the

two samples had exactly k balls in common.

10.In the committee problem discussed earlier, find the probability that the

committee of 6 is composed of 2 full professors, 3 associate professors, and

1 assistant professor.

11.Suppose, a box contains 40 envelopes of which 25 are ordinary (i.e. not

meant for airmail) and 16 are unstamped while the number of unstamped

ordinary envelops is 10. What is the probability that an envelope chosen

from the box at random is a stamped airmail envelope?

12.What is the probability that if a family of 2 kids has a boy, the other is a girl?

13.In the application of insecticide on mosquitoes, it is found that 80% are

killed in the initial application. 40% of the survivors of the 1st application

would succumb to the 2nd application, 20% of those who survive after 2nd

application will succumb to 3rd and so on. What is the probability that:

(a) A mosquito chosen at random will survive all the four application?

(b) Given that a mosquito has survived the first application, what is the

probability that it will survive all the four application?

14.A test for a certain disease is assumed to be correct 95% of the time: if a

person has the disease, the tests are positive with probability 0.95 and if the

person does not have the disease, the test results are negative with

probability 0.95. A random person drawn from a certain population has

probability 0.001of having the disease. Given that a person just tested

positive, what is the probability of having the disease?

15.Suppose a boy either walks to school or he goes to school by bus. If the boy

goes to school by bus on a certain day, the probability that next day also he

goes by bus is 7/10. If the boy walks to school on a certain day, the

probability that he walks to school the next day is 3/5.

(a) Given that on Tuesday of a particular week the boy walks to school,

what is the probability that he goes to school on Thursday of the same

week by bus?

(b) Given that he walks to school on both Tuesday and Thursday of a

week, what is the probability that he also walks to school on

Wednesday of the week?
