Unformatted text preview: d) What is the probability that a house with a garage does not have a pool? e) Are having a pool and having a garage independent events? 3. Suppose a lock is opened with the correct sequence of three numbers between 1 and 10, inclusive. Assume the same number cannot be used more than once, and each number is independent from one another. a) Suppose you have three guesses. What is the probability you will open the lock? b) You are told that 3 and 7 are in the solution, but you are not given their position. What is the probability you will open the lock with one guess? (Hint: Let P = putting 3 and 7 in the right spot, T = matching the third number, and use the property of independence.) 4. Assume there are two events A and B in a sample space where ) Pr( A , and ) Pr( B . Is it possible for A and B to be mutually exclusive and statistically independent? Show your work....
