Y1 & Y2 denotes the proportions of time that employee I and II actually spent working on their assigned tasks during a workday. The joint density of Y1 & Y2 is given by:
f(y1,y2) = y1 + y2 , 0=

What is a probability distribution and its purpose?
Distinguish between discrete and continuous probabilitydistributions. Give an example of each.
What is randomness? Assume you have an Excel worksheet of the dimension, A1:E101. The first row contains data labels. How would you randomize the data file and to select a

Tim has two more problems to solve on his test, but he doesn't know how long it will take to finish them. He assigns mutually irrelevant normal distributions to the times, assigning a mean of 35 minutes to the first problem and 30 minutes to the second problem. He assigns a 95% chance that the first problem will take 35+-15 minu

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

I need help with some practice problems that were given to us, to help prepare for a quiz next week. Please provide detailed steps as to how you came by your answer (include any notes, calculations, or anything that may be pertinent to the solution).
As always, your help would be greatly appreciated!

Define probabilitydistributions. Describe two common probabilitydistributions.
Looking for a good original (yet cited) response to this definition. And if you can describe two common ones with an example for each that would be great.

1. There are five computers in an office. The probability of failure of a computer is 0.3. What is the probability that (a) there are 3 computers working, and (b) at least three computers working?
2. A computer service company is interested in the number of computers that fail. There are hundreds of computers in use in their
