Unformatted text preview: Chapter 11 Understanding Randomness (Review) Name MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question Provide an appropriate response.
1) Is the roll of a fair die random? Why or why not? 1)
A) Yes. You can predict the outcome beforehand.
B) No. You can usually predict the outcome on one of six attempts.
C) No. A 3 or 4 is the most likely outcome.
D) Yes. You cannot predict the outcome beforehand. E) No. There is always a bias in a person's rolling technique. 2) What is the minimum number of times that an ordinary deck of playing cards must be shufﬂed to 2)
make the deck random? A)1
1m
(3)7
D)8 E) It cannot be made random. 3) Criticize the following simulation: A student uses a random number from 5 to 13 to simulate the 3)
shoe sizes of a population of females. A) The simulation will not model the real situation. It will predict too many small sizes and too
many large sizes. Extremes in foot size are not all that common. B) The simulation will not model the real situation. The shoes size of a particular female is
unpredictable and cannot be modeled. C) The simulation will not model the real situation. To accurately model the population, the
simulation should also account for the foot width. D) The simulation should model the real situation. E) The simulation will not model the real situation. Some females have foot sizes that fall outside
of the range. 4) Criticize the following simulation: A student simulates the outcome of a basketball player's 3—point
shot by letting O = missed shot and 1 = made shot. A) The simulation cannot model the real situation. Shooting accuracy varies from day to day, so
the real situation is inherently unpredictable. B) The simulation should model the real situation. C) The simulation will not model the real situation. The simulation fails to account for the type
of defense employed by the opposing team. D) The simulation probably will not model the real situation. The shooter's accuracy on a given
day might be affected by an injury or illness. E) The simulation probably will not model the real situation. The simulation assumes that the
player makes 50% of his 3—point shots, which is probably unrealistic. 5) A statistics student properly simulated the number of students at her high school who have the ﬂu She then reported, "The number of students at this school with the flu is 40." What's wrong with
this conclusion? A) The conclusion should indicate that the simulation suggests that there areal) students at the
school who have the flu. Actual results might not match the simulated results exactly. B) The conclusion is not valid because the outcomes in the simulation are not equally likely. C) The conclusion is not valid because random numbers cannot be used to accurately model the
outcome chances. D) The conclusion should indicate the number of trials used in the simulation. E) Nothing is wrong with this conclusion. 6) A tax referendum for property tax funding for a bond issue to build a new school is on the ballot in
the next election. A member of the referendum committee is confident that the question will have
about 52% of the votes cast in the school district. But, you're worried that only 1,000 voters will
show up at the polls since this is an off—year election. How often will the referendum question lose?
To find out, you setup a simulation. Describe how you will simulate a component and its
outcomes. A) The component is one voter voting. An out come is a vote no for the referendum. Use three
random digits, giving 000420 a yes vote and 521999 a no vote. B) The component is one hundred voters voting. An out come is a vote yes or no for the
referendum. Use one random digit, giving 0—5 a yes vote and 6~9 a no vote. C) The component is ten voters voting. An outcome is a vote yes or no for the referendum. Use
two random digits, giving 0062 a yes vote and 53499 a no vote. D) The component is one voter voting. An out come is a Vote yes for the referendum. Use three
random digits, giving 000699 a yes vote and 600—999 a no vote. E) The component is one voter voting. An outcome is a vote yes or no for the referendum. Use
three random digits, giving 000520 a yes vote and 521—999 a no vote. 4) 5) 6) 7) A tax referendum for property tax funding for a bond issue to build a new school is on the ballot in ’7)
the next election. A member of the referendum committee is conﬁdent that the question will have
about 52% of the votes cast in the school district. But, you're worried that only 1,000 voters will
Show up at the polls since this is an offwyear election. How often will the referendum question lose?
To find out, you setup a simulation. Describe the response variable. A) The response variable is Whether the referendum loses or not. B) The response variable is whether the referendum wins or not. C) The response variable is the yes or no vote of one random voter. D) The response variable is the number of votes for referendum that are yes. E) The response variable is the number of votes for referendum that are no. 8) When drawing five cards randomly from a deck, which is more likely, a royal flush or a full house? 8)
A royal flush is the five highest cards of a single suit. A full house is three of one denomination and
two of another. How could you simulate 5~carcl hands? Once you have picked one card, you
cannot pick that same card again. Describe how you will simulate a trial. A) A trial is five—card hands, dealt until the deck is completely dealt. Use five sets of random
numbers, ignoring repeated cards. 13) A trial is a single five—card hand. Use five sets of random numbers, ignoring repeated cards.
C) A trial is a single five—card hand. Use one set of random numbers, ignoring repeated cards.
D) A trial is a single card. Use random numbers, ignoring repeated cards. E) A trial is a single five—card hand. Use five sets of random numbers. Solve the problem. 9) For each time up at hat, a baseball player has a 70% chance of making an out, a 10% chance of 9)
getting walked, and a 20% chance of getting a hit. Estimate the probability that, out of 5 atwbats, the
player gets at least one hit. Use 30 simulation runs. A) About 70%
B) 100% C) About 90%
D) About 20%
E) About 30% 10) In order to illustrate the basic economic and psychological dynamics involved in purchasing life
insurance, one can create a very simple game with a sack, one black marble, and three white
marbles. In this game, the four marbles are placed in the sack, and the player must pay a
"premium" of $5 for each draw he makes from the sack. The previously—drawn marbles are not
returned to the sack. So, if he keeps playing, the player is guaranteed to win the $12 award
eventually (but at what cost?l). Use a simulation to predict the average cost to win the $12
assuming the player continues playing until he gets the black marble. Use 30 simulation runs,
letting a random number give the number of draws to obtain the black marble on a particular run. A) About $12.50
B) About $15.50
C) About $20.50
:3) About $5.00 E) About $17.00 Z’rovide an appropriate response. '11) You take a surprise quiz in your astronomy class with 12 multiple—choice questions. You estimated
that you would have about a 30% chance of getting any individual question correct. What are your
chances of getting them all right? Your simulation should use at least 20 runs. A) 1728 3) 2.1074359
C) 36 D) 3.6  s) 000000053 12) A person with type O—negative blood can donate blood to anyone who needs it, regardless of blood
type. About 6% of the 5.8. population has type O~negative blood. Your workplace is hosting a
