P(T or F but not both) = P(T) + P(F) – 2P(T and F) = 0.8 + 0.7 – 2(0.6) = 0.3 ANS__ 0.3 ________ 38. Given this information, are having a Facebook account and sending text messages independent or dependent? Justify using probabilities (not a discussion of teenagers and their behaviors.) Independent Dependent Why: P(T) * P(F) = (0.8)(0.7) = 0.56 P(T and F ) = 0.6 0.56 ≠ 0.6 (There are several other possible explanations) 39. Select 2 teenagers at random. What’s the chance that exactly one of them has a Facebook account? P(Exactly 1 Facebook) = 2P(F)P(F C ) = 2(0.7)(1-0.7) = 0.42 ANS__ 0.42 ________ Suppose Males and Females from a certain population take a survey and are asked whether or not they eat breakfast in the mornings. Suppose 60% of the males do, and 70% of the females do. Also suppose there are 55% males and 45% females in the population. 40. Make a two-way table and fill in all the probabilities (including those in the margins). Use proper labeling telling us which variables you have, and what their possible values are. B – Eats Breakfast M – Male F – Female P(B|M) = 0.6 P(B|F) = 0.7 P(M) = 0.55 P(F) = 0.45 P(B and F) = P(B|F)P(F) = (0.7)(0.45) = 0.315 P(B and M) = P(B|M)P(M) = (0.6)(0.55) = 0.33 P(B C and F) = P(F) – P(B and F) = 0.45 – 0.315 = 0.135 P(B C and M) = P(M) – P(B and M) = 0.55 – 0.33 = 0.22 B B C F 0.315 0.135 0.45 M 0.33 0.22 0.55 0.645 0.355 1 10

    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.
