4.184: Consider the discrete probability distribution shown here.
x 10 12 18 20
p(x) .2 .3 .1 .4
4.186: Suppose x is a Poisson random variable. Compute p(x) for each of the following cases:
a) Lambda = 2, x = 3
b) Lambda = 1, x = 4
c) Lambda = 0.5, x = 2
Please see attached document for full solutions.
a) Yes, x is a binomial random variable. As the event a chip is defective is independent of each other, and the probability that each chip is defective is fixed. In ...
