In the May 28 problem, the question asks for the mean and SD and the answer is the mean and Variance. Just a heads up! Thanks for all the great problems!

Default Exercise for July 2, 2005; Some explanation of how they are posted

A new exercise for exam P/1, dated July 2, 2005, has been posted to:
http://www.math.ilstu.edu/krzysio/7-2-5-KO-Exercise.pdf
old exercises can be found at
http://www.math.ilstu.edu/krzysio/Mo...O-Exercise.pdf
Month Number does not contain the leading zero, so July = 7
DayNumber does not contain the leading zero, so July 4 = 7-4
Year Number does not contain the first two digits, and no leading zero if it is in 2000's (I plan to post these well through 2030s, as long as the exam and I continue our existence simultaneously), so July 4, 2005 = 7-4-5
I started in March, and post exercises on Saturdays.

Yours,
Krzys' Ostaszewski

Default How about?

I've seen that MGF before except the question asked for Prob(X>=n) for some integer n, most common is 1 I believe. I think that makes for a more interesting, though harder problem? Let me know what you think

Hi Krzysio

I have a suggestion. Instead of posting individual links, you could just have an html file that you post that has a link to all of the old examples you have created. That would save the problems with the outpost renaming stuff and also would save us some typing. Updating such a file would only require adding a line or two each week.

Dear Marcus Auerlius:

All practice problems that I write are conveniently collected in
the ASM manual available for purchase.

Yours sincerely,
