Question

Suppose we are selecting a group of representatives from the
110th US Senate. In this year, there were 49 Republicans and 51
Democrats*. Use this information to answer the following.

*Technically, 2 of these Senators were Independents or Independent
Democrats, but caucused with the Democratic Party.

*Remember the rounding convention for a decimal value with more
than 3 zeroes is to round to the second non-zero digit.*

Step 1 of 6: If we choose a committee of 12 at random, what is the probability that they will all be Republicans?

Step 2 of 6: If we choose a committee of 12 at random, what is the probability that the committee will contain all Democrats (for this question, do not separate out the Independent Senators)?

Step 3 of 6: If we choose a committee of 12 at random, what is
the probability that the committee will contain all Democrats (for
this question, **DO**separate out the Independent
Senators)?

Step 4 of 6: If we choose a committee of 12 at random, what is the probability that the committee will contain exactly half Democrats (for this question, do not separate out the Independent Senators) and half Republicans?

Step 5 of 6: Interpret your probability from the previous step.

Step 6 of 6: Using your previous answers, which, if any of the committees discussed would be unusual?

Answer #1

5) the probability computed in step 4 is 0.24 ie, 24% of the times the committee will have half republicans and half democrats.

6) the committees discussed in step 1,2 and 3 will be very unsual as their probabilities are very low(almost equal to 0). the committee discussed in step 4 is not as unusual as the probability is not equal to 0.

The Louisiana State Senate contains 14 Democrats and 25
Republicans. A committee of 4 members is being selected. Use this
information to answer the following.
Step 1 of 5: If the committee is selected at random, what is the
probability that all of the members are Democrats?
Step 2 of 5:
If the committee is selected at random, what is the probability
that all of the members are Republicans?
Step 3 of 5:
If the committee is selected at random,...
