PROVA SCRITTA DEL 19/07/2016
1) (a) A medical laboratory test ensures with a probability 0.95 the detection of a
certain disease D, when the disease effectively exists. Meanwhile, the test also
indicates a positive result for one percent of the people without the disease that
have tried the test. We assume that 0.5 percent of the population has the disease
D. We choose at random a person for which the test was positive. What is the
probability that the person is ill?
(b) An aircraft engine fails with probability 1 − p where p ∈ (0, 1), independently
of the other engines. To complete its flight, the aircraft needs that the majority
of its engines works. Calculate the probability to successfully complete the flight
for an aircraft with 3 engines (i.e. at least 2 engines work)
2) Let n, m ∈ N∗ and p ∈ (0, 1) . Let the independent random variables X ∼
Binomial (n, p), Y ∼ Binomial (m, p), and the independent random variables Xi
given by P (Xi = −1) = P (Xi = 1) = 1/2, with i ∈ N∗ .
(a) Find the mean and the variance of X .
(b) Find the type of the distribution of the random variable X + Y . Deduce the
variance of X + Y.

(b) Find the type of the distribution of the random variable X̄k :=

Hint: the notation X ∼ Binomial(n, p) means that X is Binomial distributed with parameters n ∈ N∗ and
n!
k pk q n−k , with k = 0, n, where C k =
. It is useful also the expansion
p ∈ (0, 1), i.e. P(X = k) = Cn

(a) Under which conditions on a, b, c, d function F is a cumulative distribution
function?
(b) If F is a cumulative distribution function associated to a random variable X,
then compute P (X > 2.5) and P (−1 < X ≤ 1.5), using F.
(c) Find a, b, c, d if we know that P(X > 2.5) = 0.25 and P(−1 < X ≤ 1.5) = 0.25.
(d) Find the law (the table) of X.
4) Sia n ∈ N con n ≥ 1, sia α ∈ R sia fn : R → R data da

π(1 + n2 x2 )
(a) Determinare il valore di α tale per cui fn risulti una densità di probabilità di
una variabile casuale Xn ;
(b) Calcolare E(Xn );
(c) Dimostrare che Xn converge a 0 in probabilità.
5) Dare la definizione di variabile casuale normale e calcolare media e varianza.
Note
Le risposte agli esercizi 4 e 5 possono essere date in lingua italiana. La prova avrà una
durata di 3 ore.
