Here are some suggested extra practice problems for the final two topics, the Binomial Distribution, and the Poisson Distribution. Text: 5.30, 5.32, 5.34, 5.36, 5.42, 5.46, 5.60. Two more on following page. Text has answers. You are buying a dozen eggs at the supermarket. You randomly select cartons from the shelf. Before putting the 12-egg carton in your basket, you check each carton. If a single egg is cracked, you put the carton back and try a brand new one. You know that, overall, 7% of the eggs are cracked. Assume that the probability of one egg being cracked is independent of whether any of the other eggs in the carton are cracked . (Hint: Which model of a discrete RV is appropriate here?) Because the probability of an egg being broken is independent of whether any other eggs are broken, we can apply the binomial distribution, with p=.07, and the number of experiments equal to 12 (the number of eggs in a carton that are tested when we open it). a.) How likely is it that you will accept a single randomly chosen carton? (What probability are
