Question

In a particular bag of skittles, there are 12 red, 8 orange, 10
green, 15 yellow, and 12 purple skittles. Give the indicated
probability:

1.Selecting a yellow skittle

2.Selecting a red or a purple skittle

3. Not selecting a green skittle

4. Selecting two consecutive orange skittles

Answer #1

A coworker claims that Skittles candy contains equal quantities
of each color (purple, green, orange, yellow, and red). In other
words, 1/5 of all Skittles are purple, 1/5 of all Skittles are
green, etc. You, an avid consumer of Skittles, disagree with her
claim. Test your coworker's claim at the α=0.10 level of
significance, using the data shown below from a random sample of
200 Skittles.
Which would be correct hypotheses for this test?
H0:p1=p2
; H1:p1≠p2

Suppose you have a bag of Skittles with 27 blue Skittles, 18
green
Skittles, 32 red Skittles, and 10 yellow Skittles. You are very
hungry and eat all Skittles
in this bag, but just one at a time.
a) How many possible orders are there to eat all Skittles in the
bag?
b) If you pick Skittles from the bag in a random order to eat them,
what is
the probability that you first eat all the red Skittles?

Skittles Original Fruit bite-size candies are multicolored
candies in a bag, and you can "Taste the Rainbow" with their five
colors and flavors: green, lime; purple, grape; yellow, lemon;
orange, orange; and red, strawberry. Unlike some of the other
multicolored candies available, Skittles claims that their five
colors are equally likely. In an attempt to reject this claim, a
4-oz bag of Skittles was purchased and the colors counted. Does
this sample contradict Skittle's claim at the .05 level?

1. Joanna bought a pack of Skittles in a movie theater. The pack
contains a total of 24 Skittles including 7 green, 4 yellow, 3
orange, 8 purple, and 2 red. Please leave answers to five (5)
decimal places! Calculate the following:
a. What is the probability of picking a green followed by a red,
without replacement?
b. What is the probability of picking three consecutive greens,
with replacement?
c. What is the probability of picking either an orange or...

A bag contains 10 white, 12 blue, 13 red, 7 yellow, and 8 green
wooded balls. A ball is selected from the bag, its color noted,
then replaced. You then draw a second ball, note its color and then
replace the ball. What is the probability of selecting 2 white
balls? Round to the nearest ten-thousandth.

Favorite Skittles Flavor?
A poll sampled 93 people, asking them their favorite skittle flavor
by color (green, orange, purple, red, or yellow). A separate poll
sampled 113 people, again asking them their favorite skittle
flavor, but rather than by color they asked by the actual flavor
(lime, orange, grape, strawberry, and lemon, respectively). The
table below shows the results from both polls. Does the way people
choose their favorite Skittles type, by color or flavor, appear to
be related to...

A fun size bag of M&Ms has 4 blue, 3 orange, 3 red, 2
green, 2 yellow, and 1 brown M&Ms. What is the probability of
randomly selecting 5 M&Ms where 3 are blue and 2 are red?

Are candy color pieces uniformly distributed?
In a 2 ounce bag of Skittles, there are green, red, yellow,
orange and purple pieces. Ideally, each bag should have the same
amount of pieces for each color (so colors/categories are equally
likely.)
PROJECT: Pick (or Google a picture of) a bag of candy
(Skittles, M&Ms or Mike & Ikes, etc) that fulfills the
requirements listed below and perform a goodness of fit test for
uniform distribution (use a 0.05 significance level.)
Requirements...

Recall the pre-lab candy situation consider: two unopened bags
of candy (one Skittles the other M&M's). The manufacturers
state the distribution of coloured candies is:
M&M'S MILK CHOCOLATE: 24% blue, 19% orange, 16% green, 13%
yellow, 13% red, 15% brown.
SKITTLES: colours are reportedly distributed evenly, meaning each
colour (red, orange, green, blue, yellow, and purple) has a
probability of 1616.
Assume that both of these unopened bags have the same number of
candies. If they are opened and mixed,...
