Probability Space pairwise disjoint events
x^2+y^2 < 1 to find probability of an area in this circular portion
Problems:
1)In a class there are 9 students and each of them buy a gift and distribute randomly. What is the probability that
i) A particular student gets back his/her own gift.
ii)Any of the student get back his/her gift.
2) Birthday problem
3) Coupon collector problem
Conditional Probability
Problem: Two fair blindfolded coins is tossed. Given that atleast one head is tossed. What is the probability that both tosses are heads?
First Bayes' formula Problem: Flip a fair coin. If a head is comes out, then a dice is rolled. If a tail comes out, two dice are rolled. Compute the probability of getting exactly one six?

Bernoulli Trial
Problem: A and B play a series of games. A lost first game. What is the probability that A wins the series?
Random variable X : Ω → R
Example : Tossing two fair coins. X is the random variable denoting number of heads.

Continuous probability distributions  Probability density function
Uniform random variable  Problem:Assume that X is uniform on [0, 1]. What is P (X ∈ Q)?What is the probability that the binary expansion of X starts with 0.010?
Exponential random variable Memoryless property: P (X ≥ x + yX ≥ y) = e^ {−λx}
Problem: Assume that a lightbulb lasts on average 100 hours. Assuming exponential distribution, compute the probability that it lasts more than 200 hours and the probability that it lasts less than 50 hours.
Normal random variable standard normal distribution
Problem: Assume that X is Normal with mean μ = 2 and variance σ^2 = 25. Compute the probability that X is between 1 and 4.
