Question

*1. USA Today* reported that approximately 25% of all
state prison inmates released on parole become repeat offenders
while on parole. Suppose the parole board is examining five
prisoners up for parole. Let *x* = number of prisoners out
of five on parole who become repeat offenders.

x |
0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |

P(x) |
0.223 | 0.375 | 0.217 | 0.153 | 0.031 | 0.001 |

(a) Find the probability that one or more of the five parolees will be repeat offenders. (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

(b) Find the probability that two or more of the five parolees will
be repeat offenders. (Round your answer to three decimal
places.)

(c) Find the probability that four or more of the five parolees
will be repeat offenders. (Round your answer to three decimal
places.)

Ans= 0.032

(d) Compute *μ*, the expected number of repeat offenders
out of five. (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

*μ* = prisoners

(e) Compute *σ*, the standard deviation of the number of
repeat offenders out of five. (Round your answer to two decimal
places.)

*σ* = prisoners

2. The college student senate is sponsoring a spring break Caribbean cruise raffle. The proceeds are to be donated to the Samaritan Center for the Homeless. A local travel agency donated the cruise, valued at $2000. The students sold 2663 raffle tickets at $5 per ticket.

(a) Kevin bought twenty-seven tickets. What is the probability
that Kevin will win the spring break cruise to the Caribbean?
(Round your answer to five decimal places.)

What is the probability that Kevin will not win the cruise? (Round
your answer to five decimal places.)

(b) Expected earnings can be found by multiplying the value of the
cruise by the probability that Kevin will win. What are Kevin's
expected earnings? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

$

Is this more or less than the amount Kevin paid for the
twenty-seven tickets?

How much did Kevin effectively contriute to the Samaritan Center
for the Homeless? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

3. Are your finances, buying habits, medical records, and phone
calls really private? A real concern for many adults is that
computers and the Internet are reducing privacy. A survey conducted
by Peter D. Hart Research Associates for the Shell Poll was
reported in *USA Today*. According to the survey, 49% of
adults are concerned that employers are monitoring phone calls. Use
the binomial distribution formula to calculate the probability of
the following.

(a) Out of five adults, none is concerned that employers are
monitoring phone calls. (Round your answer to three decimal
places.)

(b) Out of five adults, all are concerned that employers are
monitoring phone calls. (Round your answer to three decimal
places.)

(c) Out of five adults, exactly three are concerned that employers
are monitoring phone calls. (Round your answer to three decimal
places.)

Thank you for your time and patience! Please help. I am very confused.
