Sally has caught covid but doesn’t know it

2022-04-28

Sally has caught covid but doesn’t know it yet. She is testing herself with rapid antigen kits which have an 80% probability of returning a positive result for an infected person. For the purpose of this question you can assume that the results of repeated tests are independent. 

a) If sally uses 3 test kits what is the probability that at least one will return a positive result? 

b) In 3 tests, what is the expected number of positive results?

c) Sally has gotten her hands on more effective tests, these ones have a 90% probability of returning a positive result for an infected person. If she tested herself
twice with the new tests, how many positive results would she expect to see?

If I have the following Hypothese:

H1: Women tend to watch romantic films more than men 

Apparently it's a chi-square because I'm measuring relationships between expected frequency and Observed frequency and also because Gender is on the nominal level. But what if this is designed for a survey in which questions are on the nominal, Ordinal and interval level (Likert scale - differential sementic) will the outcome still be a Chi-square?

Proving that the set of units of a ring is a cyclic group of order 4
The set of units of Z10Z is {1,3,7,9}, how can I show that this group is cyclic?
My guess is that we need to show that the group can be generated by some element in the set, do I need to show that powers of some element can generate all elements in the other congruence classes?
For example 72=499±mod10, i.e. using 7 we can generate an element in the congruence class of 9, but can not generate 29 for example from any power of 7, so is it sufficent to say that an element is a generator if it generates at least one element in all other congruence classes?
