Question

A basketball player has a 60% accuracy rate for making free
throws. During practice, this player fails to make a free throw
three times in a row, but is finally successful on the fourth
attempt.

Using the geometric distribution formula, what is the probability
of this player successfully making a free throw on the fourth
attempt? Each attempt is independent of each other and answer
choices are rounded to the hundredths place.

a.) 0.04

b.) 0.60

c.) 0.40

d.) 0.10

Answer #1

**Answer---->>**

**Option a). 0.04 is correct**

Assume a college basketball player makes 75% of his free throws
and that the outcome of free throw attempts are independent.
a) The basketball player is fouled and is awarded two free
throws. Develop a probability distribution for number of points
(free throws made) for the two attempts.
b) The basketball player is fouled and is awarded two free
throws. What is the expected number of points for the two
attempts?
c) The basketball player is fouled and is awarded...

Attempt 2 Stephen is a basketball player who makes 82 % of his
free throws over the course of a season. Each day, Stephen shoots
70 free throws during practice. Assume that each day constitutes a
simple random sample, SRS, of all free throws shot by Stephen, and
that each free throw is independent of the rest. Let the random
variable X equal the count of free throws that Stephen makes.
Compute the probability that Stephen makes at least 56...

A basketball player steps to the line to shoot three
free-throws. If her free-throw completion average is .95 and we
assume her probability of completion is constant and each shot is
independent, what is the probability that she completes at least
two free-throws? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
The answer is supposed to be .993 how do you get this
answer?

Sue, a starting player for a major college basketball team,
made only 38% of her free throws last year. During the summer she
worked on developing a softer shot in the hope of improving her
free-throw accuracy. In the first eight games of this season Sue
made 22 free throws in 40 attempts. Assume that these 40 attempts
represent a random sample of free throws. Let p be the
probability of making each free throw she shoots this season. Does...

Use the appropriate normal distribution to approximate the
resulting binomial distribution.
A basketball player has a 75% chance of making a free throw.
(Assume that the throws are independent of each other.) What is the
probability of her making 100 or more free throws in 112 trials?
(Round your answer to four decimal places.)
You may need to use the appropriate table in the Appendix of Tables
to answer this question.
