BINOMIAL DISTRIBUTION 2) An Honest die...

BINOMIAL DISTRIBUTION

2) An Honest die is rolled 5 times.

a) Compute the probability of obtaining (i) 0 sixes, (ii) 1 six, (iii) 2 or more sixes.

b) If you are given 10$ whenever 2 or more sixes occur, how much should you pay each time you play this 5 roll game in order for it to be fair?

3) Two evenly matched competitors play four sets of tennis. Is the set score more likely to be 2-2 or 3-1 when they finish? Justify your answer mathematically and be sure to discuss what simplifying assumption you make to deal with the problem mathematically. Are the assumptions realistic?
