Question
A large urn in your kitchen is full of fruit. There are six apples, four oranges, and five pears. What percentage of the mixed fruit are apples? What percentage are not apples?

The urn contains 6 apples, 4 oranges, and 5 pears so there are 6+4+5=15 fruits in the urn. The percentage of the fruit that are apples is then $$\displaystyle\frac{{6}}{{15}}={0.4}={40}\%$$. The percentage that are not apples is then 100%-40%=60%

### Relevant Questions

Pete is making 8 identical fruit baskets as gifts. Each basket contains some apples and 12 oranges. Pete uses a total of 168 pieces of fruit to make the baskets. Determine the number of apples that are in each basket.

Would you rather spend more federal taxes on art? Of a random sample of $$n_{1} = 86$$ politically conservative voters, $$r_{1} = 18$$ responded yes. Another random sample of $$n_{2} = 85$$ politically moderate voters showed that $$r_{2} = 21$$ responded yes. Does this information indicate that the population proportion of conservative voters inclined to spend more federal tax money on funding the arts is less than the proportion of moderate voters so inclined? Use $$\alpha = 0.05.$$ (a) State the null and alternate hypotheses. $$H_0:p_{1} = p_{2}, H_{1}:p_{1} > p_2$$
$$H_0:p_{1} = p_{2}, H_{1}:p_{1} < p_2$$
$$H_0:p_{1} = p_{2}, H_{1}:p_{1} \neq p_2$$
$$H_{0}:p_{1} < p_{2}, H_{1}:p_{1} = p_{2}$$ (b) What sampling distribution will you use? What assumptions are you making? The Student's t. The number of trials is sufficiently large. The standard normal. The number of trials is sufficiently large.The standard normal. We assume the population distributions are approximately normal. The Student's t. We assume the population distributions are approximately normal. (c)What is the value of the sample test statistic? (Test the difference $$p_{1} - p_{2}$$. Do not use rounded values. Round your final answer to two decimal places.) (d) Find (or estimate) the P-value. (Round your answer to four decimal places.) (e) Based on your answers in parts (a) to (c), will you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis? Are the data statistically significant at level alpha? At the $$\alpha = 0.05$$ level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant. At the $$\alpha = 0.05$$ level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant. At the $$\alpha = 0.05$$ level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant. At the $$\alpha = 0.05$$ level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant. (f) Interpret your conclusion in the context of the application. Reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that the proportion of conservative voters favoring more tax dollars for the arts is less than the proportion of moderate voters. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that the proportion of conservative voters favoring more tax dollars for the arts is less than the proportion of moderate voters. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that the proportion of conservative voters favoring more tax dollars for the arts is less than the proportion of moderate voters. Reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that the proportion of conservative voters favoring more tax dollars for the arts is less than the proportion of moderate voters.
A new thermostat has been engineered for the frozen food cases in large supermarkets. Both the old and new thermostats hold temperatures at an average of $$25^{\circ}F$$. However, it is hoped that the new thermostat might be more dependable in the sense that it will hold temperatures closer to $$25^{\circ}F$$. One frozen food case was equipped with the new thermostat, and a random sample of 21 temperature readings gave a sample variance of 5.1. Another similar frozen food case was equipped with the old thermostat, and a random sample of 19 temperature readings gave a sample variance of 12.8. Test the claim that the population variance of the old thermostat temperature readings is larger than that for the new thermostat. Use a $$5\%$$ level of significance. How could your test conclusion relate to the question regarding the dependability of the temperature readings? (Let population 1 refer to data from the old thermostat.)
(a) What is the level of significance?

What assumptions are you making about the original distribution?

A gambling book recommends the following "winning strategy" for the game of roulette. It recommends that a gambler bet $1 onred. If red appears (which has probablity 18/38), then the gamblershould take her$1 profit and quit. If the gambler loses this bet (which has probablity 20/38 of occurring), she should make additional \$1 bets on red on each of the next two spins of the roulette wheel and then quite. Let X denote the gambler's winnings when she quites.
(a) Find P{X > 0}.
(b) Are you concinved that the strategy is indeed a "winning" strategy? Explain your answer.
(c) Find E[X].
