Problem 5E

A survey of cars on a certain stretch of highway during morning commute hours showed that 70% had only one occupant, 15% had 2, 10% had 3, 3% had 4, and 2% had 5. Let Xrepresent the number of occupants in a randomly chosen car.

a. Find the probability mass function of X.

b. Find P(X  ≤  2).

c. Find P(X  > 3).

d. Find μX.

e. Find σX

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1of 3 :

A survey of cars on a certain stretch of highway during morning commute hours showed that 70% had only one occupant 15% had 2, 10% had 3, 3% had 4, and 2% had 5.if X represent the number of occupants in a randomly chosen car.

We have to find

The probability mass function of X.P(X)P(X>3)E(X).

Step 2 of 3:

 

 It is given that 70% of the cars had only one occupant. 15% had 2, 10% had 3, 3% had 4, and 2% had 5. We can make a probability table based on this given data.so the probability mass function of X will be in the form.

         

           

   

   (b)  P(  = P(X=1) +P(X=2)

                          =  0.70 +0.15

           

                          =  0.85.

       Therefore the probability P= 0.85

 

    (c)   P(=  1- P(

                          =  1- [ P(X=1) +P( X=2 )+P(X =3) ]

                           =  1 - [0.70 + 0.15 +0.10 ]

                           =  1- 0.95

                           = 0.05.

     So the probability that P(X>3) = 0.05 .
