1. [10 marks each]
A firm has five cement mixers for hire, the hire charge for each of which is \$15.00 per
day. The overheads are \$5.00 per mixer per day, whether or not they are hired. Suppose
the daily demand for cement mixers has a Poisson distribution with mean 4.
(a) What is the probability that the firm makes a (strictly positive) profit on any given
day?
(b) What is the expect profit for each day? You may want to use the R function dpois.
For all of the above, you must provide your mathematical derivations by hand. However,
2. [5 marks each]
It has been suggested that income in the USA in 1997 has an exponential distribution
with mean \$35,200. Assuming this distribution for income:
(a) What is the median (0.5-quantile) income?
(b) What is the probability that a person’s income is less than \$10,000?
(c) What income would put a person in the top 1% of earners?
For all of the above, you must provide your mathematical derivations by hand. However,
3. [10 marks each]
Suppose X ～ N (1, 4).
(a) Determine the pdf of Y = eX .
(b) Compute the mean and variance of Y .
4. [5 marks each]
A pair of random variables (X, Y ) has a joint probability distribution in which X ～
Exp(1) and the conditional probability density function of Y given {X = x} is
fY |X(y|x) =
{
e?(y+x), y ≥ ?x
0, else.

(a) Determine the marginal probability density function for Y .
(b) Using the fact that E[XY ] = E[XE[Y |X]], compute Cov(X, Y ).
5. [5 marks each]
The random variables X and Y have a joint probability density fX,Y given by
fX,Y (x, y) =
???c x y, 0 ≤ x ≤ 1, 0 ≤ y ≤ 1,0 otherwise.
(a) Find the constant c.
(b) Are X and Y independent? Prove or disprove this.
(c) Calculate P(2X > Y ).
6. [20 marks]
A study is conducted examining the difference in texting speeds on a mobile phone
while sitting versus walking. The texting speeds both while sitting and while walking are
recorded in words per minute for sixty people. The person’s age and type of mobile phone
(‘Pear’ or ‘Robot’) used are also recorded. The data is present in the file TextSpeed.csv.
Assuming the data is normally distributed (you can check the q-q plot for yourself to see
that this assumption is not entirely unreasonable here), use R or (any other programming
of your choice) to construct a 90% confidence interval for mean texting speed while
sitting. Throughout this question (and others), define any notation you use.
100 marks in total
Note:
This assignment counts for 20% of the total mark for the course.
Although not mandatory, if you could type up your work, e.g., LaTex, it would be
greatly appreciated.
Show all your work and attach your code and all the plots (if there is a programming
question).
