Solution Number of samples (n)=3
p(operated heavy mchinery while under the influence of alcohol) =0.28
q(not operated heavy mchinery while under the influence of alcohol)=1  p=1  0.28=0.72
a) P (all three have operated heavy machinery)=p3
=(0.28)3
=0.021952
Round to four decimals.
=0.0220
b) P (all three have operated heavy machinery) = ?
Use compliment rule,
P(at least have not operated heavy machinery)=1  p3
P(at least have not operated heavy machinery) =1  (0.28)3
P(at least have not operated heavy machinery) =1  0.021952
P(at least have not operated heavy machinery)=10.978048
Round to four decimals.
P(at least have not operated heavy machinery) =0.9780
=0.9780
c) P(none of the three have operated heavy machinery) =q3
=(0.72)3
=0.3732
d) P(at least have not operated heavy machinery) = ?
Use compliment rule,
P(at least one has operated heavy machinery) =1  P(none of the three have operated heavy machinery)
P(at least one has operated heavy machinery) =1  q3
P(at least one has operated heavy machinery) =1(0.72)3
P(at least one has operated heavy machinery) =1  0.3732248
P(at least one has operated heavy machinery) =1  0.626752
Round to four decimals.
P(at least one has operated heavy machinery) =0.6268
=0.6268

According to a study by Dr. John McDougall of his live-in weight loss program at St. Helena Hospital, the people who follow his program lose between 6 and 15 pounds a month until they approach trim body weight. Let's suppose that the weight loss is uniformly distributed. We are interested in the weight loss of a randomly selected individual following the program for one month. Give the distribution of X. Enter an exact number as an integer, fraction, or decimal.f(x)= where X.μ=σ=. Find the probability that the individual lost more than 8 pounds in a month.Suppose it is known that the individual lost more than 9 pounds in a month. Find the probability that he lost less than 13 pounds in the month.
