### We choose 6 random numbers out of the first 12 prime numbers. What is the probability that the sum is odd

3 Answers↳

the answer is simply the probability you dont choose 2 assuming the numbers you choose are unique. if there is replacement, its the probability you pick an odd number of 2's. Less

Yeah, just the probability you don't pick a 2. Since you're picking 6 out of 12; Let E(X_n) be the expectation of the indicator variable X_n which takes value 1 if n is chosen and 0 otherwise, then by linearity of expectation, the sum over all 12 E(X_n)s (n=2,3,5,...,p_12) is 6 and since the primes are chosen uniformly, E(X_n)=1/2 for each n. Note that the expectation of an indicator variable is just the probability. So the answer is 1/2. Less

### This wasn't difficult, but it's the only specific question I can remember. You're playing basketball and you're down by 2. You know you can hit a 2-pointer to tie the game with 28% probability, and then go on to win the game in overtime with 50% probability. Alternatively, you know you can hit a 3-pointer and win with 15% probability. Which do you take?

2 Answers↳

The 3-pointer

↳

3-pointer. First option has a probability of 14% of wining (0.28x0.5) whilst the second option gives you a probability of 28%. Less

### They asked questions about technical projects on resumé and statistics based questions. Some mathematics brain teasers. e.g. describe penalty term for lasso regression/sum natural numbers up to 100.

1 Answers↳

I described my projects by framing them with respect to what I learned through them. Discussed the L1 penalty which penalizes the absolute value of the sum of non-zero coefficients. Explained the derivation of n(n+1)/2 formula for the sum of the first n natural numbers. Less
