Problem 3: A box contains 10 balls of the following types: 3 are red and dotted 2 are gray and dotted 1 is red and striped 4 are gray and striped If you randomly select one ball, what is the probability that the ball is (a) dotted? (b) dotted, given that it is red? (c) dotted or red? Problem 4: Among the patients at a mental health clinic, 35% suffer from depression and 40% suffer from anxiety. A total of 28% of the patients suffer from both conditions. (a) Display this information in a Venn diagram. Use your Venn Diagram to determine what percent of the patients at this clinic …. (a) …suffer from depression but not anxiety. ________ (b) …suffer from neither depression nor anxiety. _____ Problem 5: Two socks are selected at random and removed in succession (without replacement) from a drawer containing 6 brown socks and 4 blue socks. Let Y represent the number of brown socks selected. Give the probability distribution for Y : Y = Probability = Support your probabilities by a well labeled tree diagram to the right:

Chapter 6: Probability and Simulation: The Study of Randomness Problem 6: The probability that a particular type of smoke detector will function properly and sound an alarm in the presence of smoke is 0.9. If there are two of these alarms in my home, what is the probability that at least one works in the presence of smoke? Problem 7: A manufacturer of airplane parts knows from past experience that the probability is 0.8 that an order will be ready for shipment on time, the probability is 0.6 that an order will be delivered on time, and the probability is 0.5 that an order will be ready for shipment and will be delivered on time. (a) Find the probability that an order will be delivered on time, given that it is ready for shipment on time. (b) Find the probability that a randomly selected order will be ready for shipment on time or will be delivered on time. Problem 8: A box contains 20 fuses, 17 good and 3 defective. Two fuses are drawn from the box with replacement . (a) What is the probability that both fuses are defective? (b) What is the probability that one fuse is good and one is defective? Problem 9: A recent survey asked 100 randomly selected adult Americans if they thought that women should be allowed to go into combat situations. Here are the results: Gender Yes No Male 32 18 Female 8 42 (a) Find the probability of a “Yes” answer, given that the person was a female. (b) Find the probability that the respondent was a male, given that the response was a “No.” Problem 10: Toss two balanced coins. Let A = head on the first toss, and let B = both tosses have the same outcome. Are events A and B independent? Explain your reasoning clearly. Problem 11: Parking for students at Central High School is very limited, and those who arrive late have to park illegally and take their chances at getting a ticket. Joey has determined that the probability that he has to park illegally and that he gets a parking ticket is 0.07. He recorded data last year and found that because of his perpetual tardiness, the probability that he will have to park illegally is 0.25.

    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.
