the correct order. Does a trifecta involve combinations or permutations? Explain. Choose the correct answer below. Because the order of the ﬁrst three ﬁnishers does not make a difference, the trifecta involves
combinations. Because the order of the ﬁrst three ﬁnishers does not make a difference, the trifecta involves
permutations. * Because the order of the ﬁrst three ﬁnishers does make a difference, the trifecta involves

nothing A statistics student wants to ensure that she is not late for an early statistics class because ofa
malfunctioning alarm clock. Instead ofusing one alarm clock, she decides to use four. What is the
probability that at least one ofher alarm clocks works correctly ifeach individual alarm clock has an 83%
chance of working correctly? Does the student really gain much by using four alarm clocks instead of only
one? How are the results affected if all of the alarm clocks run on electricity instead of batteries? The probability that at least one ofher alarm clocks works correctly is 0.9992‘.
(Round to four decimal places as needed.) Does the student really gain much by using four alarm clocks instead ofonly one?I 1* Yes. The likelihood of a functioning alarm clock increases dramatically with four alarm clocks.
No. The probability ofone alarm clock working is about the same as four alarm clocks working.
Yes. It is four times as likely that at least one clock will work properly. No. The clocks are not independent. How are the results affected ifall of the alarm clocks run on electricity instead ofbatteries?
The results are not affected because the alarm clocks are still independent.
The results are not affected because all clocks run on the same electricity.

Book: Triola: ElenIentaiy Statistics. 11e Assignment: Chapter 4A In a study of fatalities caused by motorcycle crashes, it was found that 95% of motorcycle drivers are men
(based on data from "Motorcycle Rider Conspicuity and Crash Related Injury," by Wells et al., BJM USA).
Describe a procedure for using software or a TI83 x“ 84 Plus calculator to simulate the random selection of 20 motorcycle drivers. Each individual outcome should consist of an indication of whether the motorcycle
driver is a man or woman. In a survey of consumers aged l2 and older, respondents were asked how many cell phones were in use by
the household. Among the respondents, 206 answered "none," 280 said "one,’I 359 said "two," 139 said
"three," and 130 responded with four or more. Find the probability that a randomly selected household has
four or more cell phones in use. Is it unusual for a household to have four or more cell phones in use?

(Round to three decimal places as needed.) Is it unusual for a household to have four or more cell phones in use? No, because the probability of a respondent with four or more cell phones in use is
less than or equal to 0.05. Yes, because the probability of a respondent with four or more cell phones in use is
less than or equal to 0.05. Yes, because the probability ofa respondent with four or more cell phones in use is greater than
