1st q:

if (1+3p)/3,(1-p)/4 and (1-2p)/2 r d probailities of 3 mutually xclusive events show dat 1/3<=p<=1/2.


2nd q:

if k objects r distributed in random among k persons ,find d probability dat at least one of them will  nt gt anything.

Answers : (2)



probailities of each event lies between [0,1]

so , 1-2p >=0

      p=<1/2  ....(1)

also for mutually exclusive events, sum of probabilities is 1

(1+3p)/3 + (1-p)/4 + (1-2p)/2 =<1

(13-3p)/12 =<1


so , 1/3 =< p =< 1/2


no of ways of distributing r objects among k persons is : kCr

no of ways of distributing r objects among (k-1) persons leaving a single person is : (k-1)Cr

probability = (k-1)Cr /kCr

                = (k-r)/k

but the question reads "k objects r (ARE) distributed in random among k persons", why is this r for in your solution?

A man starts from the point P(-3,4) and reaches point Q(0,1) touching x axis at R such that PR+RQ is minimum, then point R is : ???
It can be any point,because for any point on x-axis the sum of the distance is same as that of PQ. i hope u are satisfied. plese post if u r any further doubts.
