Instructions for taking the exam in the subject "Probability."

Problems for the exam: Probability (Taken from the book: Introduction to Probability by Blitzstein and Hwang) The exam for the course "Probability" will consist of presenting solutions to five problems from the book Introduction to Probability by Blitzstein and Hwang. Select one problem from each of Chapters 1 through 5 to solve. You will present and demonstrate these solutions on the exam. Your grade will be based on the correctness of your solutions and the defense of your solutions. When selecting problems, avoid those problems marked with the letter (S) whose solutions are available on the pages of the book. Thus, the problems from the first five chapters can be found in sections 1.9, 2.11, 3.12, 4.12 and 5.10.
