Quiz 1t Started:   October 5, 2006 11:21am Finished:   October 5, 2006 11:40am Time spent:   18 min. 45 sec. Question 1    (5 points) If events A and B are not independent. What is the probability of their UNION?  Student response: The probability equation for independent is P[AB] = P[A] P[B]. Since A and B are not  independent then the probability of their union is zero. But if the event A and B are P[AB]=  P[A] + P[B] then the probability is gt zero. Score: 2 / 5 Grader comments P(AuB) = P(A)+P(B) - P(AnB) Question 2    (5 points) Find the probability that a single toss of a fair die will result in the number 4 or less if it is given that the toss  resulted in an even number.  Student response: There is only one even number less than 4 and that is 2. Since there are 6 faces on a die  then the probability of each number is 1/6, so the probability for the two would be 2/6 or 1/3. Score: 2 / 5 Grader comments NO this is a conditional probability =2/3 Total score: 4 / 10  =  40.0% Quiz 1m Started:   October 6, 2006 4:58pm Finished:   October 6, 2006 5:28pm Time spent:   30 min. 6 sec. Question 1    (5 points) A company makes computers which contain a chip which is supplied by three vendors with equal likelihood.  Vendors are known to supply defective chips with the following probabilities 'A' .003; 'B' .002; and 'C' .001. If a  computer is found to have a bad chip what is the probability that the chip came from vendor 'A'?  Student response: Using Bayes Theorem P[A\B]=P[A|B]P[B]/P[A] we find that the probability bad chip came  from vendor A is (1/.002*.002/(.002+.001))/((1/.002)*(.002/(.002+.001)= .001 Score: 3 / 5 Grader comments math errors--P(bad)= 1/3(.001+.002+.003)=.002; P(A|bad)= ((.003)1/3)/.002= 1/2 Question 2    (5 points) Given two events A and B, and that the probabilty of their intersection is the product of the individual probabilities.  Are events A and B independent?  Student response: If two events have a non-zero probability of occurrence, then by comparison it is established  that two events cannot be independent. In order for them to be independent they must have  an intersection. Since there is a probability of an intersection then events A and B are  independent. Score: 5 / 5 Total score: 8 / 10  =  80.0%

    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.
