### There is a water in two tank, tank a&b. The volume of tank a and b is 4:3. When 0.8 liter of water is added to tank A, there is twice much more water in tank A than tank b. When tank A is filled completely, it is 1/4 of tank b, how much more water to fill tank b to its rim?

### A flowerpot accidentally falls off the window of a condominium unit. Your unit is located below where the flowerpot had fallen. Your window measures to be 1.60 m tall, and the time it takes the flowerpot to move past your window is 0.150 s (from the top part to the bottom part of the window). How high from the top of your window did the flowerpot fell off?

ANSWERED ### X denotes a binomial random variable with parameters n and p. For each exercise, indicate which area under the appropriate normal curve would be determined to approximate the specified binomial probability. $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({X}={6}\right)}$$

Binomial probability
ANSWERED ### After being rejected for employment, Kim Kelly learns that the Bellevue Credit Company has hired only two women among the last 19 new employees. She also learns that the pool of applicants is very large, with an approximately equal number of qualified men as qualified women. Help her address the charge of gender discrimination by finding the probability of getting two or fewer women when 19 people are hired, assuming that there is no discrimination based on gender. (Report answer accurate to 8 decimal places).
