ECE 3530: Spring 13 University of Utah HOMEWORK #4 - DUE: Friday,
There are multiple question in this assignment. and i am skeptical about questions 2, 3 and 5 in the PDF. i need some explanations and answers on each section. I have attached the PDF file of the assignment. Can anyone go through and let me know on the answers of it with explanation. It would be helpful.

1. Exercise 3.1 from textbook.
2. (a) The function
( f (x) = 1.5 ? 2|x|, ?1 ? x ? 1
otherwise is not a valid probability density function. Why not?
(b) The function F (x) = 1 + sin(x) is not a valid cumulative distribution function.
Why not? sh is
vi y re
m (c) The function ( F (x) = 2 ? x1 ,
otherwise is not a valid cumulative distribution function. Why not?
(d) Is the following valid probability mass function for a discrete random variable? If
it is not, state the reason. 0.2,
f (x) = 0.2,
otherwise (e) Consider the following probability mass function for a discrete random variable: 2k,
x = ?1
f (x) = 3k,
otherwise Find the value k which makes f (x) a valid probability mass function. Th 3. An electronics company manufactures 3 models of microprocessors. The models sell for
the following prices: Model A: $20, Model B: $40 and Model C: $60.
Customers buying microprocessors from this company choose the various models with
the following probabilities:
P (A) = 0.2 P (B) = 0.7 P (C) = 0.1 (a) A market analyst wishes to calculate the average price of chips that customers
purchase. Calculate this average or mean price.
(b) The plot below shows the probability density function f (x) for the maximum sustainable clock speed of the model A microprocessor. https://www.coursehero.com/file/12189195/ECE3530Spring13Assignment4/ sh is
vi y re
m Find the mean of the maximum sustainable clock speed for the model A microprocessor.
(c) Find the cumulative distribution function F (x) for this random variable.
(d) Compute the probability that the maximum sustainable clock speed for a model A
will be less than 60 kHz.
(e) Compute the probability that the maximum sustainable clock speed for a model A
will be between 60 and 80 kHz.
4. Exercise 3.36 from textbook. 5. A cellphone service provider wants to analyze the signal strengths of its network.
(a) Let X be the random variable that is the distance (in miles) that a customer will
be to the nearest cellphone tower. Analyzing their database, the company finds
that the probability density function is
( f (x) = 1/4, 2 ? x ? 6
otherwise Find the mean and variance of random variable X.
(b) The company is now interested in signal strengths. The company finds that the
signal power (in milliwatts) at a distance x from the tower is P (x) = 40/x2 . Given
the probability density function for X in the previous part, what is the expected
signal strength? Hint: This is asking for E[P (x)] Th 6. A bag contains 7 red and 3 blue marbles. You draw three marbles from this bag without
replacement. Let X be the number of blue marbles you get.
(a) Is X a discrete or a continuous random variable?
(b) Determine the probability distribution function f (x) and the cumulative distribution function F (x) for the random variable X.
(c) Using F (x) find P (X ? 1)
(d) Compute the mean, variance and standard deviation of the random variable X.
(e) Assume that this is a game in a casino: the payoff is $100X and it costs $10, 000 to
play the game each time. Compute the average net gain/loss per game. https://www.coursehero.com/file/12189195/ECE3530Spring13Assignment4/ Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
