Question

A student is taking a multiple-choice quiz in which each question has five possible answers, exactly one of which is correct. He knows 85% of the material being tested. Assume the teacher has chosen the questions independently and at random from among all the questions she could have chosen.

When the student knows the correct answer to a given question, he has a 98% chance of marking it correctly. When he does not know the answer, he answers by marking at random one of the five possible answers. (Recall that “at random” means that each of the five possible answers is equally likely.)

For any question selected at random from the quiz, let K be the event that the student knows the correct answer and let M be the event that he marks the correct answer.

1) Which number is P(K)

2) Suppose a question is selected at random from the quiz.

(a) Calculate P(K ∩ M), the probability that the student knows the correct answer and marks it correctly.

(b) Calculate P(M), the probability of marking the correct answer.

(c) Calculate P(K I M), the probability that the student knows the answer to the question, given that he marked it correctly.

(d) Calculate P (K ∪ M )

3) Now suppose 3 questions are selected at random from the quiz. Calculate the probability that the student marks all three correctly. Assume that the student’s responses to different questions are independent of each other.

Answer #1

A Student takes a multiple choice Quiz where there are "n"
possible answers in each question.
1- The Student answers the question correctly if the Student knows
the answer.
2- The Student answers the question randomly if the Student doesn't
know the answer.
3- Suppose that the Quiz has 20 questions, and that the Student
knows "80%" of the questions correctly.
what is the expected number of questions that the Student will get
correctly?

In a statistics class, Maya takes a multiple-choice quiz. There
are 10 questions. Each question has five possible answers. Maya
will pass the test if she studies so that she has a 75% chance of
answering each question correctly. Let x be the number of of
correct answers. (Round probabilities to 4 decimal places)
a. Define the Random Variable, x ~
b. What is the PDF formula?
c. Find the probability that Maya answers exactly 4 of the
questions correctly?...

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
probability earn a grade of 70% or higher? Show how to on Ti-84

a) A student has just been given a 7-question multiple-choice
quiz in their anatomy class. Each question has five answers, of
which only one is correct. Since this student has not attended any
classes recently, they do not know any of the answers and must
guess on all 7 questions. What is the probability they will get at
least one question correct?
a. 0.7903
b. 0.8154
c. 0.3670
d. 0.1429
b) A student has just been given a 7-question multiple-choice...

A problem on a multiple-choice quiz is answered correctly with
probability 0.95 if a student is prepared. An unprepared student
guesses between 5 possible answers, so the probability of choosing
the right answer is 1/5. Seventy-five percent of students prepare
for the quiz. If Mr. X gives a correct answer to this problem, what
is the chance that he did not prepare for the quiz?

Larry takes a multiple-choice test where for each question there
are five possible answers to choose from. If he guesses, he gets
the answer correct with probability 1/5. For any given question, he
knows the correct answer with probability 1/2. Given the
information that Larry got question one correct, what is the
probability he knew the correct answer to question one?

A
quiz consists of 12 multiple-choice questions. Each question has 5
possible answers, only one of which is correct. Klein plans to
guess the answer to each question. Find the probability that Klein
gets exactly 7 correct answers. *

A short statistics quiz consists of two multiple choice
questions. Each question had four possible answer choices (A, B, C,
and D).
a. Make a list of the possible answer keys for the quiz or make
a tree diagram for them.
b. How many possible answer keys are there?
c. If a student guesses at random for both questions, what is
the probability they get both questions right?
d. What is the probability that C was not the correct answer...

A student takes a 19 question multiple choice quiz with 4
choices for each question. If the student guesses at random on each
question, what is the probability that the student gets more than 2
questions correct?
