Problem 44E

Determine the cumulative distribution function for the random variable in Exercise 3-22.

3-22. Consider the hospital patients in Example 2-8. Two patients are selected randomly, with replacement, from the total patients at Hospital 1. What is the probability mass function of the number of patients in the sample who are admitted?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution

Step 1 of 2

We have to find cumulative distribution function for the random variable X

The probability of a patient admitted in the hospital

=0.2413

Then

=0.7587

Let X be the no.of patients admitted in the hospital

Now

=

=0.5756

Now

=(0.2413)+(0.2413)(0.7587)

=0.1831+0.1831

=0.3662

Now

=(0.2413)(0.2413)

=0.0582

Step 2 of 2
