Unformatted text preview: Exam 2 for Math 1680 Name: Date: Directions: Circle the best answer for each question. If more than
one answer is circled, you will receive no credit for that problem. _ N0 partial credit will be assigned for multiple choice problems. Normal tables and a graphic of all the 36 possible dice
combinations are provided at the back ofyour test. Feel free to tear them off and use them. Good Luck! Total Score: [150 For Questions I and 2, consider the following situation. A student takes a Math 1680
exam with 15 questions. Each question has four multiple choice answers, and each
question is worth 1 0 points with no partial credit given. The student decides to randomly
guess an answerfor each of the questions. 1. Calculate the expected value and standard error for the student’s score (to the nearest
point) on the exam out of 150 points. AM :t4points 15 dtWS w; tweet/imam: 38 i 17 points C) 150 i 0 points
