Question 17 of 40 0.0/ 2.5 Points

In a poll, respondents were asked whether they had ever been in a car accident. 220 respondents indicated that they had been in a car accident and 370 respondents said that they had not been in a car accident. If one of these respondents is randomly selected, what is the probability of getting someone who has been in a car accident? Round to the nearest thousandth.

Question 19 of 40 0.0/ 2.5 Points

A committee of three people is to be formed. The three people will be selected from a list of five possible committee members. A simple random sample of three people is taken, without replacement, from the group of five people. Using the letters A, B, C, D, E to represent the five people, list the possible samples of size three and use your list to determine the probability that B is included in the sample. (Hint: There are 10 possible samples.)

Question 20 of 40 0.0/ 2.5 Points

Jody checked the temperature 12 times on Monday, and the last digit of the temperature was odd six times more than it was even. On Tuesday, she checked it 18 times and the last digit was odd eight times more than it was even. Determine which series is closer to the 50/50 ratio of odd/even expected of such a series of temperature checks.

 

[removed]

A. The Monday series is closer because 1/6 is closer to 1/2 than is 1/8.

[removed]

B. The Monday series is closer because 6/12 is closer to 0.5 than is 8/18.

[removed]

C. The Tuesday series is closer because the 13/18 is closer to 0.5 than is 9/12.

[removed]

D. The series closest to the theoretical 50/50 cannot be determined without knowing the number of odds and evens in each series.

Question 23 of 40 2.5/ 2.5 Points

30% of the fifth grade students in a large school district read below grade level. The distribution of sample proportions of samples of 100 students from this population is normal with a mean of 0.30 and a standard deviation of 0.045. Suppose that you select a sample of 100 fifth grade students from this district and find that the proportion that reads below grade level in the sample is 0.36. What is the probability that a second sample would be selected with a proportion less than 0.36?
