2
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-2 Chapter Topics The probability of a discrete random variable Covariance and its applications in finance Binomial distribution Poisson distribution Hypergeometric distribution

3
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-3 Random Variable Random variable Outcomes of an experiment expressed numerically e.g.: Toss a die twice; Count the number of times the number 4 appears (0, 1 or 2 times)

4
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-4 Discrete Random Variable Discrete random variable Obtained by counting (1, 2, 3, etc.) Usually a finite number of different values e.g.: Toss a coin five times; Count the number of tails (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 times)

© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-7 Summary Measures Expected value (the mean) Weighted average of the probability distribution:

8
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-8 Summary Measures Example of expected value (the mean): Toss two coins, count the number of tails, compute expected value continued

9
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-9 Summary Measures Variance Weight average squared deviation about the mean (continued)

10
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-10 Example of variance: Toss two coins, count number of tails, compute variance Summary Measures (continued)

© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-12 Computing the Mean for Investment Returns Return per $1,000 for two types of investments P(X i Y i ) Economic condition Dow Jones fund X Growth Stock Y.2 Recession-$100 -$200.5 Stable Economy+ 100 + 50.3 Expanding Economy + 250 + 350 Investment

13
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-13 Computing the Variance for Investment Returns P(X i Y i ) Economic condition Dow Jones fund X Growth Stock Y.2 Recession-$100 -$200.5 Stable Economy+ 100 + 50.3 Expanding Economy + 250 + 350 Investment

14
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-14 Computing the Covariance for Investment Returns P(X i Y i ) Economic condition Dow Jones fund X Growth Stock Y.2 Recession-$100 -$200.5 Stable Economy+ 100 + 50.3 Expanding Economy + 250 + 350 Investment The Covariance of 23,000 indicates that the two investments are positively related and will vary together in the same direction.

16
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-16 Binomial Probability Distribution “n” Identical trials e.g.: 15 tosses of a coin; 10 light bulbs taken from a warehouse Two mutually exclusive outcomes on each trial e.g.: Heads or tails in each toss of a coin; defective or not defective light bulb Trials are independent The outcome of one trial does not affect the outcome of the other

17
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-17 Binomial Probability Distribution Constant probability for each trial e.g.: Probability of getting a tail is the same each time a coin is tossed Two sampling methods Infinite population without replacement Finite population with replacement (continued)

© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-21 Poisson Distribution Poisson process Discrete events in an “interval” The probability of one success in an interval is stable The probability of more than one success in this interval is 0 The probability of success is independent from interval to interval e.g.: The number of customers arriving in 15 minutes e.g.: The number of defects per case of light bulbs PXx x x (| ! e -

22
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-22 Poisson Probability Distribution Function e.g.: Find the probability of four customers arriving in three minutes when the mean is 3.6.

© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-25 Hypergeometric Distribution “n” Trials in a sample taken from a finite population of size N Sample taken without replacement Trials are dependent Concerned with finding the probability of “X” successes in the sample where there are “A” successes in the population

26
© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-26 Hypergeometric Distribution Function e.g.: Three Light bulbs were selected from ten. Of the ten, four were defective. What is the probability that two of the three selected are defective?
