Theoretical probabilities: From the given table of theoretical distribution values, P(X=3)=0.2503. Now, P(1<X<4)
=P(2X3)
=P(X=2)+P(X=3)
=0.2816+0.2503
=0.5319.
Thus,P(1<X<4)=0.5319. Again, P(X8)
=P(X=8)+P(X=9)+P(X=10)
=0.0004+0.00003+0.000001
=0.000431. Thus, the P(X8)=0.000431. Probabilities from Organize the Data section: The probability (P) can be defined as the relative frequency (RF) in the long run. From the given image of the histogram, it appears that the length of the bar corresponding to the horizontal axis value 3, is approximately 0.25 on the vertical axis. Thus, RF(X=3)0.25. Now, RF(1<X<4)
=RF(2X3)
=RF(X=2)+RF(X=3). From the histogram, the length of the bar corresponding to the horizontal axis value 3 is somewhere between vertical axis values 0.25 and 0.3, being slightly closer to 0.3. Thus, it can be said that, RF(X=2)0.28. As a result, RF(1<X<4)
0.28+0.25
=0.53.
Thus,RF(1<X<4)0.53. Again, RF(X8)
=RF(X=8)+RF(X=9)+RF(X=10). From the histogram, it appears that the length of the bar for each of the horizontal axis values 8, 9, and 10 is 0. Thus, the RF(X8)0. Discussion Question 1. The probability, P(X=3)=0.5319 is approximately equal to the relative frequency likely to be from the simulation distribution, RF(X=3)=0.53, when rounded to two decimal places. The probability, P(1<X<4)=0.2503 is approximately equal to the corresponding relative frequency likely to be from the simulation distribution, RF(1<X<4)=0.25, when rounded to two decimal places. The probability, P(X8)=0.000431 is approximately equal to the relative frequency likely to be from the simulation distribution, RF(X8)=0, when rounded to three decimal places. These are some of the similarities between the graph of likely to be the simulation distribution, and the theoretical distribution.

Aurora is planning to participate in an event at her school's field day that requires her to complete tasks at various stations in the fastest time possible. To prepare for the event, she is practicing and keeping track of her time to complete each station. The x-coordinate is the station number, and the y-coordinate is the time in minutes since the start of the race that she completed the task. (1,3),(2,6),(3,12),(4,24)
Part A: Is this data modeling an algebraic sequence or a geometric sequence? Explain your answer.
Part B: Use a recursive formula to determine the time she will complete station 5.
Part C: Use an explicit formula to find the time she will complete the 9th station.

Testing for a Linear Correlation. In Exercises 13–28, construct a scatterplot, and find the value of the linear correlation coefficient r. Also find the P-value or the critical values of r from Table A-6. Use a significance level of α=0.05. Determine whether there is sufficient evidence to support a claim of a linear correlation between the two variables. (Save your work because the same data sets will be used in Section 10-2 exercises.) Lemons and Car Crashes Listed below are annual data for various years. The data are weights (metric tons) of lemons imported from Mexico and U.S. car crash fatality rates per 100,000 population [based on data from “The Trouble with QSAR (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace Fallacy),” by Stephen Johnson, Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, Vol. 48, No. 1]. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a linear correlation between weights of lemon imports from Mexico and U.S. car fatality rates?

Learning math The Core Plus Mathematics Project (CPMP) is an innovative approach to teaching Math- ematics that engages students in group investigations and mathematical modeling. After field tests in 36 high schools over a three-year period, researchers compared the performances of CPMP students with those taught using a traditional curriculum. In one test, students had to solve applied Algebra problems using calculators. Scores for 320 CPMP students were compared to those of a control group of 273 students in a traditional Math pro- gram. Computer software was used to create a confidence interval for the difference in mean scores. (Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 31, no. 3[2000]) Conf level: 95% Variable: Mu(CPMP) – Mu(Ctrl) Interval: (5.573, 11.427) a) What’s the margin of error for this confidence interval? b) If we had created a 98% CI, would the margin of error be larger or smaller?c) Explain what the calculated interval means in context. d) Does this result suggest that students who learn Mathematics with CPMP will have significantly higher mean scores in Algebra than those in traditional programs? Explain.
