Question 10 of 20

1.0 Points

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.

Question 11 of 20

1.0 Points

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.

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.

Find P(X > 0). Place your answer, rounded to two decimal places in the blank. For example, 0.56 would be a legitimate entry.

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 exactly three of them will experience a bad side effect? Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank.

Question 13 of 20

1.0 Points

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.

Question 14 of 20

1.0 Points

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.

Find the mean of the following probability distribution.

X 1 2 3 4 5

P(X) 0.20 0.10 0.35 0.05 0.30

Round your answer to two decimal place as necessary. For example, 4.56 would be a legitimate entry.
