Given:
Number of freshmen = 14
Number of sophomores = 21
Number of juniors = 9
Number of seniors = 1
Formula Used:
Let E denote the event of the Professor selecting the senior to answer a question and S denote the sample space. Then, P(E) denotes the probability that E occurs. The probability is given by,
P(E)=n(E)n(S)
Where, n(E) denotes the number of elements in E and n(S) denotes the number of elements in S.
Calculation:
Calculate the total number of students enrolled in the college algebra class.
Total number of students enrolled in the college algebra class = 14+21+9+1=45
The probability that the Professor randomly selects the senior to answer a question is given by,
P(E)=n(E)n(S)
=Number of seniors in class/Total number of students in class
=1450.0222

asked 2022-05-26
I'm in highschool and just started integration. I found the following problem in an old question paper and I find it very challenging.
0 1 x 2 2 x + 1 d x
so I simplified it algebraically to
0 1 ( x 1 ) 2 d x
which of course is
0 1 | x 1 | d x
as the absolute value is a linear function over x [ 0 , ) so I proceed to evaluate it as x 2 / 2 x for upper limit 1 and lower limit 0 which is ( ( 1 ) 2 / 2 1 ) ( 0 0 ) and equals 1 2 , but according to wolfram alpha it is 1 2 .
Please explain at beginner level.
