    Question:A fair coin is flipped independently until the first Heads is observed. Let the random variable K be the number of tosses until the first Heads is observed plus 1. For example, if we see TTTHTH, then K=5. For K=1,2,3...K, let Xk be a continuous

    Yes. By definition, the mode is the number that occurs most frequently in the set. Therefore it has to be in the set.

    How many letters are there in the alphabet? 26 How many vowels are there in the alphabet? 5 Therefore, the probability of picking one vowel is 5/26. The probability of picking N vowels is (5/26)^N or 5/26 * 5/26 * 5/26.... (N times). So for your question,

    @Anonymous, E[((R+1)^1 - (R-1)^2)/100] = E[4R/100] =1/25 * E[R] = 1/25 * 3.5 = 0.14.

    1) The random circle can only intersect the circle of radius 5 if the centre of the random circle is at most 1 unit away from the circumference of the circle of radius 5. So basically we can draw two boundaries above and below the circle of radius 5. These

  8. Probability: Counting

    Oh I simply divide those two results I mentioned, but I am not sure why that works. Because can't, Anne and Billy, be placed in the committee in different ways? 10C3 / 12C5 makes it seem like the ways in which Billy and Anne can be arranged in the

  9. Probability: Counting

    Hi Scott. Hmm, I am still unsure what you mean by that. I guess the probability of choosing Anne, in particular, is 1/12, and then the probability of choosing Billy after that becomes 1/11. So maybe 1/12 * 1/11 * (10C3)/(12C5) ? I am quite confused.
