one point each, seven short—answer problems worth one point each, and one freewresponse problem
worth eight points. for an exam total of 40 points. Port 1. Moltigie—Choiee (two points each) Clearly fill in the oval on your answer card which. corresponds to the only correct response. 1. Returns are brought to a large deoartment store at at} average rate of six per hour. (This is a Poisson
