Question

In a class with 20 students, 8 males and 12 females, 5 students are selected. Use hypergeometric distribution to find that 2 are males and 3 are females.

Answer #1

N = 20

n = 5

k = 8

P(2 males and 3 females) = 8C2 * 12C3 / 20C5

= 28 * 220 / 15504

= 0.3973

Question 1. (Multinomial and multivariate hypergeometric
distribution. See Lecture 26.) In a mixed MathStats class of 30
students, 20 are enrolled only in statistics and 5 are enrolled
only in mathematics: there are 5 students that are enrolled in both
statistics and mathematics.
(a) For each Monday of the 12 weeks of semester, a student from
the class is selected at random to give a class presentation. This
is sampling with replacement: use the multinomial distribution to

A recent study of high school students shows the percentage of
females and males who have at LEAST one notation in their school
record for inappropriate behavior. A simple random sample of high
school students was interviewed. The students were asked whether
they had a notation for inappropriate behavior in their school
record. Of the 100 females, 21 answered yes, as did 145 of the 400
males.
