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

Here are questions 33 and 34 to assist in answering question 52.
33) Let X be a random variable with probability density
f(x)={c(1-x^2), -1distribution function of X?
34) Let the probability

38. Suppose x is a binomial random variable with n = 3 and p = 3
a. calculate the value of p(x), x = 0,1,2,3 using the formula for a binomial probabilitydistribution
b. using your answers to part a, give the probabilitydistribution for x in tabular form
42. The binomial probabilitydistribution is a family of proba

I've struggled for 3 days to come up with something approaching a relevant answer but am now desperate.
Could you solve Q3, both a) and b) parts from the Exercise Sheet attached?
Happy to pay 2 credits for both answers.
Thank you very much.
3. The random variable X has an exponential distribution with mean ยต. Let Y

Suppose Babsie generated the following probabilitydistribution:
X p(x)
5 .25
7 .30
10 .25
12 .05
15 .15
a. Is this probabilitydistribution discrete or continuous? Explain your reasoning.
b. Calculate the expected value of X. Show your work!!
c. Calculate the variance of X. Show your work!!!
d. Calcu

A sum of $50,000 is invested at a rate R, selected from a uniform distribution on the interval (0.03, 0.07). Once R is selected, the sum is compounded instantaneously for a year so that X= 50000 e^R dollars is the amount at the end of that year.
a) Find the distribution function and the p.d.f. of X.
b) Verify that X = 500

I need some help learning how to apply the normal approximation in this question:
Suppose that Yn for NB(n,p). Give a normal approximation for P(Ynrandom variables. Use the negative binomial distribution (see attached file for better formula repres
