Using the following data compute the values for the “ x ” values Show your work 1. For the probability distribution in car sales consider the following table and determine the probability distribution for the number of cars sold per day Cars Sold/day (x) Frequency P(x) 0 40 x 1 100 x 2 142 x 3 66 x 4 36 x 5 30 x 6 26 x 7 20 x 8 16 x 9 14 x 10 8 x 11 2 x Total 500 What is the probability of a. Less than 4 cars will be sold? x b. At most 4 cars will be sold? x c. Exactly 4 cars will be sold? x d. More than 4 cars will be sold? x 2. Given the following information about motor vehicles, motor vehicle accidents and cost of repair for last year: # of registered motor vehicles 215,000,000 # of vehicles involved in an accident 21,300,000 Cost of accidents \$192,000,000,000 a. What is the probability that a randomly selected vehicle is involved in an accident? x A. 21.3/215 = 0.09907 b. What type of probability does this illustrate (classical, empirical, subjective)? Explain x B. Empirical (based on observation)
