(03) An arsenal contains several identical boxes of ammunition. The number of defective bullets per box has the following distribution. Y 0 1 2 3 P(y) 0.90 .07 0.027 0.003 What is the expected number of defective bullets per box in the arsenal? (5 points) (04) The expected number of radioactive particles passing by a counter every 2 milliseconds is 4.9. What is the expected number of radioactive particles passing a counter over a 6 millisecond time frame? (5 points) (05) Below is summary output for a test of hypothesis that tests to see if two variances from independent populations can be considered equal. State your conclusions at .05 level of significance. Assume samples came from normal populations. (5 points) Two Sample Variance results: σ 2 1 - variance of Pop'n 1 σ 2 2 - variance of Pop'n 2 H 0 : σ 2 1 / σ 2 2 = 1 H A : σ 2 1

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
