**Q1. A coin is tossed 1000 times with the following sequence: ****Head: 455, Tail=:545. ****Compute the probability of each event**

** **

**Answer:**

It is given that the coin is tossed 1000 times. The number of trials is 1000

Let us denote the event of getting head and of getting tails be E and F respectively. Then

Number of trials in which the E happens= 455

So, Probability of E= \(\frac{Number of event heads}{Total no of trials}\)

i.e. P(E) \(=\frac{455}{1000}\)

Similarity, the probability of the event getting a tail = \(\frac{Number of tails}{Total no of trials}\)

i.e. P(F) \(=\frac{545}{1000}\)

** **

**Q2. Two coins are tossed simultaneously 500 times with the following frequencies of different outcomes:**

**TWO HEADS: 95 times**

**ONE HEADS: 290 times**

**NO HEADS: 115 times**

**Find the probability of occurrence of each of these events**

** ****Answer:**

Probability (E) = \(\frac{number of trials in which events happen}{Total no of trials}\)

P(Getting two heads) \(= \frac{95}{500}\)

P(Getting one tail) \(= \frac{290}{500}\)

P(Getting no head) \(= \frac{115}{500}\)

**Q3. Three coins are tossed simultaneously 100 times with the following frequencies of different outcomes:**

OUTCOME |
NO HEAD |
ONE HEAD |
TWO HEAD |
THREE HEAD |

FREQUENCY |
14 |
38 |
36 |
12 |

** If the three coins are tossed simultaneously again, compute the probability of:**

**1. heads coming up**

**2. heads coming up**

**3. At least one Head coming up**

**4. Getting more Tails than Heads **

**5. Getting more heads than tails**

** **

**ANS:**

**1:** Probability of 2 Heads coming up= \(\frac{Favorable outcome}{Total outcome}\)

\(=\frac{36}{100}\)

**2.** Probability of 3 Heads coming up= \(\frac{Favorable outcome}{Total outcome}\)

\(=\frac{12}{100}\)

**3.** Probability of at least one head coming up= \(\frac{Favorable outcome}{Total outcome}\)

\(=\frac{38+36+12}{100}\)

\(=\frac{86}{100}\)

**4.** Probability of getting more Heads than Tails= \(\frac{Favorable outcome}{Total outcome}\)

\(=\frac{36+12}{100}\)

\(=\frac{48}{100}\)

**5. **Probability of getting more tails than heads= \(\frac{Favorable outcome}{Total outcome}\)

\(=\frac{14+38}{100}\)

\(=\frac{52}{100}\)

**Q4. 1500 families with 2 children were selected randomly, and the following data were recorded: **

0 |
1 |
2 |

No of girls |
211 |
814 |
475 |

** **

**If a family is chosen at random, compute the probability that it has:**

**1. No girl**

**2. 1 girl **

**3. 2 girls**

**4. At most one girl**

**5. More girls than boys**

** **** **

**Answer**

**1.** Probability of having no girl in a family= \(\frac{no of families having no girl}{Total no of families}\)

\(=\frac{211}{1500}\)

**2.** Probability of having 1 girl in a family= \(\frac{no of families having 1 girl}{Total no of families}\)

\(=\frac{814}{1500}\)

\(=\frac{407}{750}\)

**3.** Probability of having 2 girls in a family= \(\frac{no of families having 2 girls}{Total no of families}\)

\(=\frac{475}{1500}\)

**4.** Probability of having at the most one girl= \(\frac{no of families having at the most one girl}{Total no of families}\)

\(=\frac{211+814}{1500}\)

\(=\frac{1025}{1500}\)

**5.** Probability of having more girls than boys= \(\frac{no of families having more girls than boys}{Total no of families}\)

\(=\frac{475}{1500}\)

**Q5. In a cricket match, a batsman hits a boundary 6 times out of 30 balls he plays. Find the probability that:**

**1. He hit a boundary**

**2. He did not hit a boundary.**

** ****Answer**

Number of times the batsman hits a boundary= 6

Total number of balls played= 30

Number of times the batsman did not hit a boundary= 30-6= 24

**1.** Probability that the batsman hits a boundary= \(\frac{Number of times he hit a boundary}{Total no of balls}\)

\(=\frac{6}{30}\)

\(=\frac{1}{5}\)

**2.** Probability that the batsman does not hit a boundary

\(\frac{Number of time he did not hit a boundary}{Total no of balls}\)

\(=\frac{24}{30}\)

\(=\frac{4}{5}\)

** **

**Find the probability that the student gets**

**1. More than 70% marks**

**2. Less than 70% marks**

**3. A distinction**

** **

**Answer:**

**1:** Let E be the event of getting more than 70% marks

No of times E happens=3

Probability(Getting more than 70%)= \(\frac{Number of times student got more than 70%}{Total no of exams taken}\)

\(=\frac{3}{5}\)

**2.** Let F be the event of getting less than 70% marks

No of times F happen= 2

Probability(Getting less than 70%)= \(\frac{Number of times student got less than 70%}{Total no of exams taken}\)

**3.** Let G be the event of getting distinction

No of times G happen= 1

Probability(Getting distinction)= \(\frac{Number of times student got distinction}{Total no of exams taken}\)
