Unformatted text preview: 1. (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 Gmder , 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 were women? For fullcredit, use correct probability
notation when writing out your answer (i.e. write either P(AIB) or P(A) with A, B
appropriately replaced by event(s) listed above). HF); 47" 2,214 m/m = ﬂ 2 .732

Deadwood, South Dakota via video machine: You select 4 different numbers ﬁom 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: 7/0 (a

component works during its design life is 0.90, the probability that at least one of the two
components does so is 0.95, and the probability that both components do so is 0.80. (Suggestion: Let F = ﬁrst component works during its design life, S = second component
works during its design life, and draw a Venn—diagram.) +35 a. What is the probability that the second component works during its design life? P(5): , <95 b. Using the deﬁnition of independence, show why the two components do not work

and only if at least k of its components function. (Example: Perhaps a roof being
supported by n beams remains intact as long as at least some number of the beams are of a threshold level of strength.) a. A Ioutofn system is better known as .series (circle one) system. _ b.

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
