Part 1 of 6 –

1. A gumball machine contains 300 grape flavored balls, 400 cherry flavored balls, and 500 lemon flavored balls. What is the probability of getting 1 grape ball, 1 cherry ball, and 1 lemon ball if each ball was removed and then replaced before choosing the next from the machine?
2. The number of ways to choose two representatives from a committee of 13 people is
3. In a recent study, the following data were obtained in response to the question, “Do you favor recycling in your neighborhood?”
4. If two events are mutually exclusive, what is the probability that both occur at the same time?
5. If the probability that it will rain tomorrow is 0.38, then the probability that it will not rain tomorrow is:

1. The following data were obtained from a survey of college students. The variable X represents the number of non-assigned books read during the past six months.
2. If a student randomly guesses at 20 multiple-choice questions, find the probability that the student gets exactly four correct. Each question has four possible choices.
3. A researcher surveyed college students to study their opinion about the proposed change in smoking rules. The researcher asked a group of 30 students: 12 of them supported the change, 13 of them did not, and 5 had no opinion. This is not a binomial model because…
4. The variance of a binomial distribution for which n = 100 and p = 0.20 is:
5. A multiple choice quiz consists of 6 questions, each with 4 possible answers. If a student guesses at the answer to each question, then the mean number of correct answers is

1. Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values. For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. Suppose that the probability that a new medication will cause a bad side effect is 0.03. If this medication is given to 150 people, what is the probability that more than three of them will experience a bad side effect? Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 0.1776 would be a legitimate answer.   .1787

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. The annual returns, in percentages, on stocks A and B for three possible states of the economy are given in the table below.

The variable X represents the number of non-assigned books read during the past six months. What is the variance of X?  Place your answer, rounded to two decimal places in the blank. For example, 4.56 would be a legitimate entry. 2.62

A school determines that the number of children X in the families who attend the school follows the distribution below: What is the mean number of children per family?  Round your answer to one decimal place as necessary. For example, 4.5 would be a legitimate entry.

If a student is selected at random, what is the probability that the student is an engineering major?

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is a very visible group whose main focus is to educate the public about the harm caused by drunk drivers. A study was recently done that emphasized the problem we all face with drinking and driving. Five hundred accidents that occurred on a Saturday night were analyzed. Two items noted were the number of vehicles involved and whether alcohol played a role in the accident. The numbers are shown below:

Forty five percent of the sales are chocolate, while 30% are strawberry, with the rest vanilla flavored. Sales are by the cone or the cup. The percentages of cones sales for chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, are 75%, 60%, and 40%, respectively. For a randomly selected sale, define the following events:

Based on historical evidence, the marketing research firm believes that each company, independently of the other, will return the questionnaire with a probability of 0.30. What is the probability that both questionnaires will be returned? Place your answer, rounded to 2 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 0.23 is a legitimate entry.
