solution In Morse code, dots and dashes are sent in the ratio 3:4, but transmission errors cause a dot to be come a dash with probability 1/4 while a dash is incorrectly read as a dot with probability 1/6. Assuming any two signals are independent of each other, find the probability distribution of the message actually sent when a "dash-dot-dot" is received.

proof Let X\, be the number of events per unit time, so that X\sim {{\rm {Poisson}}}(\lambda ). Prove that T\,, the time between successive events, has an exponential distribution with rate parameter \lambda \,.

proof Let X\sim {{\rm {N}}}(\mu ,\sigma ^{2}) be a normal random variable. Derive F_{X}(x)\,, the cdf of X\,, in terms of the error function from calculus, {{\rm {Erf}}}(x)=\int _{0}^{x}e^{{-y^{2}}}\,dy.

solution A continuous random variable X\, has a pdf of the form f(x)={\begin{cases}ce^{{-2x}}&x>1\\0&x\leq 1,\end{cases}} where c is a constant. Find the value of c and the cdf of X\,.

solution Let us have an array of N numbered elements, p.e., \{1,2,\ldots ,N\}. Let the array be randomly reordenated. Find the probability of finding none of the elements in its original position when N\to \infty .
