Probability

EXERCISE - 4.1 

1. In a each of the following experiments write the sample space S, number of sample points n (S), events P, Q, R using set and n (P), n (Q) and n (R). Find the events among the events defined above which are : complementary events, mutually exclusive events and exhaustive events.  

(i) Three coins are tossed simultaneously :
P is the event of getting at least two heads.
Q is the event of getting no head.
R is the event of getting head on second coin. [Ans + VIDEO.]


(ii) A die is thrown :
P is the event of getting an odd number.
Q is the event of getting an even number.
R is the event of getting a prime number. [Ans+VIDEO.]


(iii) Two dice are thrown :
P is the event that the sum of the scores on the uppermost faces is a multiple of 6.
Q is the event that the sum of the scores on the uppermost faces is at least 10.
R is the event that same score on both dice. [Ans + VIDEO.]


(iv) There are 3 red, 3 white and 3 green balls in a bag. One ball is drawn at random from a bag :
P is the event that ball is red.
Q is the event that ball is not green.
R is the event that ball is red or white. [Ans + VIDEO.]


(v) Form two digit numbers using the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 without repeating the digits.
P is the event that the number so formed is even.
Q is the event that the number so formed is divisible by 3.
R is the event that the number so formed is greater than 50. [Ans + VIDEO.]


(vi) A coin is tossed and a die is thrown simultaneously :
P is the event of getting head and a odd number.
Q is the event of getting either H or T and an even number.
R is the event of getting a number on die greater than 7 and a tail. [Ans+VIDEO.]


(vii) There are 3 men and 2 women. A ‘Gramswachaatta Abhiyan’ committee of two is to be formed.
P is the event that the committee should contain at least one woman.
Q is the event that the committee should contain one man and one woman.
