ASM (16th) Exercise 11.3
Is the solution to ASM (16th edition) Exercise 11.3 correct? I've been looking for the corrections/errata but can't find it.
Question: For a distribution from (a,b,0) class, you are given that p2/p1 = 0.25 and p4/p3 = 0.225. Determine p2. Book Answer: b = 0.1 a = 0.2 Therefore distribution is Neg Bi r = 1.5 p2 = 0.05367 I am not getting this answer. Can someone confirm if this is right? My answer: b = 0.1 a = 0.2 Therefore distribution is Neg Bi a = B / (1+B) B = 0.2 b = (r1)B / (1+B) r = 1.6 p2 = 0.04316
