**a.**
What is the probability that in the next six? 18- to? 29-year-olds
surveyed, four will own a? tablet?

**b.**
What is the probability that in the next six? 18- to? 29-year-olds
surveyed, all six will own a? tablet?

**c.**
What is the probability that in the next six? 18- to? 29-year-olds
surveyed, at least four will own a? tablet?

**d.**
What are the mean and standard deviation of the number of? 18- to?
29-year-olds who will own a tablet in a survey of? six?

**e.**
What assumptions do you need to make in? (a) through? (c)? Select
all that apply.

-The outcome of any observation is independent of the outcome of any other observation.

-The probability of an observation being classified as the event of? interest, pi??, is constant from observation to observation.

Answer #1

here this is binomial with parameter n=6 and
p=0.41 |

a)

P(X=4)= |
(_{n}C_{x})p^{x}(1−p)^{(n-x) }
= |
0.1475 |

b)

P(X=6)= |
(_{n}C_{x})p^{x}(1−p)^{(n-x) }
= |
0.0048 |

c)

P(X>=4)=1-P(X<=3)= |
1-∑_{x=0}^{x-1 }
(_{n}C_{x})p^{x}(q)^{(n-x)} = |
0.1933 |

d)

mean E(x)=μ=np=2.46 |

standard deviation σ=√(np(1-p))=1.2047 |

e)

Correct options are:

The outcome of any observation is independent of the outcome of any other observation.

The probability of an observation being classified as the event of? interest, pi??, is constant from observation to observation.

outcomes are mutually exclusive and completely exhaustive

A national survey indicated that 70% of 18- to 29-year-olds
would prefer to start their own business rather than work for
someone else. A random sample of 600 18- to 29years-olds is
obtained today.
a) (2 points) Find the mean of this sampling distribution of
proportion.
b) (2 points) Find the standard deviation of this sampling
distribution of proportion.
c) (4 points) In a random sample of 600 18- to 29-year-olds, what
is the probability that more than 75% would...

In January, 2014, a research center found that 89% of 18-29 year
olds in the U.S. used social media sites. That year I surveyed 500
Portlanders between the ages of 18-29, and found that 95% of them
used social media sites. If Portland mirrors the US percentage,
what is the probability that my sample of 500 would contain 95%
successes?

A study indicates that 18- to 24- year olds spend a mean of
145 minutes watching video on their smartphones per month. Assume
that the amount of time watching video on a smartphone per month is
normally distributed and that the standard deviation is 10 minutes.
Complete parts (a) through (d) below.
a.What is the probability that an 18- to 24-year-old spends
less than 140 minutes watching video on his or her smartphone per
month?The probability that an 18- to...

A national survey found that 56% of adults ages 25-29 had only
a cell phone and no landline. Suppose that three 25-29-year-olds
are randomly selected. Complete parts a through c below.
a) What is the probability that all of these adults have only a
cell phone and no landline? (Round to four decimal places as
needed.)
b) What is the probability that none of these adults have only a
cell phone and no landline? (Round to four decimal places as...

In a recent household telephone survey of 2,870 adults in a
certain? country, 28?% reported that they own at least one gun. The
researchers want to estimate the true percentage of adults in that
country that own at least one gun. Complete parts
a through f below.
a. Identify the population of interest to the
researchers. Choose the correct answer below.
A.The set of adults that responded to the survey
B.The set of guns in the country
C.The set of...

According to a consumer survey of young adults (18-24 years of
age) who shop online, 23% own a mobile phone with internet
access. In a random sample of 300 young adults who shop online,
let x be the number who own a mobile phone with internet
access.
a. Explain why x is a binomial random variable
(to a reasonable degree of approximation). Choose the correct
explanation below.
A. The experiment consists of n identical, dependent trials,
with more than two...

According to a recent study, only 41% of auto mechanics
correctly diagnose a common vehicle problem. 9 auto mechanics are
randomly selected and then each is tested to see if she/he
correctly diagnoses the vehicle problem. Use this situation to
answer the parts below.
(a) Recognizing that this is a binomial situation, give the
meaning of S & F in this context. Define what you will classify
as success and failures.
(b) Next, give the values of n, p, and...

#46 In a survey of 2000 adults 50 years and older of whom 20%
were retired and 80% were pre-retired, the following question was
asked: Do you expect your income needs to vary from year to year in
retirement? Of those who were retired, 23% answered no, and 77%
answered yes. Of those who were pre-retired, 28% answered no, and
72% answered yes. If a respondent in the survey was selected at
random and had answered yes to the question,...
