The difference between a statistic and a parameter is that statistic describe a sample while a parameter describes an entire population.

Jones figures that the total number of thousands of miles that a used auto can be driven before it would need to be junked is an exponential random variable with parameter \(\displaystyle\frac{{1}}{{20}}\).
Smith has a used car that he claims has been driven only 10,000 miles.
If Jones purchases the car, what is the probability that she would get at least 20,000 additional miles out of it?
Repeat under the assumption that the lifetime mileage of the car is not exponentially distributed but rather is (in thousands of miles) uniformly distributed over (0, 40).

The game of Clue involves 6 suspects, 6 weapons, and 9 rooms.
One of each is randomly chosen and the object of the game is to guess the chosen three.
(a) How many solutions are possible? In one version of the game, the selection is made and then each of the players is randomly given three of the remaining cards.
Let S, W, and R be, respectively, the numbers of suspects, weapons, and rooms in the set of three cards given to a specified player. Also, let X denote the number of solutions that are possible after that player observes his or her three cards.
(b) Express X in terms of S, W, and R.
(c) Find E[X]

A mail-order company advertises that it ships 90% of its orders within three working days.
You select an SRS of 100 of the 5000 orders received in the past week for an audit.
The audit reveals that 86 of these orders were shipped on time.
If the company really ships 90% of its orders on time, what is the probability that the proportion in an SRS of 100 orders is 0.86 or less?

a) There are classes of 234 students, find the mean and standart deviation for the number born on the 4th of July. Ignore leap years.The value of the mean is \(\displaystyle\mu\) = (Round to six decimal places as needed)
Yhe value of the standart deviation is \(\displaystyle\sigma\) = (Round to six decimal places as needed)
b) In a class of 234 students, would two be an unusually high number who were born on the 4th of July? Would 2 be an unussually high number of individuals who were born on the 4th of July?
A. This result is unlikely because 2 is within the range of usual values.
B. No, because 2 is within the range of usual values.
C. Yes, because 2 is greater than the maximum usual value.
D. Yes, because 2 is below the minimum usual value.
