The next three questions refer to the following information:

In a survey at Kirkwood Ski Resort the following information was recorded:

Sport participation by age
0 – 10 11 - 20 21 - 40 40+
Ski 10 12 30 8
Snowboard 6 17 12 5

Suppose that one person from of the above was randomly selected.

Find the probability that the person was a skier or was age 11 – 20.

77 100 size 12{ { { size 8{"77"} } over { size 8{"100"} } } } {}

Find the probability that the person was a snowboarder given he/she was age 21 – 40.

12 42 size 12{ { { size 8{"12"} } over { size 8{"42"} } } } {}

Explain which of the following are true and which are false.

  • Sport and Age are independent events.
  • Ski and age 11 – 20 are mutually exclusive events.
  • P ( Ski and age 21 40 ) < P ( Ski age 21 40 ) size 12{P \( ital "Ski"+ ital "age""21" - "40" \)<P \( ital "Ski" \lline ital "age""21" - "40" \) } {}
  • P ( Snowboard or age 0 10 ) < P ( Snowboard age 0 10 ) size 12{P \( ital "Snowboardorage"0 - "10" \)<P \( ital "Snowboard" \lline ital "age"0 - "10" \) } {}
  • False
  • False
  • True
  • False

The average length of time a person with a broken leg wears a cast is approximately 6 weeks. The standard deviation is about 3 weeks. Thirty people who had recently healed from broken legs were interviewed. State the distribution that most accurately reflects total time to heal for the thirty people.

N ( 180 , 16 . 43 ) size 12{N \( "180","16" "." "43" \) } {}

The distribution for X size 12{X} {} is Uniform. What can we say for certain about the distribution for X ¯ size 12{ {overline {X}} } {} when n = 1 size 12{n=1} {} ?

  • The distribution for X ¯ size 12{ {overline {X}} } {} is still Uniform with the same mean and standard dev. as the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .
  • The distribution for X ¯ size 12{ {overline {X}} } {} is Normal with the different mean and a different standard deviation as the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .
  • The distribution for X ¯ size 12{ {overline {X}} } {} is Normal with the same mean but a larger standard deviation than the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .
  • The distribution for X ¯ size 12{ {overline {X}} } {} is Normal with the same mean but a smaller standard deviation than the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .

A

The distribution for X size 12{X} {} is uniform. What can we say for certain about the distribution for X size 12{ Sum {X} } {} when n = 50 size 12{n=50} {} ?

  • The distribution for X size 12{ Sum {X} } {} is still uniform with the same mean and standard deviation as the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .
  • The distribution for X size 12{ Sum {X} } {} is Normal with the same mean but a larger standard deviation as the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .
  • The distribution for X size 12{ Sum {X} } {} is Normal with a larger mean and a larger standard deviation than the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .
  • The distribution for X size 12{ Sum {X} } {} is Normal with the same mean but a smaller standard deviation than the distribution for X size 12{X} {} .

C

The next three questions refer to the following information:

A group of students measured the lengths of all the carrots in a five-pound bag of baby carrots. They calculated the average length of baby carrots to be 2.0 inches with a standard deviation of 0.25 inches. Suppose we randomly survey 16 five-pound bags of baby carrots.

State the approximate distribution for X ¯ size 12{ {overline {X}} } {} , the distribution for the average lengths of baby carrots in 16 five-pound bags. X ¯ ~ size 12{ {overline {X}} "~" } {}

N ( 2 , .25 16 ) size 12{N \( { { size 8{2 "." "25"} } over { size 8{ sqrt {"16"} } } } \) } {}

Explain why we cannot find the probability that one individual randomly chosen carrot is greater than 2.25 inches.

Find the probability that x ¯ size 12{ {overline {x}} } {} is between 2 and 2.25 inches.

The next three questions refer to the following information:

At the beginning of the term, the amount of time a student waits in line at the campus store is normally distributed with a mean of 5 minutes and a standard deviation of 2 minutes.

Find the 90th percentile of waiting time in minutes.

7.6

Find the median waiting time for one student.

5

Find the probability that the average waiting time for 40 students is at least 4.5 minutes.

fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
