A random sample of 88 U.S. 11th- and 12th-graders was selected. The two-way table summarizes the gender of the students and their response to the question "Do you have allergies?" Suppose we choose a student from this group at random.

 Female  Male  Total  Yes 191534 No 243054 Total 434588
What is the probability that the student is female or has allergies?
(a)1988
(b)3988
(c)5888
(d)7788

DEFINITIONS
Complement rule
P(Ac)=P(not A)=1P(A)
General addition rule for any two events:
P(A or B)=P(A)+P(B)P(A and B)
SOLUTION
 Female  Male  Total  Yes 191534 No 243054 Total 434588
We note that the table contains information about 88 peoples (given in the bottom right corner of the table).
Moreover, 34 of the 88 people have allergies, becatise 34 is mentioned in the row Yes” and in the column *Total” of the table.
The probability is the number of favorable outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes:
P(Allergies)=# of favorable outcomes# of possible outcomes=3488 We note that 43 of the 88 people are female, becatise 43 is mentioned in the row * Total” and in the column *Female” of the given table.
P(Female)=# of favorable outcomes# of possible outcomes=4388 We note that 19 of the 88 people are females and have allergies, because 19 is mentioned in the row ” Yes” and in the column *Female” of the given table.
P( Allergies and Female)=# of favorable outcomes# of possible outcomes=1988
Use the general addition rule:
P( Allergies and Female)=P(Allergies)+P(Female)P( Allergies and Female)
=3488+43881988
=34+431988
=5888
Result: (c)5888

1. Who seems to have more variability in their shoe sizes, men or women?
a) Men
b) Women
c) Neither group show variability
d) Flag this Question
2. In general, why use the estimate of n1 rather than n in the computation of the standard deviation and variance?
a) The estimate n-1 is better because it is used for calculating the population variance and standard deviation
b) The estimate n-1 is never used to calculate the sample variance and standard deviation
c) n1 provides an unbiased estimate of the population and allows more variability when using a sample and gives a better mathematical estimate of the population
d) The estimate n-1 is better because it is use for calculation of both the population and sample variance as well as standard deviation.
