a. Show the probability of teams ranking 2 and 15 playing game 1 and Teams 7 and 10. Plot the PDF for each in pairs (2/15, 7/10).

Solution:

Let the binomial probability is b(n, x) which is given by

n is total number of trial p is probability of success(scoring) which is given by P(k)=0.5*(1.02^-(k^1.5)) where k is ranking of the teams q is the probability of failure which is given by q=1-p x is successful trial which is given by n*p b is binomial probability

Point is total score of the team in a game which is given by 2*x.

The table shown below shows the above parameters for all teams.

Matlab code to plot PDF for all games in pair is shown below

clear all; clc;

N=75;

for i=1:8 figure for k=i:16-(2*i-1):17-i p=.5*(1.02^-(k^1.5)); %Probability based on ranking S=round(N*p); %successful scoring pt=2*S; %point for i=1:75

Ki=round(i*p); %

B(i)=NchooseK(N,i)*p^(i)*(1-p)^(N-i);

end plot(B) hold on xlabel('successful shoot') ylabel('binomial Probability') title('Pair teams') end end

Output of the code

Plots of PDF for each in pair, 1/16, 2/15, 3/14, 4/13, 5/12, 6/11, 7/10, and 8/9 are shown below respectively.
