  • Suppose 4
    Suppose that 14% of all steel shafts produced by a certain process are nonconforming but can be reworked (rather than having to be scrapped). Consider a random sample of 200 shafts, and let X denote the number among these that are nonconforming and can be
  • Seeds
    From a box of spruce seeds with the germination of 80%, we randomly select 10 seeds and plant them. Find the median of the random variable: the number of germinating seeds.
  • A mountain climber
    A mountain climber plans to buy some rope to use as lifeline. Which of the following would be the better choice? Explain your choice. Rope A: Mean breaking strength:500lb; standard deviation of 100lb Rope B: Mean breaking strength: 500lb; standard deviati
  • Perfect cubes
    Suppose a number is chosen at random from the set (0,1,2,3,. .. ,202). What is the probability that the number is a perfect cube?
  • Sum on dice
    We have two dice. What is the greater likelihood of fall a total sum 7 or 8 ? (write 7, 8 or 0 if the probabilities are the same)?
