Question

**15. (9 pts) A particular basketball player has a season
long free throw percentage of 55%. The player takes 7 free
throws.**

**a) Explain why this is a binomial
probability.**

**b) Create a table with the probability
distribution.**

**c) Create the histogram for the probability
distribution.**

Answer #1

Total number of free throw is 7 given

Percentage of season long throw =prob of success =0.55

Hense this follow binomial distribution in case

Solution file is attached go through it

Thanks

In a national basketball association, the top free-throw
shooters usually have probability of about 0.85 of making any given
free throw. Complete parts a through c.
a. During a game, one such player shot 9 free throws. Let X
equals=number of free throws made. What must you assume in order
for X to have a binomial distribution?
b. specify the values of n and p for the binomial distribution
of X in part a.
c. find the probability that the...

In a national basketball association, the top free-throw
shooters usually have probability of about 0.80 of making any given
free throw.
a. a. During a game, one such player shot 10 free throws. Let
X=number of free throws made. What must you assume in order for X
to have a binomial distribution?
b. What is the value of n and p
c. Find the probability that the player made all 10 free
throws, 9 free throws, and more than 7...

a. A certain basketball player has a 75% free throw percentage.
What is the probability that this player will make exactly two of
their next three attempts from the free throw line? Show
all steps to solve.
b. What is the probability that the player will make at least
two of their next three attempts? Show all steps to
solve.

In basketball, the top free throw shooters usually have a
probability of about
0.850
of making any given free throw. Over the course of a season,
one such player shoots
300
free throws.
a. Find the mean and standard deviation of the
probability distribution of the number of free throws he makes.
b. By the normal distribution approximation,
within what range would the number of free throws made almost
certainly fall? Why?
c. Within what range would the proportion made...

A basketball player make 75% of her free throws. He takes 9 free
throws in a game. Find the probability that he makes 8 of the 9
free throws.

Use the appropriate normal distribution to approximate the
resulting binomial distribution.
A basketball player has a 75% chance of making a free throw.
(Assume that the throws are independent of each other.) What is the
probability of her making 100 or more free throws in 112 trials?
(Round your answer to four decimal places.)
You may need to use the appropriate table in the Appendix of Tables
to answer this question.

A basketball player has a 60% accuracy rate for making free
throws. During practice, this player fails to make a free throw
three times in a row, but is finally successful on the fourth
attempt.
Using the geometric distribution formula, what is the probability
of this player successfully making a free throw on the fourth
attempt? Each attempt is independent of each other and answer
choices are rounded to the hundredths place.
a.) 0.04
b.) 0.60
c.) 0.40
d.) 0.10

Assume a college basketball player makes 75% of his free throws
and that the outcome of free throw attempts are independent.
a) The basketball player is fouled and is awarded two free
throws. Develop a probability distribution for number of points
(free throws made) for the two attempts.
b) The basketball player is fouled and is awarded two free
throws. What is the expected number of points for the two
attempts?
c) The basketball player is fouled and is awarded...

5) A basketball player can score on average of 60% of his free
throws. He shoots 100 shots for one season.
Find the probability of obtaining 70 or more numbers using the
normal approach to binomial distribution.

A basketball player makes 9 out 0f 10 free throws on average.
Out of 10 free throws, what is the probability that:
a)the player misses none
b)the player misses 1
c)the player misses 2
d) the player misses at least 3
