Question 8. A company that makes cartons finds that the probability of producing a carton with a puncture is
0.05
,
.
Answer parts (a) and (b) below.
(a) Are the events "selecting a carton with a puncture" and "selecting a carton with a smashed corner" mutually exclusive? Explain.
A.
Yes, a carton can have a puncture and a smashed corner.
B.
Yes, a carton cannot have a puncture and a smashed corner.
C.
No, a carton can have a puncture and a smashed corner.
D. No, a carton cannot have a puncture and a smashed corner.
(b) If a quality inspector randomly selects a carton, find the probability that the carton has a puncture or has a smashed corner.
The probability that a carton has a puncture or a smashed corner is
.
(Type an integer or a decimal. Do not round.)
Question 9 Use the frequency distribution, which shows the number of American voters (in millions) according to age, to find the probability that a voter chosen at random is in the 18 to 20 years old age range.
Response Frequency
18 to 20 4.4
21 to 24 8.2
25 to 34 23.5
35 to 44 25.6
45 to 64 54.5
65 or over 28.2
The probability that a voter chosen at random is in the 18 to 20 years old age range is
Question 10. Determine whether the distribution is a discrete probability distribution.
x P(x)
0 0.00
1 0.00
2 1.00
3 0.00
4 0.00
A yes because the probabilities sum to 1 and are all bet 0 and 1 inclusive
B no, because some of the probabilities have values greater tjam 1 and less than o
C yes, because the distribution is symmetric
D no, because the total probability is not equal to 1.
