2. Alex sets two alarm clocks each night to ensure that he does not sleep through his 11:00 a.m. class. His primary clock properly sounds its alarm on 90% of the mornings, while his secondary clock rings its bell on only 60% of mornings. Assume the clocks operate independently. a) (3) What percent of the time does Alex’s two-clock strategy prevent him from oversleeping? That is, find the probability that at least one alarm would sound on a given morning. P( 1st OR 2nd ) = P( 1st ) + P( 2nd ) – P( 1st AND 2nd ) = 0.90 + 0.60 – 0.90 × 0.60 = 0.96 . OR P( at least one ) = 1 – P( none ) = 1 – 0.10 × 0.40 = 0.96 . b) (3) Find the probability that only one alarm would sound on a given morning. P( 1st only ) + P( 2nd only ) = 0.90 × 0.40 + 0.10 × 0.60 = 0.42 . 3. (4) In order to create more room in his freezer, Alex took all pizza pockets out of the boxes, but he forgot to label them. He only remembers that 5 are ham and cheese, 7 are pepperoni pizza, and 4 are Philly steak. When a few of his friends drop over for a game of poker, Alex decides to serve pizza pockets. If he selects 5 pockets at random, what is the probability that 2 of them are ham and cheese and 3 are
