Let A denote the event that Lily goes to practice, and let B denote the event that rains. Then
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}\right)}={P}{\left({A}{\mid}{B}\right)}{P}{\left({B}\right)}+{P}{\left({A}{\mid}{B}^{{c}}\right)}{P}{\left({B}^{{c}}\right)}\)
(B* is the complementary event of B — here it is the event that it does not rain). Also,
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({B}\right)}={0.3}\Rightarrow{P}{\left({B}^{{c}}\right)}={1}-{P}{\left({B}\right)}={0.7}\)
Also, we are given that
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}{\mid}{B}\right)}={0.1}\)
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}{\mid}{B}^{{c}}\right)}={0.9}\)
Therefore,
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}\right)}={0.1}\cdot{0.3}+{0.9}\cdot{0.7}={0.66}\)

Here’s an interesting challenge you can give to a friend. Hold a $1 (or larger!) bill by an upper corner. Have a friend prepare to pinch a lower corner, putting her fingers near but not touching the bill. Tell her to try to catch the bill when you drop it by simply closing her fingers. This seems like it should be easy, but it’s not. After she sees that you have released the bill, it will take her about 0.25 s to react and close her fingers-which is not fast enough to catch the bill. How much time does it take for the bill to fall beyond her grasp? The length of a bill is 16 cm.

Justine works for an organization committed to raising money for Alzheimer’s research. From past experience, the organization knows that about 20% of all potential donors will agree to give something if contacted by phone. They also know that of all people donating, about 5% will give $100 or more. On average, how many potential donors will she have to contact until she gets her first $100 donor?

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.

A slingshot obeying Hook's law is used to launch pebbles verticallyinto the air. You observe that if you pull a pebble back 2.00 cmagainst the elastic band, the pebble goes 6.00 m high.
Assuming that air drag is negligible, how high will the pebble goif you pull it back 5.00 cm instead?
How far must you pull it back so it will reach 14.0 m?
If you pull a pebble that is twice as heavy back 2.00 cm, how highwill it go?

A wagon with two boxes of Gold, having total mass 300 kg, is cutloose from the hoses by an outlaw when the wagon is at rest 50m upa 6.0 degree slope. The outlaw plans to have the wagon roll downthe slope and across the level ground, and then fall into thecanyon where his confederates wait. But in a tree 40m from thecanyon edge wait the Lone Ranger (mass 75.0kg) and Tonto (mass60.0kg). They drop vertically into the wagon as it passes beneaththem. a) if they require 5.0 s to grab the gold and jump out, willthey make it before the wagon goes over the edge? b) When the twoheroes drop into the wagon, is the kinetic energy of the system ofthe heroes plus the wagon conserved? If not, does it increase ordecrease and by how much?

Sheila is in Ms. Cai's class . She noticed that the graph of the perimeter for the "dented square" in problem 3-61 was a line . "I wonder what the graph of its area looks like ," she said to her teammates .
a. Write an equation for the area of the "dented square" if xx represents the length of the large square and yy represents the area of the square.
b. On graph paper , graph the rule you found for the area in part (a). Why does a 1st−quadrant graph make sense for this situation? Are there other values of xx that cannot work in this situation? Be sure to include an indication of this on your graph, as necessary.
c. Explain to Sheila what the graph of the area looks like.
d. Use the graph to approximate xx when the area of the shape is 20 square units.
