ANSWERED ### Let A represent having soup and let B represent having salad for lunch. Which statement is true? Having soup and salad for lunch are independent events because $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∣{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{P}{\left({B}∣{A}\right)}={P}{\left({B}\right)}$$. Having soup and salad for lunch are not independent because $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∣{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{P}{\left({B}∣{A}\right)}={P}{\left({B}\right)}$$. Having soup and salad are not independent events because $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∣{B}\right)}≠{P}{\left({A}\right)}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{P}{\left({B}∣{A}\right)}≠{P}{\left({B}\right)}$$. Having soup and salad for lunch are independent events because $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∣{B}\right)}≠{P}{\left({A}\right)}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{P}{\left({B}∣{A}\right)}≠{P}{\left({B}\right)}$$

ANSWERED ### When a British travelling company reduces fares of a particular trip from London to Nottingham. A small taxi can carry four passengers. The time between calls for tickets is exponentially distributed with a mean of 30 minutes. Assume that each call orders one ticket. What is the probability that the taxi is filled in less than 3 hours from the time of the fare reduction?

ANSWERED ### An analysis of variance of the yields of five different varieties of wheat, observed on one plot each at each of six different locations. The data from this randomized block design are listed here: $$\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline Varieties & Location 1& Location 2& Location 3& Location 4& Location 5& Location 6 \\ \hline A& 35.3& 31.0& 32.7& 36.8& 37.2& 33.1 \\ \hline B& 30.7& 32.2& 31.4& 31.7& 35.0& 32.7\\ \hline C& 38.2& 33.4& 33.6& 37.1& 37.3& 38.2\\ \hline D& 34.9& 36.1& 35.2& 38.3& 40.2& 36.0\\ \hline E& 32.4& 28.9& 29.2& 30.7& 33.9& 32.1\\ \hline \end{array}$$ a. Use the appropriate nonparametric test to determine whether the data provide sufficient evidence to indicate a difference in the yields for the five different varieties of wheat. Test using $$\alpha\alpha=.05$$. b. How do the analysis of variance F test compare with the test in part a? Explain.

ANSWERED ### A population of values has a normal distribution with $$\displaystyle\mu={198.8}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={69.2}$$. You intend to draw a random sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={147}$$. Find the probability that a sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={147}$$ is randomly selected with a mean between 184 and 205.1. $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({184}{<}{M}{<}{205.1}\right)}=$$? Write your answers as numbers accurate to 4 decimal places.

ANSWERED ### A shipment of 12 microwave ovens contains three defective units. A vending company has ordered four of these units, and because all are packaged identically, the selection will be random. What is the probability that: a) All four units are good? b) Exactly two units are good? c) At least two units are good?

ANSWERED ### There are 11 players in team A. It is known that four of them (call them high scoring) score a penalty with probability 0.8 each and the other seven (low-scoring) with probability 0.5 each. There is a penalty shoot-out with another team, team B (of 11 players), in which every player from each team takes exactly one shot, so that 22 shots are to be taken. Every player in team B scores with probability 0.64. The team that scores the most goals wins. Which team is expected to win? Justify your answer
