Question

A
certain baseball player hits a home run in 7% of his at-bats.
Consider his at-bats as independent events. Find the probability
that this baseball player hits more than 42 home runs in 800
at-bats?

a) 0.93

b) 0.9693

c) 0.07

d) 0.0307

Answer #1

**Answer:**

here for binomial distribution parameter n=800 and p=0.07 |

here mean of distribution=μ=np= | 56.00 |

and standard deviation σ=sqrt(np(1-p))= | 7.22 |

for normal distribution z score =(X-μ)/σx | |

since np and n(1-p) both are greater than 5, we can use normal approximation of binomial distribution |

probability that this baseball player hits at most 42 home runs in 800 at-bats :

probability
=P(X<42.5)=(Z<(42.5-56)/7.217)=P(Z<-1.87)=0.0307 |

**Option D is
Correct**

Mark noticed that the probability that a certain player hits a
home run in a single game is 0.175. Mark is interested in the
variability of the number of home runs if this player plays 200
games. If Mark uses the normal approximation of the binomial
distribution to model the number of home runs, what is the standard
deviation for a total of 200 games? Answer choices are rounded to
the hundredths place.

A baseball player, Mickey, who bats 310 (or .310) gets an
average of 3.1 hits in ten at bats. We will assume that each time
Mickey bats he has a 0.31 probability of getting a hit. This means
Mickeys at bats are independent from one another. If we also assume
Mickey bats 5 times during a game and that x= the number of hits
that Mickey gets then the following probability mass function,
p(x), and cumulative distribution function F(x) are...

The probability that Babe Ruth hits a home run on any given
at-bat is 0.12, and each at-bat is independent.
Part A: What is the probability that the next
home run will be on his fifth at-bat?
Part B: What is the expected number of at-bats
until the next home run?

In a recent baseball season, Bob hit a home run approximately
once every 18.38 plate appearances. Assume that this probability
did not change going into the next season. What is the probability
that Bob hits his first home run before his 25th plate appearance
of the season? Use Excel to find the probability.

In the city of Akronage a traditional baseball season has “T”
number of games. Steven Akronage the town owner and star baseball
player hits a lot of home runs. The number of home runs Steven hits
in a game is a poisson random variable with parameters μ and is
independent of the number of home runs scored during any other
game
What is the expected number games where no home runs are hit
by Steven?
