Question

A man claims to have extrasensory perception (ESP). As a test, a fair coin is flipped 2323 times, and the man is asked to predict the outcome in advance. He gets 1919 out of 2323 correct. What is the probability that he would have done at least this well if he had no ESP?

A man claims to have extrasensory perception (ESP). As a test, a
fair coin is flipped 29 times, and the man is asked to predict the
outcome in advance. He gets 25 out of 29 correct. What is the
probability that he would have done at least this well if he had no
ESP? Hint: If he has no ESP, then he's just randomly guessing,
right- If he is randomly guessing, what should you use as p, the

is the probability that he would have done at least this well if he
had no ESP? Hint: If he has no ESP, then he's just randomly

In a test for ESP (extrasensory perception) the experimenter
looks at cards that are hidden from the subject. The experimenter
looks at many cards bearing one of five shapes (star, square,
circle, wave and cross) in an order determined by random numbers.
The subject cannot see the experimenter as he looks at each card in
turn, in order to avoid any possible non verbal clues. We can
consider the population to be an infinite number of guesses where
the trait...

A subject claims to have ESP (Extra Sensory Perception). One
experiment to detect ESP uses a shuffled deck of five cards in
which each card has one of five different pictures on it (circle,
cross, square, star, and wave). A card is selected from the deck.
The subject is asked to guess the picture on the selected card.
After the response is recorded the card is returned to the deck and
the deck is shuffled. If a subject does not...

Suppose that you are asked to evaluate the abilities of an
individual who claims to have perfect ESP (extrasensory
perception). You decide to conduct an experiment to test this
ability. You deal one card face down from a regular deck of 52
cards. The subject is then asked to say what the card is. Consider
the following hypotheses: The subject does not have ESP. The
subject does have ESP.
(a) What would a Type I error be in this context?...

Assignment 2
1. Assume that you have two biased coins and one fair coin. One
of the biased coins are two tailed and the second biased one comes
tails 25 percent of the time. A coin is selected randomly and
flipped. What is the probability that the flipped coin will come up
tail?
