Question

For married couples living in a certain suburb, the probability
that the husband will vote on a bond

referendum is 0.25, the probability that the wife will vote on the
referendum is 0.20. The probability

that a husband will vote on the bond referendum, given that his
wife will vote, is 0.75. What is the

probability that

a. both husband and wife will vote?

b. a wife will vote, given that her husband will vote?

c. at least one member of a married couple will vote?

Answer #1

P(husband will vote) = 0.25

P(wife will vote) = 0.2

P(husband will vote | wife will vote) = 0.75

a) P(both husband and wife will vote) = P(husband will vote | wife will vote) * P(wife will vote) = 0.75 * 0.2 = 0.15

b) P(wife will vote | husband will vote) = P(both husband and wife will vote) / P(husband will vote) = 0.15 / 0.25 = 0.6

c) P(at least one member will vote) = P(husband will vote) + P(wife will vote) - P(both husband and wife will vote) = 0.25 + 0.2 - 0.15 = 0.3

Problem 5 Among married couples, 20% of the husbands (H) and 8%
of the wives (W) watch Super Bowl. It is also known that the
probability that at least one spouse of a married couple will be
watching a Super Bowl is 0.23. A married couple is selected at
random during a Super Bowl.
(b) What is the probability that both husband and wife are
watching the Super Bowl?

An investigator is interested in the wages of married couples
living in Scotland.She knows that the hourly wages of wives are
normally distributed with a mean of £15 and a standard deviation of
£2. The hourly wages of husbands are normally distributed with a
mean of £20 and a standard deviation of £3. If there is a positive
covariance of 2.0 between the wages of husbands and wives, for what
proportion of married couples will the husband earn at least...

the ages of husbands and their wives?

wives is equal to 0.
B) No conclusions can be drawn without seeing a scatterplot of the...

Six
married couples (twelve people in total) are to be seated around a
circular table. Since the table is circular, two seating
arrangements are considered the same if one is a rotation of the
other. If each of the twelve people randomly chooses a seat, what
is the probability that each member of a married couple sits next
to the other member?

In preparation for Halloween, three married couples, the Browns,

less present than Joe Jones. What is Mary’s last name?
Hint: (x + y)(x – y) = 75
