5.17 Discrete random variables: lab ii

 Page 1 / 1
This module allows students to apply concepts related to discrete distributions to a simple dice experiment. Students will compare empirical data and a theoretical distribution to determine if the game fits a discrete distribution. This experiment involves the concept of long-term probabilities.

Class Time:

Names:

Student learning outcomes:

• The student will compare empirical data and a theoretical distribution to determine if a Tet gambling game fits a discrete distribution.
• The student will demonstrate an understanding of long-term probabilities.

Supplies:

• 1 game “Lucky Dice” or 3 regular dice
For a detailed game description, refer here . (The link goes to the beginning of Discrete Random Variables Homework. Please refer to Problem #14.)
Round relative frequencies and probabilities to four decimal places.

The procedure

1. The experiment procedure is to bet on one object. Then, roll 3 Lucky Dice and count the number of matches. The number of matches will decide your profit.
2. What is the theoretical probability of 1 die matching the object? $_________$
3. Choose one object to place a bet on. Roll the 3 Lucky Dice. Count the number of matches.
4. Let $X$ = number of matches. Theoretically, $X~B\left(______,______\right)$
5. Let $Y$ = profit per game.

Organize the data

In the chart below, fill in the $Y$ value that corresponds to each $X$ value. Next, record the number of matches picked for your class. Then, calculate the relative frequency.

1. Complete the table.
x y Frequency Relative Frequency

2. Calculate the Following:
• $\overline{x}=$
• ${s}_{x}=$
• $\overline{y}=$
• ${s}_{y}=$
3. Explain what $\overline{x}$ represents.
4. Explain what $\overline{y}$ represents.
5. Based upon the experiment:
• What was the average profit per game?
• Did this represent an average win or loss per game?
• How do you know? Answer in complete sentences.
6. Construct a histogram of the empirical data

Theoretical distribution

Build the theoretical PDF chart for $X$ and $Y$ based on the distribution from the section titled "The Procedure".

1. $x$ $y$ $P\left(x\right)=P\left(y\right)$

2. Calculate the following
• ${\mu }_{x}=$
• ${\sigma }_{x}=$
• ${\mu }_{y}=$
3. Explain what ${\mu }_{x}$ represents.
4. Explain what ${\mu }_{y}$ represents.
5. Based upon theory:
• What was the expected profit per game?
• Did the expected profit represent an average win or loss per game?
• How do you know? Answer in complete sentences.
6. Construct a histogram of the theoretical distribution.

Use the data

Calculate the following (rounded to 4 decimal places):

$\text{RF}$ = relative frequency

Use the data from the section titled "Theoretical Distribution" here:

1. $P\left(x=3\right)=$ $\text{____________}$
2. $P\left(0 $\text{____________}$
3. $P\left(x\ge 2\right)=$ $\text{____________}$

Use the data from the section titled "Organize the Data" here:

1. $\text{RF}\left(x=3\right)=$ $\text{____________}$
2. $\text{RF}\left(0 $\text{____________}$
3. $\text{RF}\left(x\ge 2\right)=$ $\text{____________}$

Discussion question

For questions 1. and 2., consider the graphs, the probabilities and relative frequencies, the means and the standard deviations.

1. Knowing that data vary, describe three similarities between the graphs and distributions of the theoretical and empirical distributions. Use complete sentences. (Note: these answers may vary and still be correct.)
2. Describe the three most significant differences between the graphs or distributions of the theoretical and empirical distributions. (Note: these answers may vary and still be correct.)
3. Thinking about your answers to 1. and 2.,does it appear that the data fit the theoretical distribution? In 1 - 3 complete sentences, explain why or why not.
4. Suppose that the experiment had been repeated 500 times. Which table (from "Organize the Data" or "Theoretical Distribution") would you expect to change? Why? How might the table change?

Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?

types of nano material
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
Porter
many many of nanotubes

what is the k.e before it land
Yasmin
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
Cesar
I'm interested in nanotube
Uday
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.
what is nano technology
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
