41 . As the degrees of freedom increase in an F distribution, the distribution becomes more nearly normal. Histogram F 2 is closer to a normal distribution than histogram F 1, so the sample displayed in histogram F 1 was drawn from the F 3,15 population, and the sample displayed in histogram F 2 was drawn from the F 5,500 population.

42 . Using the calculator function Fcdf, p -value = Fcdf(3.67, 1E, 3,50) = 0.0182. Reject the null hypothesis.

43 . Using the calculator function Fcdf, p -value = Fcdf(4.72, 1E, 4, 100) = 0.0016 Reject the null hypothesis.

13.4: test of two variances

44 . The samples must be drawn from populations that are normally distributed, and must be drawn from independent populations.

45 . Let σ M 2 = variance in math grades, and σ E 2 = variance in English grades.
H 0 : σ M 2 σ E 2
H a : σ M 2 > σ E 2

1 . Events A and B are:

  1. mutually exclusive.
  2. independent.
  3. mutually exclusive and independent.
  4. neither mutually exclusive nor independent.

  4. Answer choices b and c are both true.

Use the following information to answer the next two exercises: One hundred eighteen students were asked what type of color their bedrooms were painted: light colors, dark colors, or vibrant colors. The results were tabulated according to gender.

  2. 30 48
  3. 22 118
  4. 30 52

Use the following information to answer the next two exercises: We are interested in the number of times a teenager must be reminded to do his or her chores each week. A survey of 40 mothers was conducted. [link] shows the results of the survey.

x P ( x )
0 2 40
1 5 40
3 14 40
4 7 40
5 4 40

6 . Find the probability that a teenager is reminded two times.

  1. 8
  2. 8 40
  3. 6 40
  4. 2

7 . Find the expected number of times a teenager is reminded to do his or her chores.

  1. 15
  2. 2.78
  3. 1.0
  4. 3.13

Use the following information to answer the next two exercises: On any given day, approximately 37.5% of the cars parked in the De Anza parking garage are parked crookedly. We randomly survey 22 cars. We are interested in the number of cars that are parked crookedly.

8 . For every 22 cars, how many would you expect to be parked crookedly, on average?

  1. 8.25
  2. 11
  3. 18
  4. 7.5

9 . What is the probability that at least ten of the 22 cars are parked crookedly.

  1. 0.1263
  2. 0.1607
  3. 0.2870
  4. 0.8393

10 . Using a sample of 15 Stanford-Binet IQ scores, we wish to conduct a hypothesis test. Our claim is that the mean IQ score on the Stanford-Binet IQ test is more than 100. It is known that the standard deviation of all Stanford-Binet IQ scores is 15 points. The correct distribution to use for the hypothesis test is:

  1. Binomial
  2. Student's t
  3. Normal
  4. Uniform

Probability tells you the likelihood of an event happening. ... The higher the probability, the more likely it is to happen. Probability is a number or fraction between 0 and 1. A probability of 1 means something will always happen, and a probability of 0 means something will never happen...

Saying it's a number between zero and one means it is a fraction so you could remove "or fraction" from you definition.
wouldn't be correct to remove fractions, saying a number is justified as probabilities can also be decimals between 0 and 1.
Saying "a number" will include it being a decimal which are themselves fractions in another form.
I will simply say a probability is a number in the range zero to one, inclusive.
