Question

**I**n this game, there is only one deck of cards.
You play with a friend and the deck of cards belongs to him/her.
Numbered cards are worth their face value, jacks are worth 11,
queen 12, kings 13 and aces 14. You have a suspicion that in this
deck of cards, your friend has replaced some high cards in the deck
with low cards.

You take 10 cards and quickly calculate the average value: 4.5. You do the math: In a regular deck of cards the average should be mean =7.5 and standard deviation = 4.18

Now assume that you do not know the standard deviation of the “population of cards” and that you use the standard deviation in your sample and that this is equal to s = 2.4

- Calculate a test statistic to test whether you can reject your null hypothesis based on your estimated standard deviation. What are the degrees of freedom for your test?
- Calculate the p-value.
- Do you reject the null hypothesis at the 1% significance level?

Answer #1

(a)

(1) *Null and Alternative Hypotheses*

The following null and alternative hypotheses need to be tested:

Ho:μ = 7.5

Ha: μ ≠ 7.5

(b)test statistic:

t=~t_{n-1}

t=
=**−2.27** ~t_{9}_{,0.1
}(calculated)

t_{9,0.1=}1.833 (tabulated)

since, t_{cal} > t_{tab} we
reject null hypothesis or **
7.5 is accepted.**

(c) p-value is p=0.0494, and since
**p=0.0494<0.1**, it is concluded that the null
hypothesis is rejected or **
7.5 is accepted.**

(d) Since, we know that the average value in a regular cards of deck =7.5

**but since, in this case we rejected our null hypothesis
or
7.5 is accepted.**

**hence, yes we can blame our friend for
cheating.**

A standard deck consists of 52 cards of which 4 are aces, 4 are
kings, and 12 (including the four kings) are "face cards" (Jacks,
Queens, and Kings). Cards are dealt at random without replacement
from a standard deck till all the cards have been dealt. Find the
expectation of the following. Each can be done with almost no
calculation if you use symmetry.
a) The number of aces among the first 5 cards
b) The number of face cards...

Suppose you choose 5 cards from a standard 52-card deck (with 13
hearts, 13 spades, 13 clubs and 13 diamonds). How many different
choices of cards are possible if a. you can choose any 5 cards from
the deck? b. all 5 cards must be hearts? c. you must choose four
kings and one queen? d. you must choose 3 kings and no queens? e.
you must choose at least 1 king and at least 2 aces?

A deck of playing cards has 52 cards. There are four suits
(clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds). Each suit has 13 cards.
Jacks, Queens, and Kings are called picture cards. Suppose you
select three cards from the deck without replacement.
a. Find the probability of getting a heart only on your second
card. Round answer to three decimal places
b Find the probability of selecting a Jack and a heart . Round
answer to three decimal places.
c. Find the...

Suppose that we draw two cards from a standard deck of 52
playing cards, where ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, jack, queen
and king each appear four times (once in each suit). Suppose that
it is equally likely that we draw any card remaining in the
deck.
Let X be the value of the first card, where we count aces as 1,
jacks as 11, queens as 12, and kings as 13. Let Y be...

You deal 5 cards from a well-shuffled full deck. (note that
there are 52 cards in a full deck and among these, there are
exactly 4 aces and 4 kings (likewise 4 of each of the 13 ranks) in
the full deck) a) What is the probability that you get exactly 3
aces among the 5 cards? b) What is the probability that you get
exactly 2 kings among the 5 cards? c) What is the probability that
you get...

Consider a game that consists of dealing out two cards from a
deck of four cards.
The deck contains the Ace of Spades (AS), the Ace of Hearts
(AH), the King of Spades (KS) and the 9 of Hearts (9H).
Let X be your total where; aces count as 1 or 11, kings count as
10 and your maximum count is 21 (that is, AA = 12). Also, let A be
the number of aces in your hand. Suppose your...

The following question involves a standard deck of 52 playing
cards. In such a deck of cards there are four suits of 13 cards
each. The four suits are: hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades. The
26 cards included in hearts and diamonds are red. The 26 cards
included in clubs and spades are black. The 13 cards in each suit
are: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. This
means there are four...

12. Cards: Suppose you and a friend are playing cards and you
are each dealt 4 cards. You have a 10, Jack, Queen, and King in
your hand. You are about to dealt one more card. What is the
probability that you are dealt an Ace given that
a. Your friend has no Aces in his hand.
b. Your friend has exactly one ace in his hand.

. Consider 5-card hands from a standard 52-card deck of cards
(and consider hands as sets, so that the same cards in different
orders are the same hand). In your answers to following questions
you may use binomial coefficients and/or factorials. (Recall that
there are 4 Aces, 4 Kings, and 4 Queens in the deck of cards)
a) How many different 5-card hands are there?
b) How many hands are there with no Aces?
c) How many hands are there...
