Probability of distribution of two random variables

From probability... Distributions of two random variables. The Correlation Coefficient.

1. A certain species of plant produces a flower that is either red, pink, white or on rare occasions blue. Form an analysis of the plants genes it is possible to calculate the the probability of a red flower is , the probability of white is and the probability of a pink flower is . A gardener grow 20 of these plants and was pleasantly suprised to see 5 blue flowers, 10 red, 2 white and 2 pink. Calculated the probability of this event.

Please see the attached file for the complete solution.
Thanks for using BrainMass.

Solution. First of all, we can assume that the events that each plant will produce a blue flower, a red flower, a white flower, or a pink flower are independent.

Secondly, we need to find the number of ways that we partition these 20 plants into FOUR groups: the 1st group has 5 plants; the 2nd group has 10 plants; the 3rd group has 3 plants; and the 4th group has 2 plants. The total number of ways is equal to

Solution Summary

The probability of an event is found. The solution is detailed and well presented. The response received a rating of "5/5" from the student who originally posted the question.

Please choose the correct answer and write briefly why.
A property of continuous distributions is that:
a. As with discrete randomvariables, the probabilitydistribution can be approximated by a smooth curve
b. Probabilities for continuous variables can be approximated using discrete randomvariables
c. Unlike discret

The probabilitydistribution for the random variable x is as follows
x is 20 25 30 35
f(x) is .20 .15 .25 .40
a. Is this probabilitydistribution valid? Explain.
b. What is the probability that x=30?
c. What is the probability that x is less than or equal to 25?
d. What is the probability that x is greater than 30?

Prove the following:
a) Fxy(a,b) is non-decreasing (in a and b).
b) lim a->inf Fxy(a,b) = Fy(b)
c) Jointly continuous randomvariables X and Y are independent if and only if
fxy(x,y) = fx(x)*fy(y)
fxy(x,y) is the joint probability density function.
Fxy(a,b) is the joint cumulative

Two cards are drawn without replacement from a pack X measures hearts drawn and Y measures clubs drawn, both are randomvariables.
1. What is the joint probaility mass function of x and y. Explain
2. What are the marginal probability mass functions of x and y.

Let x determine a random variable, and user your knowledge of probability to prepare a probabilitydistribution.
