### 2nd PUC Maths Probability NCERT Text Book Questions and Answers Ex 13.5

Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 1.
A die is thrown 6 times. If ‘getting an odd number’ is a success, what is the probability of
(i) 5 successes?
(ii) at least 5 successes?
(iii) at most 5 successes?
Solution:
There are 3 odd numbers on a die
∴ Probability of getting an odd number on a die = $$\frac { 3 }{ 6 }$$ = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 2.
There are 5% defective items in a large bulk of items. What is the probability that a sample of 10 items will include not more than one defective item ?
Solution:
Probability of getting one defective item = 5%
= $$\frac { 5 }{ 100 }$$
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 20 }$$
Probability of getting a good item = $$1-\frac { 1 }{ 20 }$$ = $$\frac { 19 }{ 20 }$$
A sample of 10 item include not more than one defective item.
=> sample contains at most (me defective item Its probability = P (0) + P (1) Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 3.
A pair of dice is thrown 4 times. If getting a doublet is considered a success, find the probability, of two successes.
Solution:
n(S) = 36, A = {11,22,33,44,55,66}  Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 4.
Five cards are drawn successively with replacement from a well- shuffled deck of 52 cards. What is the probability that
(i) all the five cards are spades?
(ii) only 3 cards are spades?
Solution:
S = {52 cards}, n (S) = 52
Let A denotes the favourable events Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 5.
The probability that a bulb produced by a factory will fuse after 150 days of use is 0.05. Find the probability that out of 5 such bulbs.
(i) none
(ii) not more than one
(iii) more than one
(iv) at least one will fuse after 150 days of use
Solution:
Probability that a bulb gets fuse after 150 days of its use = 0.05
Probability that the bulb will not fuse after 150 days of its use = 1 – 0.05 = 0.95
(i) Probability that no bulb will fuse after 150 Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 6.
A bag consists of 10 balls each marked with one of the digits 0 to 9. If four bails are drawn successively with replacement from the bag, what is the probability that none is marked with the digit 0?
Solution:
S = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},n(S) = 10
Let A represents that the ball is marked with the digit 0.
A = {0}, n(A) = 1 Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 7.
In an examination, 20 questions of true – false type are asked. Suppose a student tosses fair coin to determine his answer to each question. If the coin falls heads, he answers ‘true,’ if it falls tails, he answers “ false’. Find the probability that he answers at least 12 questions correctly.
Solution:
Probability that student answers a question true = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$
i.e., when a coin is thrown, probability that a head is obtained = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$
Probability that his answer is false = $$1-\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$
Probability that his answer at least 12 questions correctly = P (12) + P (13) + P (14) +…….. P (20) Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 8
Suppose X has a binomial distribution $$B\left( 6,\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \right)$$. Show that X = 3 is the most likely outcome.
(Hint: P (X = 3) is the maximum among all P (Xi), xi. = 0,1,2,3,4,5,6)
Solution:
$${ \left( \frac { 1 }{ 2 } +\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \right) }^{ 6 }$$  Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 9.
On a multiple choice examination with three possible answers for each of the five questions, what is the probability that a candidate would get four or more correct answers just by guessing?
Solution:
P = $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$. q = 1 – P = $$1-\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$ Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 10.
A person buys a lottery ticket in 50 lotteries, in each of which his chance of winning a prize is $$\frac { 1 }{ 100 }$$ . What is the probability that he will win a prize?
(a) at least once,
(b) exactly once,
(c) at least twice?
Solution:
Probability that the person wins the prize = $$\frac { 1 }{ 100 }$$
Probability of losing = $$1-\frac { 1 }{ 100 }$$ = $$\frac { 99 }{ 100 }$$
(a) Probability that he loses in all the loteries Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 11.
Find the probability of getting 5 exactly twice in 7 throws of a die.
Solution:
S = {1,2,3,4,5,6},n(S) = 6
A = {5} => n(A) = 1 Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 12.
Find the probability of throwing at most 2 sixes in 6 throws of a single die.
Solution:
When a die is thrown,
Probabiltiy of getting a six = $$\frac { 1 }{ 6 }$$
Probabiltiy of not getting a six = $$1-\frac { 1 }{ 6 }$$ = $$\frac { 5 }{ 6 }$$
Probabiltiy of getting at most 2 sixes in 6 throws of a single die = P (0) + P (1) + P (2) Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 13.
It is known that 10% of certain articles manufactured are defective. What is the probability that in a random sample of 12 such articles 9 are defective?
Solution:
p = $$\frac { 1 }{ 100 }$$ = $$\frac { 1 }{ 10 }$$
q = 1 – p = $$1-\frac { 1 }{ 10 }$$ = $$\frac { 9 }{ 10 }$$ Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 14.
In a box containing 100 bulbs, 10 are defective. The probability that out of a sample of 5 bulbs, none is defective is
(a) $${ 10 }^{ -1 }$$
(b) $${ \left( \frac { 1 }{ 2 } \right) }^{ 5 }$$
(c) $${ \left( \frac { 9 }{ 10 } \right) }^{ 5 }$$
(d) $$\frac { 9 }{ 10 }$$
Solution:
p = $$\frac { 1 }{ 10 }$$
q = $$\frac { 9 }{ 10 }$$ n = 5, r = 0, P(X=0) = $${ \left( \frac { 9 }{ 10 } \right) }^{ 5 }$$
Option (c) is correct

Ex 13.5 Class 12 Maths Question 15.
The probability that a student is not a swimmer is $$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$. Then the probability that out of five students, four are swimmers is: Solution:
p = $$\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$$ , q = $$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$ , n = 5,r = 4 Option (a) is true
