Hello, and thanks for the question.

 

Answers are as follows:

1. Probability can't be expressed as a negative number.

2. Probability can't be expressed as greater than 1.

3. Probability can't be expressed as greater than 100%.

3a. Yes, probability can be expressed as a decimal fraction that is ≥ 0 and ≤ 1.

4. Sample space is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. All outcomes are equally likely.

5. 4/6 = 2/3 or 66.67%

6. 2/6 = 1/3 or 33.33%

7. Yes they are independent. P(1 on green die and 3 on red die) = 1/6 *1/6 =1/36.

8.

a. P(A') U P(B)

b. P(B|A) = P(A^B)/P(A)

c. P(A|B) = P(A^B)/P(B)

d. P(A) ^ P(B')

e. P(A) ^ P(B)

 

Hope this helps!

I was also struggling with this question I had.

24. are customers more loyal in the east or west? the columns represent length of customer loyalty (in years) at a primary supermarket. The rows represent regions of the united states.

east: 32 54 59 112 77 118 452
midwest: 31 68 68 120 63 173 523
south: 53 92 93 158 106 158 660
west: 41 56 67 78 45 86 373
columntotal:157 270 287 468 291 535 2008
