hour. Let N(t) be the number of custoer arrivals up to time t, with hour as the unit. There are two types of soft drinks, type A and B, stored in the machine. Suppose that each time a customer deposits money, the machine dispenses one soft drink A with probability p1, or one soft drink B with probability p2. We have p1 + p2 = 1, p1 > 0, p2 > 0. Let X(t) be the number of type A soft drinks dispensed up to time t; and Y (t) be the number of type B soft drinks dispensed up to time t.

3.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.

4.Can domestic dogs understand human body cues such as leaning? The experimenter leaned toward one of two objects and recorded ...

two objects and recorded whether or not the dog being tested correctly chose the object indicated. A four-year-old male beagle named Augie participated in this study. He chose the correct object 42 out of 70 times when the experimenter leaned towards the correct object. (a) (2 points) Let the parameter of interest, π, represent the probability that the long-run probability that Augie chooses correctly. Researches are interested to see if Augie understands human body cues (better than gussing). Fill in the blanks for the null and alternative hypotheses. H0 : Ha : (b) (6 points) Based on the above context, conduct a test of significance to determine the p-value to investigate if domestic dogs understand human body cues. What conclusion will you draw with significance level of 10%? (If you use an applet, please specify which applet you use, and the inputs.) (c) (5 points) Based on the above context, conduct a test of significance to determine the p-value to investigate if domestic dogs understand human body cues. What conclusion will you draw with significance level of 5%? (If you use an applet, please specify which applet you use, and the inputs.) (d) (2 points) Are your conclusions from part (b) and (c) the same? If they are different, please provide an explanation. (e) (5 points) Shown below is a dotplot from a simulation of 100 sample proportions under the assump- tion that the long-run probability that Augie chooses correct is 0.50. Based on this dotplot, would a 90% confidence interval for π contain the value 0.5? Explain your answer. (f) (4 points) Compute the standard error of the sample proportion of times that Augie chose the object correctly. 1 (g) (5 points) (h) (3 points) question? (i) (4 points) (j) (4 points) A. B. C. Construct an approximate 95% confidence interval for π using the 2SD method. What is the margin of error of the confidence interval that you found in the previous How would you interpret the confidence interval that you found in part (g)? Which of the following is a correct interpretation of the 95% confidence level? If Augie repeats this process many times, then about 95% of the intervals produced will capture the true proportion of times of choosing the correct objective. About 95% times Augie chooses the correct objective. If Augie repeats this process and constructs 20 intervals from separate independent sam- ples, we can expect about 19 of those intervals to contain the true proportion Augie chooses the correct objective.

Conjecture how, if at all, the center and the width of a 99% confidence interval would change with these data, compared to the original 2SD 95% confidence interval.

(l) (4 points) Suppose that we repeated the same study with Augie, and this time he chose the correct object 17 out of 35 times, and we also change the confidence level from 95% to 99%. Conjecture how, if at all, the center and the width of a 99% confidence interval would change with these data, compared to the original 2SD 95% confidence interval.

nd standard deviation 6 inches. A button hyperlink to the SALT program that reads: Use SALT. (a) What is the probability that an 18-year-old man selected at random is between 64 and 66 inches tall? (Round your answer to four decimal places.) Correct: Your answer is correct. (b) If a random sample of seven 18-year-old men is selected, what is the probability that the mean height x is between 64 and 66 inches? (Round your answer to four decimal places.) Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect. (c) Compare your answers to parts (a) and (b). Is the probability in part (b) much higher? Why would you expect this? The probability in part (b) is much higher because the standard deviation is smaller for the x distribution. The probability in part (b) is much higher because the standard deviation is larger for the x distribution. The probability in part (b) is much higher because the mean is smaller for the x distribution. The probability in part (b) is much higher because the mean is larger for the x distribution. The probability in part (b) is much lower because the standard deviation is smaller for the x distribution.
