IOE 474 Winter 08 – Homework 3
Due 10/2/09 at noon
1.
A professor would like to use simulation to determine the average final grade of a class.
A
student’s final grade is comprised of the total homework grade and one exam grade (Final Grade
= Total Homework Grade + One Exam Grade).
The professor allows students to drop their
lowest homework grade.
Therefore the total homework grade is the top 3 of the 4 homework
grades.
Conduct a simulation using the following probability tables to determine the average
final grade for 34 students.
