A ball is transferred from the box A to the box B. Then a ball is drawn from the box B. Find the probability that it is white.(7 marks) 6 (c) In a certain college 4% of boys and 1% of girls are taller than 1.8m. Further more 60% of the students are girls. If a student is selected at random and if found to be taller than 1.8 m, what is the probability that the student is a girl?(7 marks) 7 (a) The probability density of a continuous random variable is given by P(x)=y0 e-|x|, -10<x<?. find="" y<sub="">0 also find the mean.</x<?.></span>(6 marks) 7 (b) Obtain the mean and variance of binomial distribution.(7 marks) 7 (c) In a test on 2000 electric bulbs, it was found that the life of a particular make was normally distributed with an average life of 2040 hours ans SD of 60 hours. Estimate the number of bulbs likely to burn for.
i) More than 2150 hours.
ii) Less than 1950 hours
iii) More than 1920 hours but less than 2160 hours.

8 (a) In a city 'A' 20% of a random sample of 900 school boys had a certain slight physical defect. In another city B, 18.5% of a random sample of 1600 school boys had the same defect. Is the difference between the proportions is significant? Why?(6 marks) 8 (b) A manufacture claimed that atleast 95% of the equipment which he supplied to a factory conformed to specifications. An examination of a sample of 200 pieces of equipment revealed that 18 of them were faulty. Test his claim at a significance level of 1% and 5%.(7 marks) 8 (c) A set of five similar coins is tossed 320 times and the result is
