MAT 157-CheckPoint Template Student Name: Week #: 3 Instructions: For each assigned problem type in the page number, problem number, and complete solution, showing all work for each problem (using either MathType or Equation Editor recommended) in order to receive credit. One problem in each row, please. Save as a Word file and post to your Individual Forum as an ATTACHMENT. Page # Prob # Complete Solution 2 The odds in favor of an event A are . The event A is drawing one spade and one heart on a two card draw. P ( A ) = (13/52)(12/51) + (13/52)(12/51) = 13/102. 1 – P ( A ) = 89/102. So the odds are 13/89 . 8 P (at least one head) = 1 – P (no heads) = 1 – 1/8 = 7/8. So odds are (7/8)/(1 – 7/8) = 7 to 1 . 36 EV = (1/3)(40,000) + (l/3)(3) + (1/3)(50) = $13,351 . 38 EV = (1/250)($400) = $1.60. Since this is less than the $2.00 purchase price the game is not fair . 48 To be a fair game the cost to play should equal the expected value. EV = (1/6)1 + (1/6)2 + (1/6)3 + (1/6)4 + (1/6)5 + (1/6) 6 = 3.5. So the cost to play should be $3.50 . 2 a. yes. b. Yes, measures and estimates of measures tend to be normally distributed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
