Question

Cary is 88 years older than Dan. In 77 years the sum of their ages will be 7676. Find the age of each man now.

Cody is twice as old as Evan and six years ago the sum of their age was 66. Find the age of each boy now

Answer #1

a) Let the initial age of Cary be x and that of Dan be x + 88.

After 77 years, age of Cary = x + 77

Age of Dan = x + 88 + 77 = x + 166

Sum of their ages = x + 77 + x + 166 = 2x + 243

Given 2x + 243 = 7676

2x = 7433, x = 3716.5 years

Age of Cary = **3716.5 years**

Age of Dan = **3804.5 years**

b) Let age of Evan = x

Then age of Cody = 2x

Before 6 years, age of Evan = x - 6 , and age of Cody = 2x - 6

Sum of their ages = x - 6 + 2x - 6 = 3x - 12

Given the sum = 66.

3x - 12 = 66

3x = 78

x = 26

Age of Evan = x = **26 years**

Age of Cody = 2x = **52 years**

Randomly selected 2020 student cars (population 1) have ages
with a mean of 77 years and a standard deviation of 3.63.6 years,
while randomly selected 2222 faculty cars (population 2) have ages
with a mean of 55 years and a standard deviation of 3.73.7 years.
(For the purposes of this exercise, the two populations are assumed
to be normally distributed.)

While job opportunities for men and women are considerably more
balanced than they were 40 years ago, the career aspirations may
still differ. Is there a difference in majors chosen by men and
women? Using the sample of 200 MBA students (in the data file),
conduct a Chi Square Test of Independence to determine if one's
choice of major is independent of their gender. Use a .05
significance level.
