Dear Students,

As promised, I've made a video tutorial on how to do the group assignment, both excel and how to write your report.

I've also attached hereby a detailed instruction on how to write your report. Read the pdf file carefully and answer the specific question in there and the numbers/outputs you get from Excel. Sample Report or Sample Report

A sample file of Excel is also attached hereby
Sample Excel file or Sample Excel file

I've got some problems uploading to Youtube, I hope Google to work it out before tomorrow. In the meantime, you can download the video tutorial from here (Right Click —> Save link/target as)
Video tutorial

So, what I suggest you to do is:

1. Start with looking at the pdf file. That's what your report is expected to look like. The basic structure is the same. Just add your comments, graphs, and numbers of your own. Remember, you comments and decisions are the most important in deciding your mark!!!

2. If you don't know how to do something in Excel, look at the video tutorials. If you still cannot do it, you can open the excel file to see the formula or something.

If you are still stuck, feel free to email me. I'll reply ASAP.

Good luck with your assignment.
Vinh Tran

Update: I've just managed to get the videos live on Youtube, you can view them here, divided into 3 parts due to the Google's stupid 10 minute limits.

Discrete Distribution - Quiz by Vinh TranVinh Tran, 12 Aug 2009 11:17

Dear Students,

In an effort to help you study, review and assess your progress, I've made up the quiz below for you to try. Try to do the quiz without any help/assistance from any material. It will tell you your results and you can review to know which questions you went wrong (if any). If you can pass the quiz, you should be ok. Otherwise, review and practice more.

Try it as many times as you like, not to remember the answer, of course!, but to give you more practice and confidence.

I will try to make one quiz for each tutorial. So, watch out for new quiz to come and make the most out of the quizzes for assist you study!

Hi,

As we will be having the first quiz next tutorial, I would let you guys go very easy on the preparation for the next tutorial. In fact, out of the numerous exercises in your tutorial notes, I just require you to do 2 exercises before coming to the next tutorial: 4.17 and 4.26.

See you all in class next week!

Tutorial 3 Preparation by Vinh TranVinh Tran, 04 Jul 2009 02:03

Hi Students,

As I said in the first tutorial, out of the many homework exercises in the tutorial notes (the orange one), I will require you to do some of them, which will be discussed in the tutorial. Remember that, after the tutorial, when you receive more material to study, you still need to do the rest to practice for your own benefit!

For tutorial 2 next week, the exercises that you need to complete before coming to the tutorial is: 3.3; 3.6; 3.26; 3.23 and 3.25. Just 5 out of the total 16 exercises. So, I expect that you will be well-prepared for the tutorial.

See you in class!

Tutorial 2 Preparation by Vinh TranVinh Tran, 28 Jun 2009 05:16

Hi Lisa,

You got it. Just a minor correction. Second pick: $P(R2|R1)=\dfrac{3}{8}$ ;)

Don't worry. Worrying too much will make you panic. The kind of questions will be similar to those in the quizzes.

You're well-prepared. Believe in yourself!

Best of luck!

Re: Hlp me in this question by Vinh TranVinh Tran, 17 May 2009 04:17

I got it ^^

For P(red and red)
First pick P(red1) = 4/9
Second pick P(red2) = 3/8
and then just multiply them = 4/9 * 3/8 = 12/72

ser im really2 affraid for tommorow
huh.. it seems that i dont have any describe of how the exam situation?
how the question will be outcome….
and all about that … huh
this my first exam in australia and my exam using english question….

Re: Hlp me in this question by lisawatylisawaty, 17 May 2009 03:22

Hi Lisa,

This is exactly the same as exercise 4.17 that we discussed in class.

Here we are having 2 picks.

1. $P(Red \cap Blue)=?$

  • First pick:

Since we have 4 red marbles out of the total of 9 marbles, the probability that we will get a red marble in the first pick is:

$P(Red)=\dfrac{4}{9}$

  • Second pick:

This is without replacement (pick out and don't put back, which means in the second pick, we will have a total of 8 marbles left). We don't know if the first pick is red or blue (which means that we don't know how many red and blue marbles are left in the second pick), we need to assume that the first pick is red.

If the first pick is red, we will know that 3 red and 5 blue marbles left for the second pick. Therefore, the probability that we will get a blue marble in the second pick is:

$P(Blue|Red)=\dfrac{5}{8}$

  • Conditionally probability formula:

$P(Blue|Red)=\dfrac{P(Blue\cap Red)}{P(Red)}$

Therefore,

$P(Blue\cap Red)=P(Blue|Red)\timesP(Red)= \dfrac{4}{9}\times\dfrac{5}{8}=\dfrac{20}{72}=0.27778$

2. $P(Red\cap Red)=?$

Using the same reasoning as above, try it yourself and post your answer here :)

Re: Hlp me in this question by Vinh TranVinh Tran, 17 May 2009 03:03

A bag contains 4 red marbles and 5 blue marbles. Two marbles are randomly drawn without replacement.

Find the probability of the event “The first marble is red and the second is blue.”
Find the probability "both of the marble is red"

I cant answer it ser, help me
