Question

At Litchfield College of Nursing, 89% of incoming freshmen nursing students are female and 11% are male. Recent records indicate that 70% of the entering female students will graduate with a BSN degree, while 90% of the male students will obtain a BSN degree. If an incoming freshman nursing student is selected at random, find the following probabilities. (Enter your answers to three decimal places.)

(a) *P*(student will graduate | student is female)

(b) *P*(student will graduate *and* student is
female)

(c) *P*(student will graduate | student is male)

(d) *P*(student will graduate *and* student is
male)

(e) *P*(student will graduate). Note that those who will
graduate are either males who will graduate or females who will
graduate.

(f) The events described the phrases "will graduate *and* is
female" and "will graduate, *given* female" seem to be
describing the same students. Why are the probabilities
*P*(will graduate *and* is female) and
*P*(will graduate | female) different?

These probabilities are the same.

The term *and* refers to the sample space of all
students, while the term *given* refers to restricting the
sample space to females only.

The term *given* refers to the sample space of all
students, while the term *and* refers to restricting the
sample space to females only.

This is by chance. These probabilities are typically the same.
