# Combinatorics - math word problems - last page

Combinatorics is a part of mathematics that investigates the questions of existence, creation and enumeration (determining the number) of configurations.It deals with two basic tasks:

How many ways can we select certain objects

How many ways can we arrange certain objects

- Poisson distribution - daisies

The meadow behind FLD was divided into 100 equally large parts. Subsequently, it was found that there were no daisies in ten of these parts. Estimate the total number of daisies in the meadow. Assume that daisies are randomly distributed in the meadow. - Distribution 6283

The life of the bulbs has a normal distribution with a mean value of 2000 hours and a standard deviation of 200 hours. What is the probability that the light bulb will last for at least 2100 hours? - Intersect 5216

At how many points do ten lines intersect if no two are parallel? - Eight blocks

Dana had the task of saving the eight blocks of these rules: 1. Between two red cubes must be a different color. 2. Between two blue must be two different colors. 3. Between two green must be three different colors. 4. Between two yellow blocks must be fo - Book Store

The Mabini Book Store (MBS) is reducing the prices of Mathematics books for promotion. The store has 6 Algebra books, 6 Geometry books, and 5 Statistics books to be arranged on a shelf. Books of the same kind are to be placed beside each other. How many w - Probability 59493

Determine the probability of a random event out of 10 randomly selected bridge cards. There will be at least three aces. Note This is a team game, with 52 cards in the deck, of which four aces. - Sick days

In Canada, there are typically 261 working days per year. There is a 4.9% chance of an employee taking a sick day. What is the probability an employee will use 17 OR MORE sick days in a year? - A disease

A disease affects 10% of the individuals in a population and a sample of 100 peoples selected from the population. What is the probability of finding the disease in at least in at least 15 people? - Probability 37651

What is the probability that in a family with four children, there are: a) at least three girls b) at least one boy, If the probability of a boy is 0.51? - Records

Records indicate 90% error-free. If eight records are randomly selected, what is the probability that at least two records have no errors?

We apologize, but in this category are not a lot of examples.
