## Simple Probability and Statistics – A Quick Review

The probability of an event is given by –

The Number Of Ways Event A Can Occur The total number Of Possible Outcomes

First determine the possible number of outcomes, the sample space of this event will be:

S = { (H,1),(H,2),(H,3),(H,4),(H,5),(H,6) (T,1),(T,2),(T,3),(T,4),(T,5),(T,6) }

= 8/12 = 2/3. In 20 games the probability of a win = 2/3 × 20 = 13

## Basic Probability and Statistics Practice Questions

a. 2/11 b. 19/22 c. 20/121 d. 9/11

4. How many different ways can a reader choose 3 books out of 4, ignoring the order of selection?

a. 3/64 b. 1/16 c. 3/16 d. 1/4

a. 10/102 b. 11/102 c. 1/29 d. 1/30

## Basic Probability and Statistics Answer Key

Overall probability is: 3/56 + 3/56 = 3/28

So, the probability will be 10/14 = 5/7.

C(4, 3) = 4! / (3! * (4 – 3)!) = 4! / (3! * 1!) = 4

Die: 4 coin: HHHH : 1 permutation P = (1/6) * (1/2) * (1/2) * (1/2) * (1/2) = (1/6) * (1/16)

## 8. An MP3 player is set to play songs at random from the fifteen songs it contains in memory. Any song can be played at any time, even if it is repeated. There are 5 songs by Band A, 3 songs by Band B, 2 by Band C, and 5 by Band D. If the player has just played two songs in a row by Band D, what is the probability that the next song will also be by Band D?

## 9. Referring again to the MP3 player described in Question 8, what is the probability that the next two songs will both be by Band B?

## Probability Questions

The probability of happening of an event E is a number P(E) such that:

Probability Formula: If an event E occurs, then the empirical probability of an event to happen is:

P(E) = Number of trials in which Event happened/Total number of trials

The theoretical probability of an event E, P(E), is defined as:

P(E) = (Number of outcomes favourable to E)/(Number of all possible outcomes of the experiment)

## Probability Questions & Answers

1. Two coins are tossed 500 times, and we get:

Find the probability of each event to occur.

The Sum of probabilities of all elementary events of a random experiment is 1.

P(E 1 )+P(E 2 )+P(E 3 ) = 0.21+0.55+0.24 = 1

If a tyre is bought from this company, what is the probability that :

(i) it has to be substituted before 4000 km is covered?

(ii) it will last more than 9000 km?

(iii) it has to be replaced after 4000 km and 14000 km is covered by it?

Solution: (i) Total number of trials = 1000.

The frequency of a tyre required to be replaced before covering 4000 km = 20

(ii) The frequency that tyre will last more than 9000 km = 325 + 445 = 770

(iii) The frequency that tyre requires replacement between 4000 km and 14000 km = 210 + 325 = 535.

So, P(E 3 ) = 535/1000 = 0.535

3. The percentage of marks obtained by a student in the monthly tests are given below:

Based on the above table, find the probability of students getting more than 70% marks in a test.

Solution: The total number of tests conducted is 5.

The number of tests when students obtained more than 70% marks = 3.

So, P(scoring more than 70% marks) = ⅗ = 0.6

Solution: Well-shuffling ensures equally likely outcomes.

(i) There are 4 aces in a deck.

Let E be the event the card drawn is ace.

The number of favourable outcomes to the event E = 4

The number of possible outcomes = 52

(ii) Let F is the event of ‘card is not an ace’

The number of favourable outcomes to F = 52 – 4 = 48

Therefore, P(F) = 48/52 = 12/13

The probability of Sangeet to win = P(S) = 0.62

The probability of Rashmi to win = P(R) = 1 – P(S)

6. Two coins (a one rupee coin and a two rupee coin) are tossed once. Find a sample space.

Solution: Either Head(H) or Tail(T) can be the outcomes.

Heads on both coins = (H,H) = HH

Head on 1st coin and Tail on the 2nd coin = (H,T) = HT

Tail on 1st coin and Head on the 2nd coin = (T,H) = TH

Tail on both coins = (T,T) = TT

Therefore, the sample space is S = {HH, HT, TH, TT}

S= {H, TH, TTH, TTTH, TTTTH,…}

Solution: S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}, A = {2, 3, 5} and B = {1, 3, 5}

(i) A or B = A ∪ B = {1, 2, 3, 5}

(iii) A but not B = A – B = {2}

9. A coin is tossed three times, consider the following events.

Q: ‘Exactly one head appears’ and

R: ‘At Least two heads appear’.

Check whether they form a set of mutually exclusive and exhaustive events.

Solution: The sample space of the experiment is:

S = {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH, TTT} and

P ∪ Q ∪ R = {TTT, HTT, THT, TTH, HHT, HTH, THH, HHH} = S

Therefore, P, Q and R are exhaustive events.

Therefore, the events are mutually exclusive.

Hence, P, Q and R form a set of mutually exclusive and exhaustive events.

10. If P(A) = 7/13, P(B) = 9/13 and P(A∩B) = 4/13, evaluate P(A|B).

Solution: P(A|B) = P(A∩B)/P(B) = (4/13)/(9/13) = 4/9.
