Name: _______________________________ Statistical Analysis Quiz 1 (15 points) Instructions This is an open book quiz. You have 15 minutes to complete the quiz. To get full credit for each question, please provide your reasoning and justification, NOT only the result. SECTION F4 1. 60% of all students at a given university are female. 30% of all students eat in the university cafeteria. 40% of the male students eat in the cafeteria. a. What percent of students are female and don’t eat in the cafeteria ? (2 points) Eat at cafeteria Do not eat at cafeteria Total Male 16 24 40 Female 14 46 60 Total 30 70 100 P ( Female∩Doesnot eat cafeteria ) = 46 0.46 b. What is the probability that one randomly selected student will be either a male or eats in the cafeteria ? (2 points). P ( Male Eats cafeteria ) = P ( Male ) + P ( Eats Cafeteria ) P ( Male∩ Eats Cafeteria ) = 40 + 30 c. Are the events “female ” and “eating in the cafeteria” independent? Please justify your answer (2 points). If independent, P ( Eats Cafeteria | Female ¿ = P ( Eats Cafeteria ) Here, P ( Eats Cafeteria | Female ¿ = P ( Female∩ Eats cafeteria ) P ( Female ) = 0.14 0.6 = 0.23 and P ( Eats Cafeteria ) = 0.3
Since P ( Eats Cafeteria | Female ¿ ≠P ( Eats Cafeteria ) , the events are not independent. 2. Four small companies that are managed by one large company were being evaluated for their performance. As a part of quality improvement initiative, employee satisfaction was measured. a. If your friend works for any of these companies, what is the probability that he is satisfied working there? (3 points) Define 4 mutually exclusive and exhaustive events: P ( A ) = 80 200 = 0.4 ; P ( B ) = 50 200 = 0.25 ;P ( C ) = 30 200 = 0.15 ; P ( D ) = 40 200 = 0.2 Other Information: P ( Dissatified | A ) = 0.05 ; P ( Dissatisfied | B ) = 0.1 ;P ( Dissatisfied | C ) = 0.06 ; P ( Dissatisfied | D ) = 0.04 ( 0.4 ) ( 0.05 ) + ( 0.25 ) ( 0.1 ) + ( 0.15 ) ( 0.06 ) + ( 0.2 ) ( 0.04 ) = 1 [ 0.02 + 0.025 + 0.009 + 0.008 ] = 1 0.062 = 0.938 P ( Dissatified | A ) P ( A ) + P (

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
