Coursework 2 Deadline Date: Thursday
17/03/2022
This coursework will be marked anonymously
YOU MUST NOT PUT ANY INDICATION OF YOUR IDENTITY IN YOUR
SUBMISSION
This coursework should take an average student who is up-to-date with tutorial
work approximately 50 hours
Feedback and grades are normally made available within 15 working days of the
coursework deadline
Learning Outcomes:
4. Demonstrate knowledge of some of the commonly used statistical
techniques (simple linear regression), ca
y out the required statistical analysis and
eflect on results.
Plagiarism is presenting somebody else's work as your own. It
includes: copying information directly from the Web or books without
eferencing the material; submitting joint coursework as an individual
effort; copying another student's coursework; stealing coursework
from another student and submitting it as your own work. Suspected
plagiarism will be investigated and if found to have occu
ed will be
dealt with according to the procedures set down by the University.
Please see your student handbook for further details of what is / isn't
plagiarism.

All material copied or amended from any source (e.g. internet, books) must
e referenced co
ectly according to the reference style you are using.

Your work will be submitted for plagiarism checking. Any attempt to
ypass our plagiarism detection systems will be treated as a severe
Assessment Offence.
The University website has details of the cu
ent Coursework Regulations,
including details of penalties for late submission, procedures for
Extenuating Circumstances, and penalties for Assessment
Offences. See http:

Submission Information
Your submission should comprise one single PDF document of your work,
submitted via the submission link on Moodle before 23:30 on the deadline
date.
There are several ways to submit your work as a single PDF document,
and we list a few below:
• For typed submissions on a word or pages file, simply export that file
as a PDF document
• For handwritten notes completed on a tablet, export that file as a
PDF document
• If you have access to a scanner, carefully scan your work and collate
the output as a final PDF document
• You may take photos of your work on your phone or tablet, paste
these images into a word or pages document and then export that
document as a single PDF document.
These are just a few options that are relatively simple. If you are more
familiar with other ways to scan your work and submit a PDF document,
then please stick with what you are comfortable with.
However, please take note of the following points. When you a submitting
your work please ensure that your work is:
1. Clearly Legible: incomplete work or work that is difficult to follow
ecause of poor quality scans may not receive any marks;
2. In Order: please answer the questions in order as this makes it easier
to mark.
3. Page-Numbered: numbering your pages will make it easier for the
marker to follow and will also serve as a quick check that all of your
work is submitted.
There is no need any more to submit a Banner Header sheet with your
coursework as moodle will record who has submitted their coursework and
when.
Please ensure to submit your coursework in well before the deadline as
many simultaneous submissions may cause moodle to crash.

MATH1180 COURSEWORK 2 4
Question 1: Probability of License Plates (20 marks)
In some states, license plates have 5 characters: three letters followed by 2 numbers.
1. How many distinct such plates are possible? (5 marks)
2. If all sequences of five characters are equally likely, what is the probability that
the license plate for a new car will contain no duplicate letters or numbers?
(5 marks)
3. What is the probability that a randomly selected license plate contains both
A and 1? (5 marks)
4. What is the probability that a randomly selected license plate contains both
A and 1 given we know that the license plate contains no duplicate letters o
numbers? (5 marks)
Total: 20 marks
Question 2: Roll a Die Twice (30 marks)
Roll a fair dice twice. Let X be a discrete random variable representing the numbe
of the first roll minus the number on the second roll; for example, if first roll is 1
and second roll 2, then X(1, 2) = 1− 2 = −1.
1. Write down the sample space of the random variable X. (5 marks)
2. Create in a table for the probability mass function p(x) of X. (5 marks)
3. Find the cumulative distribution function CDF, F (x), for X and plot it against
the values of x. (10 marks)
4. Calculate the expectation E(X). (5 marks)
5. Calculate the variance Var(X). (5 marks)
Total: 30 marks
Question 3: Continuous Random Variable (20 marks)
Let X be a continuous random variable and suppose it has probability density
function of the form
f(x) =
{
α(1− x)n−1 for 0 ≤ x ≤ 1
0 otherwise,
where n is a known integer and n > 0.

2. Var(Y ) = a2Var(X). (5 marks)
Total: 10 marks
Question 5: Joint Distribution (20 marks)
