Question

- A math class consists of 25 students, 14 female and 11 males.
Three students are selected at random to participate in a
probability experiment. Compute the probability that
- a male is selected, then two females.
- a female is selected, then two males.
- two females are selected, then one male.
- three males are selected.
- three females are selected.

Answer #1

**Answer:**

Given,

Total students = 25

Number of male students = 11

Number of female students = 14

a)

To give the probability that a male is selected, then two females.

= 11/25 * 14/24 * 13/23

= 0.44 * 0.5833 * 0.5652

= 0.1451

b)

To give the probability that a female is selected, then two males

= 14/25 * 11/24 * 10/23

= 0.56 * 0.4583 * 0.4348

= 0.1116

c)

To give the probability that two females are selected, then one male

= 14/25 * 13/24 * 11/23

= 0.56 * 0.5417 * 0.4783

= 0.1451

d)

To give the probability that three males are selected

= 11/25 * 10/24 * 9/23

= 0.44 * 0.4167 * 0.3913

= 0.0717

e)

To give the probability that three females are selected

= 14/25 * 13/24 * 12/23

= 0.56 * 0.5417 * 0.5217

= 0.1583

A school club consists of 20 male students and 11 female
students. If 4 students are
selected to represent the club in the student government, what
is the probability 2 will be male
and 2 will be female? Hint: Hypergeometric

A class of 40 students, 18 are males and 22 are females.
For the final examination, 3 males and 5 females achieved a letter
grade of A. What is the probability that a randomly selected
student from the class achieved letter A grade or is a male
student?
Select one:
a. 27/40
b. 22/40
c. 25/40
d. 30/40
e. 13/30

An introductory psychology class has 30 male & 60 female
freshmen, 14 male & 14 female sophomores, 12 male & 13
female juniors, and 6 male & 6 female seniors. Suppose that 26
students are to be randomly selected without replacement. If the
first 10 students selected from the class were seniors, what is the
probability that the next student will be a senior?

In a class with 20 students, 8 males and 12 females, 5 students
are selected. Use hypergeometric distribution to find that 2 are
males and 3 are females.

About 53% of the students are females. A random sample with five
students were selected.
A. What is the probability that there is only one male student
in this sample?
B. What is the probability that there are two male students in
this sample?
C. What is the probability that there are three male students in
this sample?
D. What is the probability that there is at least one male
student in this sample?
E. Given that there is at...

At Litchfield College of Nursing, 86% of incoming freshmen
nursing students are female and 14% are male. Recent records
indicate that 60% of the entering female students will graduate
with a BSN degree, while 90% of the male students will obtain a BSN
degree. If an incoming freshman nursing student is selected at
random, find the following probabilities. (Enter your answers to
three decimal places.)
