Question

An engineering student has determined that her probability of passing the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is 0.35. Assuming that this probability remains constant each time she takes the exam, what is the probability she will pass the exam within two years? There is a limit of three attempts in a 12 month period.

Answer #1

**Solution:**

We are given that the probability that an engineering student passes the fundamentals of engineering exam is 0.35.

Let x be the number of attempts student takes to pass the exam.

In two years, there will be 6 attempts. Therefore, the probability that she will pass the exam within two years is:

**Therefore, the probability she will pass the exam within
two years is 0.9246**

To obtain a certain job, a student must pass a certain exam. The
exam may be taken many times. If the student passes on the first
try, she gets the job. If not, she still gets the job if at some
times the number of passing attempts exceeds the number of failures
by two. If at any time the number of failures exceeded the number
of passes by two, she is not allowed to ever take the exam again.
The...

On the first try she has probability 0.2 of passing. If she
fails on the first try, her probability on the second try increases
to 0.3 because she learned something from her first attempt. If she
fails on two attempts, the probability of passing on a third
attempt is 0.4. She will stop as soon as she passes. The course
rules force her to stop after three attempts in any case.
