Example 25 (Method 1) Find the probability distribution of number of doublets in three throws of a pair of dice. If 2 dies are thrown, there are 6 × 6 = 36 outcomes Doublet: It means same number is obtained on both throws of die Number of doublets possible on 2 throws of die are (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (4, 4), (5, 5), (6, 6) P(getting a doublet) = 636 = 16 P(not getting a doublet) = 1 – 16 = 56 We need to find probability distribution of number of doublets in three throws of a pair of dice. Let X : Number of doublets Throwing a die is a Bernoulli trial So, X has a binomial distribution P(X = x) = nCx 𝒒𝒏−𝒙 𝒑𝒙 n = number of times pair of die is thrown = 3 p = Probability of getting doublet = 16 q = 1 – p = 1 – 16 = 56 Hence, P(X = x) = 3Cx 𝟏𝟔𝒙 𝟓𝟔𝟑 − 𝒙 Since Two dies are thrown thrice. We can get, 0 doublet or 1 doublet or 2 doublets or 3 doublets So, value of X can be 0, 1, 2, 3 Now, P(X = 0) = 3C0 160 563−0= 1 × 1 × 563= 125216 P(X = 1) = 3C1 161 563−1= 3 × 16 × 562= 75216 P(X = 2) = 3C2 162 563−2= 3 × 162× 56 = 5216 P(X = 3) = 3C3 163 560= 1 × 163 × 1 = 1216 So, probability distribution is Example 25 (Method 2) Find the probability distribution of number of doublets in three throws of a pair of dice. If 2 dies are thrown, there are 6 × 6 = 36 outcomes Doublet: It means same number is obtained on both throws of die Number of doublets possible on 2 throws of die are (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (4, 4), (5, 5), (6, 6) P(getting a doublet) = 636 = 16 P(not getting a doublet) = 1 – 16 = 56 We need to find probability distribution of number of doublets in three throws of a pair of dice. Since Two dies are thrown thrice. We can get, 0 doublet or 1 doublet or 2 doublets or 3 doublets So, value of X can be 0, 1, 2, 3 P(X = 0) P(X = 0) = P(0 doublet on three throws) = P(0 doublet) × P(0 doublet) × P(0 doublet) = 56 × 56 × 56 = 125216 P(X = 1) P(X = 1) = P(one doublet on three throws) = P(one doublet) × P(0 doublet) × P(0 doublet) + P(0 doublet) × P(one doublet) × P(0 doublet) + P(0 doublet) × P(0 doublet) × P(one doublet) = 16 × 56 × 56 + 56 × 16 × 56 + 56 × 56 × 16 = 3 × 56 × 56 × 16 = 75216 P(X = 2) P(X = 2) = P(two doublet on three throws) = P(one doublet) × P(one doublet) × P(0 doublet) + P(one doublet) × P(0 doublet) × P(one doublet) + P(0 doublet) × P(one doublet) × P(one doublet) = 16 × 16 × 56 + 16 × 56 × 16 + 56 × 16 × 16 = 3 × 16 × 16 × 56 = 15216 P(X = 3) P(X = 3) = P(three doublets on three throws) = P(one doublet) × P(one doublet) × P(one doublet) = 16 × 16 × 16 = 1216 So, probability distribution is
