Question

Of 35 houses, 20 have brick exterior. If 10 pancake houses are selected at random, what is the probability that greater than 3 (but not including 3) of the 10 have brick exterior?

Answer #1

let the total no of houses are 35 and no having brick exterior are 20 hence probability of selection a brick exterior house is 20/35=0.5714

if 10 houses randomly selected then

P(K>3) can also be said as 1-P(K<=3)

P(K>3)=1-{P(K=0)+P(K=1)+P(K=2)+P(K=3)

Now,

P(K>3)= 1-{0.0002+0.0028+0.0167+0.0594}

=1-0.0791

=0.9208

A
random sample of 20 houses selected from a city showed that the
mean size of these houses is 1850 square feet with a standard
deviation of 320 square feet. Assume that the sizes of all houses
in this city have an approximate normal distribution. The 95%
confidence interval for the variance of all house sizes in this
city is:

Researchers investigating the ages of houses selected a random
sample of houses in Whiting, Indiana and Franklin, Pennsylvania and
obtained the following summary statistics.
Whiting
Franklin
x1 = 61.8 yrs
x2 = 57.6 yrs
s1 = 5.9 yrs
s2 = 5.6 yrs
n1 = 20
n2 = 22
Can it be concluded that houses in Whiting are older on average
than in Franklin?
Estimate the P-value for a test of this claim.
0.01 < P-value < 0.025
0.02 < P-value...

6) The proportion of houses that have smoke detectors in Fort
Wayne is 70%. Suppose 10 houses are randomly selected.
a) Use the binomial distribution to find the probability that
exactly 5 houses will have smoke detectors.
b)Use the binomial distribution to find the probability that
eight or more houses will have smoke detectors.

In a certain neighborhood, 42% of the houses have a front porch.
Also, 23% of the houses have a front porch and an attached garage.
If a house is selected at random, what is the probability that the
house has an attached garage, given that it has a
front porch? Enter result rounded to 3 decimal places.

The profits of a mobile company are normally distributed with
Mean of R.O (20 x 10) and a standard deviation of R.O (20).
a. Find the probability that a randomly selected mobile has a
profit greater than R.O ((20x10) +10).
b. Any mobile phone which profit is greater than R.O ((20x10)
+10) is defined as expensive. Find the probability that a randomly
selected mobile has a profit greater than R.O ((20x10) +20) given
that it is expensive.
c. Half of...

Exercise 1.6. If 5 numbers are selected at random from the
set{1,2,....,20}, what is the probability that the smallest number
is larger than 6? a) when 5 numbers are ordered? b) when 5 numbers
are not ordered?

in
a class of 35 students, 13 are seniors, 10 are juniors, 9 are
sophomores, and 3 are freshmen. If four students are selected at
random from this class, what is the probability that all three are
freshmen are selected?

the mean height of women in a country (ages 20-29) is
63.8 inches. A random sample of 60 women in this age group is
selected. what is the probability that the mean height for the
sample is greater than 65 inches? assume ó ?=
2.85.
the probability that the mean height for the sample is
greater than 65 inches is

The mean height of women in a country (ages 20-29) is 63.8
inches. A random sample of 50 women in this age group is selected.
What is the probability that the mean height for the sample is
greater than 65 inches? Assume sigma=2.78.
The probability that the mean height for the sample is greater
than 65 inches is?
