Multiple Choice (3 points each) 1) The median waiting time for patients to see a doctor at a local emergency room is much smaller than the mean waiting time. Which of the following is most consistent with this information (circle one): a. A histogram of the waiting times would be symmetric. b. A histogram of the waiting times would be left-skewed. c. A histogram of the waiting times would be right-skewed. 2) A student is studying very hard in a fluid dynamics course, but he knows he will either pass or not pass. Suppose this student, Jack Daniels, has a probability of 0.90 for studying the night before the exam. Also, he has a probability of 0.75 for passing the exam. If the probability of passing the exam, given that he studied the night before, is 0.82, what may you conclude? 3) If Steve and Doug Butabi want to find the proportion of people who believe they can move their heads graciously, how large of a sample size is required so that the margin of error is at most 2 percentage points with a 95% confidence level? 4) In the Land of Chocolate, three friends (Hershey, Nougat, and B.C.) all have to make tough decisions about the next phase of their life where they have ONLY two options: going to college or working in the nearby sugar mines of Dos Catorce. Suppose the following probabilities are true: P (Hershey goes to college) = 0.2 = P (Nougat works at the sugar mines), P (B.C. goes to college) = 0.7. If each of them makes their choice independent of the others, what is the probability of Hershey and Nougat going to college while B.C. works at the sugar mines?

    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.
