STAT 400 Fall 2011 Version C Name ANSWERS . Quiz 1 (10 points) Be sure to show all your work; your partial credit might depend on it. No credit will be given without supporting work. 1. On any given day, the parents in a certain family remember to feed the family dog with probability 0.80. The children remember to feed the dog with probability 0.55. Assume independence. a) (3) Find the probability that on a given day either the parents or the children (or both) would remember to feed the dog. P( Parents OR Children ) = P( Parents ) + P( Children ) – P( Parents AND Children ) = 0.80 + 0.55 – 0.80 × 0.55 = 0.91 . OR P( Parents OR Children ) = 1 – P( nobody ) = 1 – 0.20 × 0.45 = 0.91 . b) (3) Find the probability that the dog would get fed exactly once on a given day. P( Parents only ) + P( Children only ) = 0.80 × 0.45 + 0.20 × 0.55 = 0.47 .

What is the probability that the keys were left in the ignition? P(Keys) = 0.10, P(Keys ' ) = 1 -0.10 = 0.90. P(Stolen Keys) = 0.042. P(Stolen Keys ' ) = 0.002. Need P(Keys Stolen) = ?
