Chapter 16: Random Variables 16.HE.A: Page 427, # 6 a.) The probability model would be Result 6 Another 6 Not a 6 Earnings $100 $50 0 b.) The expected amount is 1/6 ($100) + 1/6 ($50) + 5/6 (0) = $25 c.) I would be willing to pay up to $25 for the game 16.HE.B: Page 428, # 18 a.) 0(.05)+2(.25)+2(.35)+3(.15)+4((.15)+5(.05) =2.25 b.) 0.7 16.HE.C: Page 429, # 34 Mean: .64 SD: .18 Chapter 17: Probability Models 17.HE.A: Page 448, # 20 d, e, f d.) Getting exactly 4 bulls eyes is binompdf(6,.80,4)= .24 e.) Getting at least 4 bulls eyes is 1 - binomcdf (4,80,4) = .79 f.) Getting at most is 4 bulls eyes is binomcdf (4,80,4) = 1.0 17.HE.B: Page 448, # 22 a, b

The probability of her never missing is .832 c.) The probability of there being no more than 8 bulls eyes is .87 d.) The probability of exactly 7 bulls eyes is .653 e.) The probability of hitting more than missing is .798 17.HE.D: Page 449, # 30 a.) Mean: 68 SD: .28 b.) The Normal model is appropriate here because her serves meet all assumptions. c.)

    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.
