Age (in years)No. of employees

b) Records taken of the number of male and female births in 800 families having four children are given below:

Number of BirthsFrequency

Test whether the data are consistent with the hypothesis that the binomial law holds for the chance of a male birth is equal to that of a female birth at the level of \(5 \%\) significance.

(You may use the following values: \(\chi_{4,0.05}^{2}=9.488, \chi_{5,0.05}^{2}=11.05, \chi_{6,0.05}^{2}=12.59\) )

3. a) Given below is some information about advertising and sales.

  Advertisement  Expenditure (X)  (Rs. Lakhs)  Sales (Y)  (Rs. Lakhs) 

Correlation coefficient \(=0.8\).

i) Calculate the two regression lines.

ii) Find the likely sales when advertisement expenditure is Rs. 15 lakhs.

iii) What should the advertisement expenditure be if the company wants to attain a sales target of Rs. 120 lakhs?

b) Let \(\mathrm{X}_{1}, \mathrm{X}_{2}, \ldots, \mathrm{X}_{\mathrm{n}}\) be a random sample from a distribution with density function

\mathrm{f}(\mathrm{x}, \theta) & =\theta^{-1} \mathrm{e}^{-\mathrm{x} / \theta,} & & \theta>0 \text { if } \mathrm{x}>0 \\
& =\theta, & & \text { otherwise }

More than 5040
More than 4040
More than 3063
More than 2065

b) If a machine is correctly set up it will produce \(90 \%\) acceptable items. If it is incorrectly set up it will produce \(40 \%\) acceptable items. Experience shows that \(80 \%\) of the set ups are correctly done.

i) If after a certain set up, out of the first two items produced the first is found to be acceptable and the second unacceptable, find the probability that the machine is correctly set up.

ii) If after a certain set up the machine produces two acceptable items as the first two pieces, find the probability that the machine is correctly set up. 5. a) There are two coins – one unbiased with \(\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{H})=\frac{1}{2}\), the other biased with \(\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{H})=\frac{1}{3}\). One of these coins is selected and tossed 4 times. If the head comes up at least twice, the coin is assumed to be unbiased. Find the level of significance and power of the test.

b) The first three moments of a distribution about the value 2 of a variable 1,16 and -40 . Show that the mean is 3 , the variance is 15 and \(\mu_{3}=-86\).

ii) \(\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{X}=0)\),

iii) standard deviation of the distribution.

b) Let the density function of a random variable \(\mathrm{X}\) be

x / 2, & 0<x<2 \\
