The Internal Revenue Service is studying the category of charitable contributions. A sample of 22 returns is selected from young couples between the ages of 20 and 35 who had an adjusted gross income of more than $100,000. Of these 22 returns, 7 had charitable contributions of more than $1,000. Suppose 6 of these returns are selected for a comprehensive audit.
Explain why the hypergeometric distribution is appropriate. Because:
you are sampling a small population without replacement.
you are sampling a small population with replacement.
you are sampling a large population without replacement.
B. What is the probability exactly one of the six audited had a charitable deduction of more than $1,000? (Round your answer to 4 decimal places.)
C. What is the probability at least one of the audited returns had a charitable contribution of more than $1,000? (Round your answer to 4 decimal places.)
If you are satisfied with my answer then please give me a thumbs-up.
Thank you.
