In a box of floppy discs, it is known that 80% will work. A sample of 10 of the discs is selected at random. 1. What is (i) sample space and (i) n? 2. What is   and (1- ) ? π π 3. Can you explain the shape of Histogram on the basis of the given information?  4. Give the expected value and standard deviation of the number of discs that work.  5. What is the difference between BINOMDIST(x, n,  , 0) and BINOMDIST(x, n,  , 1)? π π      Without calculation, what is BINOMDIST(n, n,  , 1)? π 6. What is the probability that 3 of the sample will work? 8. What is the probability that more than 7 of the sample will work? 9. What is the probability that less than 7 of the sample will work? 10. What is the probability that no less than 7 or at least 7 of the sample will work? 11. What is the probability that no more than 7 or at most 7 of the sample will work?

Unformatted text preview: 12. What is the probability that at least 2 but less than 6 of the sample will work? 13. Graph the probability distribution described in this problem and check the shape. 7. What is the probability that 3 of the sample will not work? An oil exploration firm plans to drill 6 holes. They believe that the probability that each hole will yield oil is 0.10. Since they will be drilling in different locations, the outcomes are statistically independent. 1. What is (i) sample space and (ii) n? 2. What is and (1- ) ? π π 3. Give the expected value and standard deviation of the number of holes that will yield oil. 4. Can you explain the shape of Histogram on the basis of the given information? 5. Graph the probability distribution described in this problem and check the shape....

    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.
