Math 180A - Homework 2


( Due Friday, OCT 7, 2:00 PM)


Reading: Sections 1.1 - 1.5 and 2.5 of the textbook and lecture notes 4-6.


Show FULL JUSTIFICATION for all your answers. 1. In how many ways can 8 people be seated in a row if


a. there are no restrictions on the seating arrangement;


b. persons A and B do NOT want to sit next to each other;


c. there are 4 married couples and each couple must sit together.


2. Problem 17. of Chapter 2. of the textbook.


3. An urn contains 12 red balls and 6 black balls. If we choose 5 balls at random from the urn,


what is the probability that at least 2 black balls will be among the 5 balls chosen?


4. Problem 31. of Chapter 2. of the textbook.


5. Problem 29. of Chapter 2. of the textbook.


6. Provide a purely combinatorial argument (requiring little or no computations) to establish


the following identity for an integers n ? 1:

















i=k (Hint: consider the event Ai that when you choose k numbers from the set {1, ..., n}, the


largest number chosen is i)


7. Provide a purely combinatorial explanation of why













r, n ? r


8. a. Suppose 8 cards are chosen at random from one deck of playing cards. What is the


probability that exactly 2 cards are chosen from each suit.


b. Now suppose we have 8 sets of playing cards, and we choose one card at random from


each set. What is the probability that, among 8 cards chosen, there are exactly 2 cards


from each suit.


c. Compare the results of parts a and b: which of the two cases has a bigger probability?


Provide a heuristic argument for why such is the case. 9. Problem 54. of Chapter 2. of the textbook.
