Unformatted text preview: l. (18 pts.) In 1912 the Titanic sank without enough lifeboats for the passengers and crew. The table below looks at survival by gender. Titanic Survival by Gender 1731 2201 In working this problem, use the notation S = Survived the sinking D = did not survive the sinking (Died) M = Male F = Female a. What proportion of the passengers survived? For full-credit, use correct probability notation when writing out your answer (i.e. write either P(A|B) or P(A) with A, B appropriately replaced by event(s) listed above). PO): 7/! 220 l ‘5 .323 b. What proportion of men survived the sinking of the Titanic? For/full-credit, use correct probability notation when writing out your answer (i.e. write either P(A|B) or P(A) with A, B appropriately replaced by event(s) listed above). 367 P(5/M)‘: 77;; 2 .217. c. Given that a passenger survived, what is the chance that they were male? For full- credit, use correct probability notation when writing out your answer (i.e. write either P(A|B) or P(A) with A, B appropriately replaced by event(s) listed above). 170115) : 317...; ,5/4 ’7)» 2. (12 pts.) Keno is a lottery game. Here are the details of a Keno bet you can make in Deadwood, South Dakota via video machine: You select 3 different numbers from 1 through 80 inclusive. There will be 20 numbers chosen as winners by the house, with the other 60 losers. Net winnings for a $1 bet depend on how many of the 20 winning numbers you match. In particular, here are your winnings for the Various possible numbers of matches: Winning Numbers Net Winnings Matched ollars v __ 6 -- 7’9 and .- “gym”; a.

The probability that the first component works during its design life is 0.75, the probability that at least one of the two components does so is 0.95, and the probability that both components do so is 0.70. (Suggestion: Let F = first component works during its design life, S = second component works during its design life, and draw a Venn-diagram.) .05 ,1 5 a.

A system of n components is called a k—out—of-n system provided it functions if and only if at least k of its components function.

In many popular board games (e.g. Trouble, Parchessi) one cannot move their players from “home” to the general playing area until they first throw a particular value on the (single) die that is thrown. Suppose that a ‘6’ must be thrown, using a fair six- sided die, to bring a player out. a. What is the chance that you are first able to bring out a player from home to the general playing area on your fourth turn? ' <97 i) b.
