1. Identify which one is response variable, and fit a simple regression line, assuming that the relationship between them is linear.
2. Interpret the regression coefficient with reference to your problem.
3. Obtain coefficient of determination, and interpret this.

1. Define Normal distribution. What are the main characteristics of a Normal distribution?
2. What do you mean by probability density function? Write down its properties.

Group B

Attempts any EIGHT questions

The following table gives the installation time (in minutes) for hardware on 50 different computers.

 Installation Time 0-10 10-20 20-30 30-40 40-50 Total Number of computers 4 – 10 – 10 50

If the average installation time is 30.2 minutes, find missing frequencies.

5

The length of power failure in minute are recorded in the following table.

 Power failure time 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Total Frequency 2 5 7 10 4 3 2 33

Find Q3, D2 and P40 and interpret the results.

6

A manufacturing company employs three analytical plan for the design and development of a particular product. For cost reasons, all three are used at varying times. In facts plan 1, 2, and 3 are used for 30%, 20% and 50% of the products respectively. The defect rate in different procedures is as follows: P(D/P1) = 0.01, P(D/P2) = 0.03, P(D/P3) = 0.02, Where P(D/Pj) is the probability of a defective product, given plan j. If a random product was observed and found to be defective, which plan was most likely used and thus responsible?

7

The random variable X has following probability distribution.

 X 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 P(X) = x 0.03 0.15 0.4 0.2 0.1 0.07 0.05
8

If two random variables have the joint probability density function

$$f(x, y) = \left\{\begin{matrix}k(2x + 3y), \enspace for \enspace 0 \leq x \leq 1, \enspace 0 \leq y \leq 1 \\ 0, otherwise\end{matrix}\right.$$

Find (i) constant k (ii) conditional probability density function of X (iii) Identify whether X and Y are independent.

9

A large chain retailer purchases a certain kind of electronic device from a manufacture. The manufacturer indicates that the defective rate of the device is 15%. The inspector randomly picks 10 items from a shipment. What is the probability that there will be at least one defective item among these 10?

10

Message arrives at an electronic message center at random times, with an average of 9 messages per hour.

1. What is the probability of receiving at least four messages during the next hour?
2. What is the probability of receiving at most three messages during the next hour?
11

Following data represent of the preference of 10 students studying B.Sc(CSIT) towards two brands of  computer namely DELL and HP.

 Computer Student Preference Lenovo 5 2 9 8 1 10 3 4 6 7 Acer 10 5 1 3 8 6 2 7 9 4

Apply appropriate statistical tool to measure whether the brand preference is corelated. Also interpret your result.

12
