Question

- The probability of a man hitting the target at a shooting range is 1/4. If he shoots 30 times, what is the probability that he hits the target at least 10 times? (Copy your R code and the result).

- Suppose X follows a Chi-square distribution with degree of freedom 12. Find the cutoff point a, such that, P(X<a) = 0.85.

- Entry to a certain University is determined by a national test. The scores on this test are normally distributed with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 100. Tom wants to be admitted to this university and he knows that he must score better than at least 70% of the students who took the test. Tom takes the test and scores 585. Will he be admitted to this university? (Copy your R code and the result).

Suppose you play this game 100 times. Find the probability that you will win at least

$10.

Answer #1

Solution:

The probability of man hitting the target at a shooting range is 1/4.

if the shoots 30 times.

we are calucating the probabality that he hits at least 10 times?
