To calculate: The probability that a student chosen randomly from the class is not going to college and on the honor roll if the number of students in a high school graduating class is 128, out of which 52 are on the honor roll, and out of these, 48 are going to college. The number of students who are not on the honor roll is 76, out of these 56 are going to college.

Calculation:
Consider the total number of students in the class to be 128.
Therefore, \(\displaystyle{n}{\left({S}\right)}={128}\).
Compute the number of students who are on the honor roll and not going to college.
\(\displaystyle{n}{\left({E}\right)}={56}-{48}={4}\)
Compute the probability of event E by dividing the number of outcomes of an event by the number of outcomes of sample space.
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({E}\right)}={\frac{{{n}{\left({E}\right)}}}{{{n}{\left({S}\right)}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{{4}}}{{{128}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{{1}}}{{{32}}}}\)
Therefore, the probability that a student is on the honor roll and not going to college is \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{1}}}{{{32}}}}\).

Is there a relationship between gender and relative finger length? To find out, we randomly selected 452 U.S. high school students who completed a survey. The two-way table summarizes the relationship between gender and which finger was longer on the left hand (index finger or ring finger).
\(\begin{array} {lc} & \text{Gender} \ \text {Longer finger} & \begin{array}{l|c|r|r} & \text { Female } & \text { Male } & \text { Total } \\\hline \text { Index finger } & 78 & 45 & 123 \\\hline \text{ Ring finger } & 82 & 152 & 234 \\ \hline \text { Same length } & 52 & 43 & 95 \\ \hline \text { Total } & 212 & 240 & 452 \end{array}\ \end{array}\)
Suppose we randomly select one of the survey respondents. Define events R: ring finger longer and F: female. Given that the chosen student does not have a longer ring finger, what's the probability that this person is male? Write your answer as a probability statement using correct symbols for the events.

To calculate: The number of days after which, 250 students are infected by flu virus in the college campus containing 5000 students. If one student returns from vacation with contagious and long- lasting flu virus and spread of flu virus is modeled by \(\displaystyle{y}={\frac{{{5000}}}{{{1}+{4999}{e}^{{-{0.8}{t}}}}}},{t}\geq{0}\).
Where, yis the total number of students infected after days.

1. A researcher is interested in finding a 98% confidence interval for the mean number of times per day that college students text. The study included 144 students who averaged 44.7 texts per day. The standard deviation was 16.5 texts. a. To compute the confidence interval use a ? z t distribution. b. With 98% confidence the population mean number of texts per day is between and texts. c. If many groups of 144 randomly selected members are studied, then a different confidence interval would be produced from each group. About percent of these confidence intervals will contain the true population number of texts per day and about percent will not contain the true population mean number of texts per day. 2. You want to obtain a sample to estimate how much parents spend on their kids birthday parties. Based on previous study, you believe the population standard deviation is approximately \(\displaystyle\sigma={40.4}\) dollars. You would like to be 90% confident that your estimate is within 1.5 dollar(s) of average spending on the birthday parties. How many parents do you have to sample? n = 3. You want to obtain a sample to estimate a population mean. Based on previous evidence, you believe the population standard deviation is approximately \(\displaystyle\sigma={57.5}\). You would like to be 95% confident that your estimate is within 0.1 of the true population mean. How large of a sample size is required?

To calculate:To check if(f*g)(x)=(g*f)(x). Professor Harsh gave a test to his college algebra class and nobody got more than 80 points (out of 100) on the test. One problem worth 8 points had insufficient data, so nobody could solve that problem.
The professor adjusted the grades for the class by
a. Increasing everyone's score by 10% and
b. Giving everyone 8 bonus points
c. x represents the original score of a student
