Question

a. The following events are mutually exclusive: Living in
California and watching American Idol. **True or
False**

b. The number of patients seen by an outpatient practice is an
example of a discrete random variable. **True or
False**

c.The law of large numbers states that as the number of times an
event experiment is conducted increases, the likelihood of the
actual probability of an event approaching the theoretical
probability decreases. **True or False**

d. Measuring the time it takes for patients to enter the
operating room is an example of a continuous random variable.
**True or False**

Answer #1

**True.**Living in California and watching American Idol are mutually exclusive**True.**The number of patients seen by an outpatient practice is an example of a discrete random variable since the number of patients can attain only discrete positive integer values.**False.**The law of large number states that as the sample size increases, its mean gets closer to the average of the whole population.**True.**Measuring the time it takes for patients to enter the operating room is an example of a continuous random variable.

True or False:
10. The probability of an event is a value which must be greater
than 0 and less than 1.
11. If events A and B are mutually exclusive, then P(A|B) is always
equal to zero.
12. Mutually exclusive events cannot be independent.
13. A classical probability measure is a probability assessment
that is based on relative frequency.
14. The probability of an event is the product of the probabilities
of the sample space outcomes that correspond to...
