Question

3. A gambler was watching a dice game and noticed that one of the dice seemed to come up with a “3” more often than it should. He grabbed the die and rolled it 60 times. He got a “3” 15 times.

a) State the null hypothesis and make the null box. State the alternative hypothesis.

b) Find the z-statistic for testing whether the null hypothesis

c) Find the corresponding P-value. What can you conclude?

Answer #1

Given , n= 60 , x= 15

p (get 3) =15/60 =1/4

Null hypothesis H0 : P= 1/6 that is dice is unbiased

Alternative hypothesis

let level of significance

Z = 5/ 2.8868

Z = 1.732

**critical value of Z =1.96**

**p value =0.0832**

Conclusion : **since p value 0.0832 > 0.05 also** 1.732 < **1.96**

**Fail to Reject H0**

**We conclude that dice is
unbiased**

A gambler complained about the dice. They seemed to be loaded!
The dice were taken off the table and tested one at a time. One die
was rolled 300 times and the following frequencies were
recorded.
Outcome 1 2 3
4 5 6
Observed frequency O 60 44
59 34 46 57
Do these data indicate that the die is unbalanced? Use a 1% level
of significance. Hint: If the die is balanced, all outcomes should
have the same expected...

A gambler plays a dice game where a pair of fair dice are rolled
one time and the sum is recorded. The gambler will continue to
place $2 bets that the sum is 6, 7, 8, or 9 until she has won 7 of
these bets. That is, each time the dice are rolled, she wins $2 if
the sum is 6, 7, 8, or 9 and she loses $2 each time the sum is not
6, 7, 8, or...

A game is played. One dollar is bet and 3 dice are rolled. If
the sum of the eyes of the dice is smaller than 5, one wins 20
dollar otherwise one looses the 1 dollar.
Find the approximation of the distribution of the total wins
after 200 games. What is the Probabilty that the total win is
positive. Use the CLT and state why.

One of the most popular games of chance is a dice game known as
“craps”, played in casinos around the world. Here are the rules of
the game:
A player rolls two six-sided die, which means he can roll a 1,
2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 on either die. After the dice come to rest they are
added together and their sum determines the outcome. If the sum is
7 or 11 on the first roll, the player wins....

You are playing another dice game where you roll just one
die--this time, you lose a point if you roll a 1. You are
going to roll the die 60 times. Use that information to answer the
remaining questions.
A. What are the values of p and q? (Hint: notice this is
binomial data, where p is the probability of losing a point and q
is the probability of not losing a point.) p =
and q =
B....

1.A weekend TV game show called rolling a dice is running each
week. For each roll, if the dice shows an odd number the
participate earns 5 dollars and otherwise, he gets nothing. Each
participate can roll the dice 20 times. Let X denote the number
times the dice shows an odd number.
a) (2 mark) Calculate the average earning of a
participate.
b) Calculate the probability that ? ⩽ 2 (show your
final answer correct to four decimal places)....

Matt thinks that he
has a special relationship with the number 4. In particular, Matt
thinks that he would roll a 4 with a fair 6-sided die more often
than you'd expect by chance alone. Suppose pp is the true
proportion of the time Matt will roll a 4.
(a) State the null and alternative hypotheses for testing Matt's
claim. (Type the symbol "p" for the population proportion,
whichever symbols you need of "<", ">", "=", "not =" and
express...

Matt thinks that he has a special relationship with the number
6. In particular, Matt thinks that he would roll a 6 with a fair
6-sided die more often than you'd expect by chance alone. Suppose
?p is the true proportion of the time Matt will roll a 6.
