Statistics 528 – Homework 7 Solutions 5.2 (a) No, not a fixed number of trials. (b) Yes, we choose a sample of fixed size and since 100 persons are chosen at random, each person in the sample has the same probability of opposing the death penalty ran on sentence (the proportion of adult residents in the city opposing the death penalty). Furthermore, sampling 100 persons from a large city makes it reasonable to assume that outcomes (oppose or not oppose) are independent. (c) Yes, we have a fixed number of trials (52 weeks), outcomes (win or lose) are independent due to the random selection of winning number, and the probability of winning is the same each week. 5.6 (a) Use table C. If 80% graduate, then 20% fail to graduate. Probability that 11 graduate is the same as the probability that 9 fail to graduate. This is 0.0074. (b) Having 11 or fewer graduate is the same as 9 or more failing to graduate. This is 0.0074+0.0020+0.0005+0.0001=0.01 5.8 (a) mean =20*0.8=16. (b) standard deviation=square root(20*0.8*0.2)=1.789.

### What students are saying

• 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.
