What is the probability that he leads in a poll of 100 votes? SOLUTION. 48N votes against him. 48N, and n = 100. 48)100-X; = 0, 1,2, .... 52 Equi-Probable Outcomes The probability that the candidate obtains 51 or more votes out of 100 is then f(51) + f(52) + ... + f(lOO). This sum of binomial probabilities can be evaluated on a computer.

The Hypergeometric Distribution Alternatively, we can count unordered samples which are also equally probable under sampling without replacement. Since x members oftype 1 can be chosen in (a) x ways and (xa) (n ~ x ) unordered n- x of type 2 in ( b ) ways, there are n-x samples of this sort. Altogether there are (a +n b) unordered samples, and therefore j"(x)= . (a)x (n-x b )/(a+b), I n x = 0,1,2, .... 3). 1) distributes the total probability lover the non-negative integers. It is called the hypergeometric distribution.

An urn contains 20 balls of which 6 are white and 14 are black. Eight balls are drawn at random from the urn. Find the probability that the sample contains exactly x white balls if (i) sampling is done without replacement; (ii) sampling is done with replacement. SOLUTION. 1) with a = 6, b = 14, and n = S: P(x white balls) = fleX) = (:) I (S ~ x) (2S0); x= 0, 1, .... ) x = 0,1, .... 1. In each case, the most probable number of white balls is 2, and the second most probable number is 3. However the distributions differ markedly in the tails (for large and small x).
