Draw a histogram of the sample. 3. Based on the intervals [0 , 5) , [5 , 10) , [10 , 17) , [17 , 25) , [25 , 35) , draw the density of the sample. Solution. 1. Mean = 229 / 18 = 22 . 7222 , Median = 23 / 2 = 11 . 5 . 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 0.5 1.0 1.5 2.0 2. 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 0.01 0.02 0.03 0.04 0.05 3. Problem 2. In choosing a lunch a person is faced with three options, salad, meat plate or pasta. Assume that the person is twice likely to choose pasta than meat or salad. Write the sample space of the experiment and find the probability that the person chooses meat. Solution. The sample space is given by S = { s, m, p } . We know that P ( p ) = 2 P ( m ) = 2 P ( s ) and on the other hand P ( p ) + P ( m ) + P ( s ) = 1, therefore P ( m ) = P ( s ) = 1 / 4 and P ( p ) = 1 / 2. Problem 3.
