Question

A test consists of 10 multiple choice questions, each with five possible answers, one of which is correct. To pass the test a student must get 60% or better on the test. If a student randomly guesses, what is the probability that the student will pass the test? Please show work

Answer #1

Sample size = n = 10

Probability of correct answers = p = 1/5 = 0.2

To pass the test a student must get 60% or better on the test.

That is 10*0.60 = 6

That is we have to find P(X 6)

P(X 6) = P(6 X 10) = 1 - P( 0 X 5)

Using Ti-84 calculator.

P(X 6) = 1-binomcdf(10,0.2,5)

P(X 6) = 0.0064

**The probability that the student will pass the test is
0.0064**

MC1701: A test consists of 10 multiple choice questions, each
with five possible answers, one of which is correct. To pass, a
student must get at least 6 correct on the test. If a student
randomly guesses at every question, what is the probability that
the student fails the test?
a.
2.6%
b.
20%
c.
80%
d.
97.4%
e.
99.4%
f.
None of these

A quiz consists of 100 multiple choice questions. Each question
has 4 possible answers (A-D) and only one answer is correct. If the
student guesses the answer to the questions, then what is the

A quiz consists of 20 multiple-choice questions, each with 6
possible answers. For someone who makes random guesses for all of
the answers, find the probability of passing if the minimum passing
grade is 60 %.

For each question on a multiple-choice test, there are five
possible answers, of which exactly one is correct. If a student
selects answers at random, give the probability that the first
question answered correctly is question 4.

An unprepared student must take a 10-question multiple-choice
test that has 5 possible answers per question. If the student
guesses on all the questions what is the probability that they will
pass the exam. (70% required to pass)

A multiple choice exam consists of 25 questions, each with 4
possible answers. Suppose that a student doesn't know the material
and simply guesses on each question.
Using the CDF command in MINITAB, answer the following
questions.

A multiple-choice test consists of 25 questions, each with four
possible answers. If our desperate business statistics student
answers the test by guessing the answers before reading the
questions (that is, by selecting an answer at random for each
question), use the normal curve approximation to find the
probabilities that he will get:
exactly six correct answers (b) at least seven correct
answers
fewer than four correct answers (d) more than two, but fewer
than nine correct answers

A multiple-choice test consists of 10 questions. Each question
has answer choices of a, b, c,
d, and e, and only one of the choices is correct.
If a student randomly guesses on each question, what is the
probability that he gets at most 1 of them correct?
