# 0.15 More probability: homework

 Page 1 / 5
This chapter covers additional principles of probability. After completing this chapter students should be able to: find the probability of a binomial experiment; find the probabilities using Bayes' Formula; find the expected value or payoff in a game of chance; find the probabilities using tree diagrams.

## Binomial probability

Do the following problems using the binomial probability formula.

A coin is tossed ten times. Find the probability of getting six heads and four tails.

0.2051

A family has three children. Find the probability of having one boy and two girls.

What is the probability of getting three aces(ones) if a die is rolled five times?

0.0322

A baseball player has a .250 batting average. What is the probability that he will have three hits in five times at bat?

A basketball player has an 80% chance of sinking a basket on a free throw. What is the probability that he will sink at least three baskets in five free throws?

0.9421

With a new flu vaccination, 85% of the people in the high risk group can go through the entire winter without contracting the flu. In a group of six people who were vaccinated with this drug, what is the probability that at least four will not get the flu?

A transistor manufacturer has known that 5% of the transistors produced are defective. What is the probability that a batch of twenty five will have two defective?

0.2305

It has been determined that only 80% of the people wear seat belts. If a police officer stops a car with four people, what is the probability that at least one person will not be wearing a seat belt?

What is the probability that a family of five children will have at least three boys?

0.5

What is the probability that a toss of four coins will yield at most two heads?

A telemarketing executive has determined that for a particular product, 20% of the people contacted will purchase the product. If 10 people are contacted, what is the probability that at most 2 will buy the product?

0.6778

To the problem: "Five cards are dealt from a deck of cards, find the probability that three of them are kings," the following incorrect answer was offered by a student.

$5C3{\left(1/\text{13}\right)}^{3}{\left(\text{12}/\text{13}\right)}^{2}$

What change would you make in the wording of the problem for the given answer to be correct?

## Bayes' formula

Use both tree diagrams and Bayes' formula to solve the following problems.

Jar I contains five red and three white marbles, and Jar II contains four red and two white marbles. A jar is picked at random and a marble is drawn. Draw a tree diagram below, and find the following probabilities.

1. $P\left(\text{marble is red}\right)$

2. $P\left(\text{It came from Jar II given that the marble drawn is white}\right)$

3. $P\left(\text{Red}\mid \text{Jar I}\right)$

3. 0.625

In Mr. Symons' class, if a person does his homework most days, his chance of passing the course is 90%. On the other hand, if a person does not do his homework most days his chance of passing the course is only 20%. Mr. Symons claims that 80% of his students do their homework on a regular basis. If a student is chosen at random from Mr. Symons' class, find the following probabilities.

1. $P\left(\text{the student passes the course}\right)$

2. $P\left(\text{the student did homework}\mid \text{the student passes the course}\right)$

3. $P\left(\text{the student passes the course}\mid \text{the student did homework}\right)$

where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?

What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?

If March sales will be up from February by 10%, 15%, and 20% at Place I, Place II, and Place III, respectively, find the expected number of hot dogs, and corn dogs to be sold
8. It is known that 80% of the people wear seat belts, and 5% of the people quit smoking last year. If 4% of the people who wear seat belts quit smoking, are the events, wearing a seat belt and quitting smoking, independent?
Mr. Shamir employs two part-time typists, Inna and Jim for his typing needs. Inna charges $10 an hour and can type 6 pages an hour, while Jim charges$12 an hour and can type 8 pages per hour. Each typist must be employed at least 8 hours per week to keep them on the payroll. If Mr. Shamir has at least 208 pages to be typed, how many hours per week should he employ each student to minimize his typing costs, and what will be the total cost?
