31. 5% of items manufactured by a machine are known to be defective. 500 items are to be made by the

machine. The probability that more than 480 of them are non-defective is approximately

OUT of RANGE bonus marks

[ :n = 500 (total items)

λ = np = .01 x 500 = 10

Now as we know,

Now since we want probability of getting non- defectives more than 480 means defective less than 500-

480=20:

Now substituting the values of λ , and Xs in the pdf and subtracting it from 1, will give us our answer.]

corner A to meet Jill at the opposite corner B. The framework, show in the following figure, is formed by joining

bars of equal length. Jack chooses randomly a path of the shortest length to meet Jill. An example of

such a path, which can be denoted by

Right – Up – Forward – Up – Right – Forward. is also shown in the figure.

2. If there is a trap at the center C of the framework which catches anyone passing through it,

(i) find the number of shortest paths from A to C,

(ii) hence find the probability that Jack will be caught by the trap on his way to B.

Prove, by Mathematical Induction, that n(n + 1)(n + 2)(n + 3) is divisible by 24, for all natural numbers n.

Discussion

Mathematical Induction cannot be applied directly. Here we break the proposition into three parts. Also note that

24 = 4321 = 4!

Solution

For P(1),

1. 12 = 2 is divisible by 2.

2. 123 = 6 is divisible by 3.

For P(k + 1) ,

= 2 [a + k + 1]

…. (4)

, which is divisible by 2.

= 6 [b + a + k + 1]

…. (5)

, which is divisible by 6.

= 24 [c + b + a + k + 1]

, which is divisible by 24 .

P(k + 1) is true.

By the Principle of Mathematical Induction, P(n) is true for all natural numbers, n .

Q.8: Put T for true, and F for false statement. Justify your response if it is false. [ 10 ]

_____1. If A is a square matrix and A2 = I, then A = I or A = -I.

_____2. If AB = O, then A = O or B = O.

_____3. If A, B, C are square and ABC = O, then one of them is O .

_____4. If AB = AC, then B = C.

_____5. If A is non-zero and AB = AC, then B = C.

_____6. The square of a non-zero square matrix must be a non-zero matrix
