Customer Question

Question 1 of 40 2.5 Points
A die with 12 sides is rolled. What is the probability of rolling a number less than 11? Is this the same as rolling a total less than 11 with two six-sided dice? Explain.
A. 2/6
B. 3/6
C. 4/6
D. 5/6
Question 2 of 40 2.5 Points

A. 0.250
B. 0.490
C. 0.240
D. 0.160
Question 3 of 40 2.5 Points

A. 32/132
B. 25/66
C. 50/132
D. 82/132
Question 4 of 40 2.5 Points
In the first series of rolls of a die, the number of odd numbers exceeded the number of even numbers by 5. In the second series of rolls of the same die, the number of odd numbers exceeded the number of even numbers by 11. Determine which series is closer to the 50/50 ratio of odd/even expected of a fairly rolled die.
A. The second series is closer because the difference between odd and even numbers is greater than the difference for the first series.
B. The first series is closer because the difference between odd and even numbers is less than the difference for the second series.
C. Since 1/2 > 1/5 > 1/11, the first series is closer.
D. The series closer to the theoretical 50/50 cannot be determined unless the total number of rolls for both series is given.
Question 5 of 40 2.5 Points
Joe dealt 20 cards from a standard 52-card deck, and the number of red cards exceeded the number of black cards by 8. He reshuffled the cards and dealt 30 cards. This time, the number of red cards exceeded the number of black cards by 10. Determine which deal is closer to the 50/50 ratio of red/black expected of fairly dealt hands from a fair deck and why.
A. The first series is closer because 1/10 is farther from 1/2 than is 1/8.
B. The series closer to the theoretical 50/50 cannot be determined unless the number of red and black cards for each deal is given.
C. The second series is closer because 20/30 is closer to 1/2 than is 14/20.
D. The first series is closer because the difference between red and black is smaller than the difference in the second series.

Hi,
I have all of the problems up to #30.
Some of these refer to graph that are not included in your posts. You should probably try posting these as a Word document so that those graphs will be included.

Hi,
Please be sure when entering answers that the question that you are answering exactly matches the problem that you sent.
There is nothing even remotely confusing or tricky about the problems that you listed, and the most probable reason for those to be marked as incorrect is that something in the problem changed between when you sent them to me and when you entered the answer.
If there is anything else that I can do to help, please don't hesitate to ask.
