Part of the answer on the last one was cut off.. Here is the rest..Thank you

 

 

The table below shows the results of a survey in which 143 men and 145 women workers ages 25-64 were asked if the have at least one months income set aside for emergencies.

 

Men Women Total

Less than 1 come 66 84 150

One month's income or more 77 61 138

Total 143 145 288

 

Find the probability that a randomly selected worker has one mnt income or more set aside emergencies ( the probability is )_____ (round to the nearest thousandth)

 

Given that a randomly selected worker is a male, find the probaloity that the worker has less than one mnts income( the probability is )______ ( round to the nearest thousandth)

 

Given that a randomly selected worker has one mnts income or more, find the probability that the worker is a female(the probability is ) _____ ( round to the nearest thousandth)

 

Are the events" having less than one months's income saved" and being male? Independent or dependant

 

A researcher wishes to estimate with 99% confidence, the proportion of adults who have high speed internet access. Her estimate must be accurate within 3% of the proportion.

 

What is the minimum sample size needed using a prior study that found that 54% of the responde4nts said they have high-speed internet access?

 

N_ ( round up to the nearest whole number )

 

 

What is the minimum sample size needed assuming that no preliminary estimate is available ?

Decide if the situation involves permutations, combinations or neither. Explain your reasoning.

The number of ways 17 ppl can line up in a row for concert tickets.

Choose the correct ans.

1. Permutations. The older of the 17 people in line matters

2. Neither. A line of peole is neither an ordered arrangement of objects, nor a selection of objects from a group of objects

3. Combinations. The order of the 17 ppl in line does not matter.

 

The responses of a sample of 1010 ppl who were asked if the air quality in their community is better or worse than it was 10 yrs ago are shown below. Find the mean, median, and mode

Researchers conducted experiments with trees. Listed below are weights of trees given no fertilizer and trees treated with fertilizer and irrigation.

Find the range, variance and std bdev for each two samples, them compare the two sets.

Does there appear to be a difference between the two styd dev?

Expert:  muvee replied 8 years ago.

Correction for #5

P(one month income or more)=138/288=0.79

P(less than 1 month income|male)=P(male and less than one month income)/P(male)=66/150=0.44

P(female| 1 month income or more)=P(female and one month income or more)/P(1 month income or more)=61/138=0.442
events" having less than one months's income saved" and being male are dependant

#8. median is same

mean is same

 

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Are you sure beacuse the answer should be rounded to the thousandth
Expert:  muvee replied 8 years ago.

a typo:

the first result should be 0.479, not 0.79. Others are correct. I am sure.

Omgsh, allot of these were incorrect... thanks for help anyways
Expert:  muvee replied 8 years ago.
I think many of them are rounding problems. So when you compare it with software answer, it cannot 100% match.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Yea, i think so.
Expert:  muvee replied 8 years ago.
I typed so much in order to make oyu understand the steps to solve the questions, so final result is not as important as process.

Are you working on the online statistical questions, not homework by hand?

Yes, I am working these statistical problems online!

Expert:  muvee replied 8 years ago.
ok, that why even a samll rounding error will cause the entire answer be wrong.
