Hints on doing Probability problems: Feb 2, 2017 1. Defne your events: A, B, C, etc. (i.e., A = picking a number out o± a bag, B = it will rain today, C = a person has a disease) 2. Assign a probability to each o± the events using (1) physical properTes (number o± ±aces on a die), (2) past per±ormance (weather, last year’s ba²ng average), or (3) a guess. (i.e. P(A) = 1/5, P(B) = 0.10, P(C) = 0.02) 3. Determine which mathemaTcal method(s) should be used to obtain the desired fnal probability a. AddiTon rule: P(A ᴜ B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B) b. CondiTonal probability: P(A|B) and P(B|A) P(A|B) * P(B) = P(A ∩ B) c. I± P(A ∩ B) = P(A)*P(B), then A and be are “independent” d. I± P(A ∩ B) = 0, then A and B are “mutually exclusive” e. A³er a marble (card, person, etc) is picked out o± a bag, is it put back in the bag be±ore the next pick (with replacement) or is it set aside and no longer used (without replacement)? ±. Binomial theorem: 1 = (p + q) n where each o± the n events is independent o± each other g. ´ree diagrams (i.e., ±or ±alse posiTve problems) h. Venn diagrams, when given P(A ᴜ B) and/or P(A ∩ B) i. CombinaTon ±ormula: n C k = n! k! ( n k ) ! j. 6x6 table ±or 2 dice problems k. ConTngency table l. Complement rule: P(~A) = 1 – P(A) m. For a distribuTon with P(x) (a probability distribuTon ±uncTon or PDF) μ = Σ x*P(x), σ 2 = Σ (x-μ) 2 * P(x)
STAT 200 - QUIZ 2A 2 NOT match the red Power ball numbered 1 to 26. Write your final answer in 1/p instead of the fraction p. For example, ¼ = 4. 0.10 = 10. a. What is the probability of picking 1 of the 5 winning white balls from the bag? b. What is the probability of picking 1 of the remaining 4 winning white balls from the bag? c. What is the probability of picking 1 of the remaining 3 winning white balls from the bag? d. What is the probability of picking 1 of the remaining 2 winning white balls from the bag? e. What is the probability of picking the last remaining winning white ball from the bag? f. What is the probability of NOT picking the winning red Power ball from another bag? (Note: The white balls and the red Power balls are in different bags. They are not in the same bag.) g. Using the multiplication rule, what is the probability of winning the Power ball 2 nd prize in 1/p? (Note: The Power ball ticket says the odds of winning are 1 out of 11,688,053.52. If you do not get something close to this number, then you did something wrong!) 4. (10 points) The probability that a person has a certain fatal disease is 2% of the population. There is a test for detecting this disease. If you have the disease, the test gives the correct result 97% of the time. If you do not have the disease, then the test gives the correct result 95% of the time. Fill in the following tree diagram.
