Homework: Day 4

Consider rolling a standard dice once.

1) What is the probability of rolling a 6?

2) What is the probability of rolling an even number?

3) What is the probability of rolling a prime number?

4) What is the probability of rolling a number which is an integer?

Consider a standard 52 card deck. One card is drawn.

5) What is the probability of drawing a 4 of diamonds?

6) What is the probability of drawing a card which is a diamond?

7) What is the probability of drawing a card which is black?

8) What is the probability of drawing a 5?

9) What is the probability of drawing a card which is either black or red?

10) What is the probability of drawing a card which is either a spade or a heart?
Homework: Day 14

1) For a normal distribution with µ = 2354 points and σ = 468 points.


a) estimate the value of Q1 (rounded to the nearest point)

b) estimate the value of Q3 (rounded to the nearest point)

2) For a normal distribution with µ = $18 ,565 and Q1 = $15 ,514 , estimate the value of σ
(rounded to the nearest dollar).

3) A normal distribution has µ =110 points and σ = 12 points. Find the standardized value of
a) 128 points

b) 100 points

c) 110 points

d) 71 points

4) In a normal distribution with µ = 83 .2 gal and σ = 4.6 gal, find the data value corresponding
to each of the following standardized values
a) 2

b) -1.5

c) -0.43

d) 0

5) In a normal distribution with standard deviation σ = 15 , the data value 50 has a standardized
value of 3. Find the mean µ .

6) 2500 students take a college entrance exam. The scores on the exam have an approximately
normal distribution with mean µ = 52 points and standard deviation σ = 11 points.
a) estimate the average score on the exam.

b) estimate what percent of the students scored 52 points or more.

c) estimate what percent of the students scored between 41 and 63 points.

d) estimate what percent of the students scored 63 points or more.


Homework: Review

1) Do the problems below from your textbook on a separate sheet of paper.

p. 338 # 2, 6

2) The data below shows the number of absences for students in Ms. Corbin’s 4th block class.
Use the data to answer each question below.

0 4 1 2 3 0
1 4 1 1 0 3
0 4 1 1 7 0
2 0 0 0 0 2
1 0 1 0 2 0 3

a) Find the mean, median, mode, and standard deviation.

b) Draw a stem-n-leaf chart and then make a histogram on your own paper.

c) Draw a box-n-whiskers chart on your own paper.

3) For a normal distribution with µ = 81 .2 and σ = 12 .4 , estimate the value of Q1 and Q3

4) Packaged foods sold at supermarkets are not always the weight indicated on the package.
Variability always crops up in the manufacturing and packaging process. Suppose that the exact
weight of a “12-ounce” bag of potato chips is a random variable that has an approximately
normal distribution with µ =12 ounces and σ = 0.5 ounce. If a “12-ounce” bag of potato chips
is chosen at random what are the chances that

a) it weighs somewhere between 11 and 13 ounces?

b) it weighs somewhere between 12 and 13 ounces?

c) it weighs between 11.5 and 12.5 ounces?
