5. Find the indicated probability. Round to the nearest thousandth.
In a blood testing procedure, blood samples from 6 people are combined into one mixture. The mixture will only test negative if all the individual samples are negative. If the probability that an individual sample tests positive is 0.11, what is the probability that the mixture will test positive? (Points : 4)

9. Determine whether the given procedure results in a binomial distribution. If not, state the reason why.
Choosing 10 marbles from a box of 40 marbles (20 purple, 12 red, and 8 green) one at a time with replacement, keeping track of the number of red marbles chosen. (Points : 4)
Not binomial: there are more than two outcomes for each trial.
Procedure results in a binomial distribution.
Not binomial: the trials are not independent.
Not binomial: there are too many trials.

10. Assume that a procedure yields a binomial distribution with a trial repeated n times. Use the binomial probability formula to find the probability of x successes given the probability p of success on a single trial. Round to three decimal places.

12. Given the linear correlation coefficient r and the sample size n, determine the critical values of r and use your finding to state whether or not the given r represents a significant linear correlation. Use a significance level of 0.05.
r = 0.843, n = 5 (Points : 4)
Critical values: r = ±0.878, significant linear correlation
Critical values: r = ±0.950, no significant linear correlation
Critical values: r = 0.950, significant linear correlation
Critical values: r = ±0.878, no significant linear correlation
