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 fullcredit, use correct probability
notation when writing out your answer (i.e. write either P(AB) 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/fullcredit, use correct
probability notation when writing out your answer (i.e. write either P(AB) 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(AB) or P(A) with A, B appropriately replaced by event(s) listed above). 170115) : 317...; ,5/4

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:

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.
