Question

Suppose that 4% of all books in a library have red covers. In a group of n books selected from the shelves, consider the probability that at most two red books are selected. How large must n be before this probability is less than 0.02?

Answer #1

p = 0.04

The probability that at most two red books are selected. =

critical z value corresponding to probability 0.02 is -2.0537

let

solving for x we get two roots

and

sample size should be positive so we will consider x = 13.71

n shall be 188

A library patron is trying to find books for her family to
enjoy. Suppose that when the patron looks
at a book, there is a 75% chance that she will check the book out.
The patron has decided to check
out 8 books. Assume that whether she decides to check out a book is
independent of the other
books she looks at. Let X be the number of books that she decides
not to check out (and has to
reshelve)...

Suppose that the amount of time that students spend studying in
the library in one sitting is normally distributed with mean 49
minutes and standard deviation 19 minutes. A researcher observed 14
students who entered the library to study. Round all answers to 4
decimal places where possible. What is the distribution of X X ? X

Suppose you have a box with 10 red balls, 4 green balls, and 6
blue balls. Answer the following questions. Think about the
questions below. They look similar, but how are they different?
a) You randomly select two balls from the box. What is the
probability of selecting two red balls?
b) Suppose you are asked to draw a ball, return whatever you
picked, and draw another ball. This is called sampling with
replacement. What is the probability of selecting...

Suppose that the amount of time that students spend studying in
the library in one sitting is normally distributed with mean 49
minutes and standard deviation 23 minutes. A researcher observed 46
students who entered the library to study. Round all answers to 4
decimal places where possible.
Find the probability that the randomly selected 46 students
will have a total study time less than 2070 minutes.
For part e) and f), is the assumption of normal necessary?
YesNo

You have to create a Library Borrowing System based on the
following requirements:
When new books arrive, these books must be cataloged into the
system by a librarian (i.e., entered in the system). Information on
a book should include book ID, title, author ID,
ISBN, and edition. The system should
capture author names so that users can search for an author. The
library may carry multiple books by the same author, and an author
can have multiple books in the...

The following data represents the numbers of books checked out
from the college library during one semester by a random sample of
students. 2 7 5 13 4 0 10 5 6 8
a. How large is the sample? b. What is the total number of books
checked out by all the students in the sample? c. Find the sample
mean. d. Find the sample variance. e. Find the sample standard
deviation.

A species of scarab beetles have red, orange or golden wing
covers. A cross between a pair of orange beetles gave 3/4 orange
and 1/4 golden offspring. A cross between a red and an orange pair
have 1/2 red and 1/2 orange offspring. How do you explain these
results? Choose the best answer. The trait is controlled ….
1) by 3 alleles and recessive relations
2) 3 alleles and incomplete dominance
3)3 alleles and both incomplete dominance and recessive
alleles...

Suppose that an urn contains 8 red balls and 4
white balls. We draw 2 balls
from the urn without replacement.
Now suppose that the balls have
different weights, with each red ball having weight
r and each white ball having weight w. Suppose that the
probability that a given ball in
the urn is the next one selected is its weight divided by the
sum of the weights of all
balls currently in the urn.
Now what is the...
