Midterm Exam_MATH302 Question 1 of 25 1.0/ 1.0 Points Suppose that a histogram of a data set is approximately symmetric and "bell shaped". Approximately what percent of the observations are within one standard deviation of the mean? A. 68% B. 50% C. 95% D. 99.7% Answer Key: A Question 2 of 25 1.0/ 1.0 Points If two events are mutually exclusive, what is the probability that one or the other occurs? A. 0.50 B. Cannot be determined from the information given. C. 0.25 D. 1.00 Answer Key: B Question 3 of 25 1.0/ 1.0 Points If A and B are any two events with P(A) = .8 and f\$P(B|ar{A})= .7f\$ then f\$P(ar{A}igcap{B})f\$ is: A. .24 B. 0.14 C. 0.875 D. 0.56 Answer Key: B Question 4 of 25 1.0/ 1.0 Points A multiple choice quiz consists of 6 questions, each with 4 possible answers.
