- - - * '''Exercise 2:''' Use SOCR to graph and print the distribution of a geometric random variable with $p=0.2, p=0.7$.  What is the shape of these distributions?  What happens when $p$ is large?  What happens when $p$ is small? - - Below you can see a snapshot of the distribution of $X \sim geometric(0.4)$ - - -

- - $\sqrt(n)$ - - * '''Exercise 3:''' Select the geometric probability distribution with $p=0.2$.  Use SOCR to compute the following: - **a. $P(X=5)$ - **b. $P(X > 3)$ - **c. $P(X \le 5)$ - **d. $P(X > 6)$ - **e. $P(X \ge 8)$ - **f. $P(4 \le X \le 9)$ - **g. $P(4 < X < 9)$ - - * '''Exercise 4:''' Verify that your answers in exercise 3 agree with the formulas discussed in class, for example, $P(X=x)=(1-p)^{x-1}p$, $P(X > k)=(1-p)^k$, etc.  Write all your answers in detail using those formulas. - - * '''Exercise 5:''' Let $X$ follow the hypergeometric probability distribution with $N=52$, $n=10$, and number of "hot" items 13.  Use SOCR to graph and print this distribution. - - Below you can see a snapshot of the distribution of $X \sim hypergeometric(N=100, n=15, r=30)$ - - -

- - - * '''Exercise 6:''' Refer to exercise 5.  Use SOCR to compute $P(X=5)$ and write down the formula that gives this answer. - - * '''Exercise 7:''' Binomial approximation to hypergeometric:  Let $X$ follow the hypergeometric probability distribution with $N=1000, \ n=10$ and number of "hot" items 50.  Graph and print this distribution. - - * '''Exercise 8:''' Refer to exercise 7.  Use SOCR to compute the exact probability: $P(X=2)$.  Approximate $P(X=2)$ using the binomial distribution.  Is the approximation good?  Why? - - * '''Exercise 9:''' Do you think you can approximate well the hypergeometric probability distribution with $N=50, \ n=10$, and number of "hot" items 40 using the binomial probability distribution?  Explain. - - -
