Practice Problem: 60% of the students at a certain school wear neither a ring nor a necklace. 20% wear a ring and 30% wear a necklace. NOTE: this is what the completed Venn Diagram would look like. Each part should be labeled so that it is mutually exclusive of the other parts (i.e. each part of the entire R circle should add together to get the overall P(R).) a. If one the students is randomly selected, what is the probability that this student is wearing a ring or a necklace? Shade the appropriate area in the Venn Diagram at the left; also calculate your answer using the formulas provided.

Unformatted text preview: probability outside of the circles (neither ring nor necklace) is 60%, so there must be 40% inside the circles: (± ² ³) ´ µ ¶ (± ² ³) · ´ µ ¶ ¸¹ º ´ »»»»¸¹ ¼ b. If one the students is randomly selected, what is the probability that this student is wearing a ring and a necklace? Shade the appropriate area in the Venn Diagram at the left; also calculate your answer using the formulas provided. Since we know (± ² ³) ´ ¸¹ ¼ , we can solve for (± ½ ³) : (± ² ³) ´ (±) ¾ (³) ¶ (± ½ ³) »»»»»»»»»»»¸¹ ¼ ´ ¸¹ ¿ ¾ ¸¹ À ¶ (± ½ ³) So: (± ½ ³) ´ ¸¹ ¿ ¾ ¸¹ À ¶ ¸¹ ¼ ´ »»»¸¹ µ 0.1 0.2 0.1 0.6 R N...

    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.
