Question 6. Compute the chance that the monkey types the letter "e" at least once in the 11 strikes. Call it e_chance . Use algebra and type in an arithmetic equation that Python can evalute. BEGIN QUESTION name: q2_6 manual: false [16]: e_chance = 1 - ( 25/26 ) **11 #SOLUTION e_chance [16]: 0.35041906843673165 5
Question 7. Do you think that a computer simulation is more or less effective to estimate e_chance compared to when we tried to estimate datascience_chance this way? Why or why not? (You don’t need to write a simulation, but it is an interesting exercise.) BEGIN QUESTION name: q2_7 manual: true
1.3 3. Sampling Basketball Players This exercise uses salary data and game statistics for basketball players from the 2014-2015 NBA season. The data was collected from Basketball-Reference and Spotrac . Run the next cell to load the two datasets.
Question 1. We would like to relate players’ game statistics to their salaries. Compute a table called full_data that includes one row for each player who is listed in both player_data and salary_data . It should include all the columns from player_data and salary_data , except the "PlayerName" column. BEGIN QUESTION name: q3_1 manual: false [3]: full_data = player_data . join( 'Name' , salary_data, 'PlayerName' ) #SOLUTION full_data [3]: Name | Age | Team | Games | Rebounds | Assists | Steals | Blocks | Turnovers | Points | Salary A.J.

From this perspective, a very crude measure of a player’s value to their team is the number of points the player scored in a season for every \$1000 of salary ( Note : the Salary column is in dollars, not thousands of dollars). For example, Al Horford scored 1156 points and has a salary of \$12 million. This is equivalent to 12,000 thousands of dollars, so his value is 1156 12000 .
