Make it as an LPP and solve graphically. What is the maximum profit per week? VIEW SOLUTION
  • Question 29
    There are three coins. One is a two-headed coin (having head on both faces), another is a biased coin that comes up heads 75% of the times and the third is also a biased coin that comes up tails 40% of the time. One of the three coins is chosen at random and tossed and it shows heads. What is the probability that it was the two-headed coin?


    Two numbers are selected at random (without replacement) from the first six positive integers. Let X denote the larger of the two numbers obtained. Find the probability distribution of the random variable X and hence, find the mean of the distribution. VIEW SOLUTION
