Math 1160 – Section 6.3 Answer Key 4. 6/50 = 3/25 = .12 or 12% 6a. 3/9 = 1/3 6b. 5/9 6c. 6/9 = 2/3 8a. No (do not add up to 1) 8b. No (can not have a negative probability) 8c. No (do not add up to 1 and can not have a probability of 2) 8d. Yes (the probabilities add up to 1 and all are values between 0 and 1) 10a. Pr (E) = Pr (s 1 ) + Pr (s 2 ) = .05 + .25 = .30 Pr (F) = Pr (s 3 ) + Pr (s 5 ) + Pr (s 6 ) = .05 + .63 + .01 = .69 10b. Pr (E ´ ) = Pr (s 3 ) + Pr (s 4 ) + Pr (s 5 ) + Pr (s 6 ) = .05 + .01 + .63 + .01 = .70 10c. 0 (They have no outcomes in common.)
