In a given day in the rainy season, it may rain$$70$$% of the time . If it rains, chance that a village fair will make a loss on that day is $$80$$%. ...
For a random variable $$\,x\left( { - \infty < x < \infty } \right)\,\,$$ following normal distribution, the mean is $$\,\mu = 100\,\,.$$ If ...
The random variable $$X$$ takes on the values $$1,$$ $$2$$ (or) $$3$$ with probabilities $$\,{{2 + 5P} \over 5},{{1 + 3P} \over 5}\,\,$$ and $$\,\,... Two dice are thrown simultaneously. The probability that the sum of numbers on both exceeds$$8$$is The life of a bulb (in hours) is a random variable with an exponential distribution$$\,\,f\left( t \right) = \alpha {e^{ - \alpha t}},0 \le t \le \in...
