A company sells light bulbs in packages of 20 and estimates that the mean number of defective light bulbs in a package is 0.5 with a standard deviation of 0.7. If a customer buys 12 packages, what are the expected value and standard deviation of the number of defective light bulbs? Assume that packages are independent of each other. ____9. Given independent random variables with means and standard deviations as shown, find the mean and standard deviation of the variable 3X - Y . Mean SD X 110 15 Y 150 15 ____10. Stan brings a bag of five different-colored marbles to his multiple-choice statistics test which has possible answers A through E for each question. What is the probability Stan will get at least a 40 percent on the 20-question test if he takes a marble from the bag at random to guess the answer for each question? A) 3% B) 1% C) 15% D) 20% E) 40%

None of the above ____12. A student wants to watch TV. She receives 6 stations, which are broadcasting separate shows on baseball, football, basketball, local news, national news, and international news. The student is too tired to check which channels the shows are playing, so she picks a channel at random. The events, S and N, are defined as follows: S = {she watches sports} N = {she watches news} Then, the events S and N are: A. independent events B. disjoint events C. simple events D. complementary events

### 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.

• 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.
