2.Exercise 4) A fair coin is tossed. If it lands heads, a fair four-sided die is thrown (with values 2,3,4,7). If ...

2,3,4,7). If it lands tails, a fair six-sided die is thrown (with values 3,4,5,6,7,9). Regardless of which die is used, Alice eats n grains of rice, where n is the largest prime factor of the die result (for example, the largest prime factor of 9 is 3). (a) What is the conditional probability that the coin lands heads, given that Alice eats three grains of rice? (b) Suppose that the entire experiment is conducted twice on the following day (starting with a new coin toss on the second run-through). What is the conditional probability that the coin lands heads on both run-throughs, given that Alice eats a total of five grains of rice during the two run-throughs? (Do not count the two grains from part (a) in part (b); we assume two brand new experiments, each with a new coin toss. Start your solution by defining a suitable partition of the sample space. Please use an appropriate notation and/or justification in words, for each value that you give as part of your solution.) Exercise 5) Alice and Bob throw an unfair coin repeatedly, with probability 2/5 of landing heads. Alice starts with £2 and Bob starts with £3 . Each time the unfair coin lands heads, Alice gives Bob £1 . Each time the unfair coin lands tails, Bob gives Alice £1 . The game ends when one player has £5 . (a) Draw a labelled Markov chain describing the problem, and write down a transition matrix P. Write down the communication classes, and classify them as either recurrent or transient. (b) Using the transition matrix, calculate the probability that Alice loses all of her money in exactly four tosses of the unfair coin. (c) Calculate the (total) probability that Alice loses all of her money (before Bob loses all of his). (d) Calculate the expected (mean) number of tosses of the unfair coin, for the game to end.

3.We play a variation of Monty Hall: The contestant is presented with 3 curtains, behind each there's a prize with ...

a prize with probability p independently of the other curtains. The player chooses one curtain (a) The game host tells the contestant there's a prize hiding behind at least one of the other curtains, and offers the player a chance to change his choice. Should he? (b) The game host tells the player there's a prize hiding behind exactly one of the other curtains. Should the player change his choice? How does your answer depend on p (c) How would your answer to section (b) change if there are n curtains in total? (d) Bonus (4 points): How would your answer to section (a) change if there are 4 curtains in total?

5.Fox News recently reported the results of a public opinion poll on supporting Trump that asked: “Since he became the president, ...

Since he became the president, did President Trump act with the transparency and the integrity that you expect from a president?” 675 voters responded the poll and 351 responded “YES.” Assume that 40% of the U.S. population supports Trump. a. Define a binary random variable, Y, for supporting Trump (Y=1) vs. not (Y=0). Calculate the population mean (????????) and variance (???????? 2 ) for supporting Trump. b. Calculate the sample mean ????̅ and the sample standard deviation of ????̅ (????????̅ ) for the poll. c. Calculate the standard error of ????̅ and construct a 95% confidence interval from the poll using ????̅ and its sample standard error. d. Conduct a two-sided hypothesis test at 5% significance level to determine whether 40% of the U.S. population supports Trump. State the null and the alternative hypotheses, calculate the test statistics and the associated p-value, and conclude. Is the Fox News survey reliable? Why? Why Not? e. Suppose that you wanted to design a survey that had a margin of error of at most 1%. That is: the difference between the upper bound and the lower bound of the confidence interval should be a maximum of 2 percentage points. For example, for ????̅ = 0.52 you are aiming for the 95 % CI to be [0.51 0.53]. How large should n be if the survey uses simple random sampling?

6.Suppose you measure a block’s weight by hanging it from a spring scale. You find that it weighs 34.0 N ...

34.0 N when it’s not in the water. When it’s submerged in water (the density of water is 1.00 x 103 kg/m3) the scale now reads 27.0 N. (a) What is the density of the block? (b) If you suspended another object from the block that has a density of 3.20 x 103 kg/m3, with both objects submerged, what would the object's mass need to be for the scale to once again read 34.0 N? Note: Part (a) is worth 7 points, and part (b) is worth 8 points.

ersity maths). I would like some assistance as soon as possible (in the next few hours), so if you are unavailable, I would love it if another tutor could help. These are the questions that are similar to, but are not exactly the ones I am struggling with. Solving these would give me a better chance of solving my assignment. I don't know where to begin with these: Provide a non-solvable finite group G with solvable subgroups L, K, M such that G = LK = LM, M \neq K , and show that it fits the criteria. ///// Define G, a finite p -group, such that G isn't abelian. Let K \le G such that |G:K| = p , where K is abelian. Prove that there are either 1 or p + 1 such abelian subgroups, and if there are p + 1 , then the index of Z(G) in G is p^2 ///// Define N normal subgroup, G finite group, O the intersection of all maximal subgroups of G . Prove that G = ON and N \cap O is nilpotent. ///// Define p a prime number, G a finite group, K a Sylow p -subgroup of G . Assume M \le K and g^{-1}Mg \le K , where g \in G . Prove that g = km for some k \in N_G(K) (normaliser of K in G ) and some m \in C_G(M) (centraliser of K in G)
