Homework Set #4 NAME:____________Rebecca Anderson_____ CM:_____408________ MA 223, Engineering Statistics Spring 2008; 15 points possible Due date: Tuesday , April 15 at the BEGINNING of class . You may work together on thinking through these problems, but what you turn in must be your own individual write up and work. Please show as much work as possible. It’s much easier to give partial credit when the work is all available. _________________________________________________________________________________________ 1. An individual driving onto the Rose-Hulman campus via the main entrance must make a decision; he/she must either turn left toward the dorms, turn right toward Myers and Moench Halls, or go straight into the roundabout in front of Hadley Hall. Let L denote the event that a car turns left, R denote the event that a car turns right, and S denote the event that a car goes straight. The behaviour of three randomly selected cars driving onto the Rose-Hulman campus is recorded. Assumption: n=3is what is ment (a) [0.5 pts] How many events comprise the sample space for this experiment? Sample space= ( possible outcome 1)*(possible outcome 2)*(possible outcome 3)=3*3*3=27 Sample space is usually labled S but as you took that up for the problem I could not use it. (b) [0.5 pts] Let A denote the event that one of the three cars goes left toward the dorms, one goes right toward Myers Hall, and one goes straight to the Hadley Hall roundabout. List the set of outcomes that comprise the event A . A={LRS, LSR, SLR, SRL, RLS, RSL} (c) [1 pt] Assume that it is known from historical data that 50% of the cars entering campus turn left, 40% turn right, and 10% go straight. Use this information to find the probability that event A occurs. P(1 event of A)=( 0.5*0.4*0.1)=.02=2%
