Question 4
1. Find the indicated probability. Round to the nearest thousandth. A study conducted at a certain college shows that 55% of the school's graduates find a job in their chosen field within a year after graduation.

Question 9
1. Provide an appropriate response. In a game, you have a 1/36 probability of winning $94 and a 35/36 probability of losing $8. What is your expected value?
$10.39

Question 10
1. Determine whether the given procedure results in a binomial distribution. If not, state the reason why. Rolling a single die 57 times, keeping track of the numbers that are rolled.
Not binomial: there are too many trials.
Not binomial: the trials are not independent.
Procedure results in a binomial distribution.
Not binomial: there are more than two outcomes for each trial.
Question 11
1. 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. n = 5, x = 2, p = 0.70

Question 15
1. Use the Poisson model to approximate the probability. Round your answer to four decimal places. Suppose the probability of a major earthquake on a given day is 1 out of 15,000. Use the Poisson distribution to approximate the probability that there will be at least one major earthquake in the next 2000 days.

Question 16
1. 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 = 0.523, n = 25
Critical values: r = ±0.487, significant linear correlation
Critical values: r = ±0.396, no significant linear correlation
Critical values: r = ±0.396, significant linear correlation
Critical values: r = ±0.487, no significant linear correlation

Hi,

Welcome! Thank you for using the site. I'll be happy to help you with these problems.

It appears that problem #18 has been cut off before the end of the data set, and the answer choices are not shown. There are also problems which refer to graphs and tables that are not shown in your post.

If you have these questions in a Word document or a PDF file, it would be helpful if you could post that file. You can use the "paper clip" button on the toolbar (if it is showing in your browser) to attach a file to your reply. Alternatively, you can upload the file to a file-sharing website such as mediafire.com or sendspace.com. Both of those sites are free and very easy to use. Once you have the file uploaded, simply copy the sharing link and then paste it into your reply.

In the meantime, I'll get started on these and will do the best that I can with the available information.

Thanks,

Ryan
