Question

. A particular starship has 40 Vulcans, 60 Humans, and 25 Andorians. They are selected in random order to test a rare drug which has just been discovered (with replacement). Find the probability that at least 4 must be selected in order to obtain an Andorian

Answer #1

**SOLUTION:**

From given data,

**A particular
starship has 40 Vulcans, 60 Humans, and 25 Andorians. They are
selected in random order to test a rare drug which has just been
discovered**

40 Vulcans

60 Humans

25 Andorians

Total = 40+60+25 = 125

**Find the
probability that at least 4 must be selected in order to obtain an
Andorian**

we have 25 Andorians.

P(A) = 25 / 125 = 0.2

we know that,

Law of the complement:

P(not A) = 1 - P(A)

P(not A) = 1 - (25 / 125) = 4/5 (or) 1 - 0.2 = 0.8

(4/5)*(4/5)*(4/5) = 64/125

(or)

(0.8)*(0.8)*(0.8) = 0.512

A new drug has been developed to treat a particular condition,
and it is alleged to be more effective than traditional treatment.
An experiment will be conducted to test whether the claim is true.
To perform the hypothesis test, a 95% confidence level is selected
for the hypothesis test. The new drug will be administered to a
sample of 200 individuals with the condition, selected at random.
Another 300 individuals are randomly selected to receive the
traditional treatment.

During a particular period a post office received 40 service
orders for problems with mail, of which 9 were boxes and 4 were
envelopes. A sample of 5 of these service orders is to be selected
for inclusion in a customer satisfaction survey. Suppose that the 5
are selected in a completely random fashion, so that any particular
subset of size 5 has the same chance of being selected as does any
other subset. What then is the...

A train has a 60% departure on time rate, and a random sample of
25 actual departure times is taken.
(a) Find the probability that no more than 5 are on time.
(b) Find the probability 9 or more leave on time.
(c) Find the probability a minimum of 7 leave on time

In the past, the average age of TXU employees has been 40 years.
Recently, TXU has been hiring older people. In order to determine
whether there has been an increase in the average age of all the
employees, a sample of 25 employees was selected. The sample
average age was 45 years with a standard deviation of 5 years.
Assume α = .05. What is the the p value for this test? What is the
critical value for this test?
