I need the following assignments answers.  The assignments and ebook chapters are below.

Answer the following questions in a Word document: Is the binomial distribution a discrete probability distribution or a continuous probability distribution? Explain. If you are tossing a fair coin 10 times, what is the probability of getting exactly 4 heads out of the 10 coin tosses? If you are tossing a fair coin 10 times, what is the probability of getting exactly 9 heads out of the 10 coin tosses? If you are tossing a fair coin 10 times, what is the probability of getting 4 OR 5 heads out of the 10 coin tosses? The probability that an archer hits a target on a given shot is .7. If Fve shots are Fred, Fnd the probability that the archer hits the target on three shots out of the Fve. The probability that an archer hits a target on a given shot is .7. If Fve shots are Fred, Fnd the probability that the archer doesn’t ever hit the target during the Fve shots. The probability that an archer hits a target on a given shot is .7. If Fve shots are Fred, Fnd the probability that the archer hits the target on all Fve shots.

Problem Set 1. Consider the experiment of tossing a fair coin four times. The coin has two possible outcomes, heads or tails. a. List the sample space for the outcomes that could happen when tossing the coin four times. For example, if all four coin tosses produced heads, then the outcome would be HHHH. b. If each outcome is equally likely, what is the probability that all four coin tosses result in heads? Notice that the complement of “all four heads” is “at least one tail.” Using this information, compute the probability that there will be at least one tail out of the four coin tosses. 2. Suppose you roll a single fair die and note the number rolled. a. What is the sample space for a single roll of a fair die? Are the outcomes equally likely? b. Assign probabilities to the outcomes in the sample space found in part (a). Do these probabilities add up to 1? Should they add up to 1? Why? c. What is the probability of getting a number less than 4 on a single roll? d. What is the probability of getting a 1 or a 2 on a single roll? 3. Suppose we are interested in studying movie ratings where movies get rated on a ±ve star scale. One star means the critic thought the movie was horrible, and ±ve stars means the critic thought it was one of the best movies of the year. Here is a frequency table for all the movies rated by this critic for the year: a. Using this information, if we chose a movie from this group at random, what is the probability that the movie received a: 1 star rating? 2 star rating? 3 star rating? 4 star rating? 5 star rating? b. Do the probabilities from part (a) add up to 1? Why should they? What is the sample space in this problem? 4. Given P(A) = 0.6 and P(B) = 0.3 a. If A and B are mutually exclusive events, compute P(A or B). b. If P(A and B) = 0.2, compute P(A or B). c. If A and B are independent events, compute P(A and B). d. If P(B|A) = .1, compute P(A and B). 5. Consider the following events for a college professor selected at random: A = the professor has high blood pressure B = the professor is over 50 years old Translate each of the following scenarios into symbols. For example, the probability a professor has high blood pressure would be P(A). a. The probability a professor has low blood pressure. 1 Copyright©2011 Cengage Learning.

Problem Set b. The probability a professor has high blood pressure and is over 50 years old. c. The probability a professor has high blood pressure or is over 50 years old. d. The probability a 40-year-old professor has high blood pressure. e. The probability a professor with high blood pressure is over 50 years old. f. The probability a professor has low blood pressure and is over 50 years old. 6. Suppose we did collect data by asking professors how old they were and measuring their blood pressure. The table below reFects the data collected based on these two variables: Low Blood Pressure High Blood Pressure Total 50 and Under 64 51 115 Over 50 31 73 104 Total 95 124 219 Let us use the following notation for events: U = 50 and under, O = over 50, L = low blood pressure and H = high blood pressure. a. Compute P(L), P(L|U) and P(L|O). b. Are the events L = low blood pressure and U = 50 and under independent? Why or why not? c. Compute P(L and U) and P(L and O). d. Compute P(H) and P(H|U). e. Are the events H = high blood pressure and O = over 50 independent? Why or why not? f. Compute P(L or U). 7. Ryan is a record executive for a hip hop label in Atlanta, Georgia. He has a new album coming out soon, and wants to know the best way to promote it, so he is considering many variables that may have an e±ect. He is considering three di±erent album covers that may be used, four di±erent television commercials that may be used, and two di±erent album posters that may be used. Determine the number of di±erent combinations he needs in order to test each album cover, television commercial, and album poster. 8. Which of the following are continuous variables, and which are discrete? a. Number of heads out of ²ve coin tosses b. Qualifying speed for the Daytona 500 in miles per hour c. Number of books needed for a literature class d. your weight when you wake up each morning 9. A number of books were reviewed for a history class based on the following scale from 1 to 5: 1=would not recommend the book, 2=cautious or very little recommendation, 3=little or no preference, 4=favorable/recommended book, 5=outstanding/signi²cant contribution.
