Question

find the mean, variance and standard deviation for the binomial distribution below.

a) 10 coin flips, x- number of heads. use formula np, npq

b) 5 dice rolls, x= number of sixes. use formula np, npq

c) 10 item multiple choice quiz (a,b,c,d), x = number correct while guessing. use formula np, npq

d) would it be unusual to get a passing grade (6 or more correct) on a 10 item quiz, as described above, when guessing? use formula np, npq

Answer #1

**a)**

Here , we are given that :

n = Number of trials = Number of coins = 10

We know that :

p = Probability of heads = 0.5

q = 1 - p = 1 - 0.5 = 0.5

So,

**b)**

Here , we are given that :

n = Number of trials = Number of dice = 5

We know that :

p = Probability of six = 1/6

q = 1 - p = 1 - 1/6 = 5/6

So,

**c)**

Here , we are given that :

n = Number of trials = Number of items = 10

We know that :

p = Probability of correctly guessing = 1/4

q = 1 - p = 1 - 1/4 = 3/4

So,

**d)**

Any value greater than Mean + 3*Standard deviation is unusual in a data set

Mean + 3*Standard deviation = 2.5 + 3*0.968 = 5.4

So, Number of questions correctly guess below 5.4 are usual. Not more than that.

**Hence, it would be unusual to get a passing grade( 6 or
more) on a 10 item quiz**

Let X be a binomial random variable with n = 10 and p = 0.2.

Which of the following probabilities CANNOT be found using the
binomial distribution? a) The probability that 3 out of 8 tosses of
a coin will result in heads b) The probability of getting exactly
five face cards when drawing five cards without replacement from a
standard deck of 52 cards c) When randomly choosing a family with
four children, the probability that it will have exactly two boys
and two girls as children d) The probability that a student
randomly...

Jimmy has a quiz today that is multiple choice (a, b, c, or d)
with ten questions, but he did not study, so he decides to randomly
mark answers on his scantron without reading the questions.
a) Why should the number of questions Jimmy gets correct on the
quiz follow a binomial distribution, to wit, what are the
requirements to use a binomial distribution and how are they met in
this scenario?
b) List the parameters that define this distribution...

For the random variables described below, which have
binomial distributions?
You toss a balanced coin 50 times and count the number
of heads.
Replacement heart valves have a probability of 0.77 of
performing well for 15 years. It is reasonable to assume that
values in different patients fail (or not) independently of each
other. Let X be the number of patients in a group of 500 who will
need another valve replacement within 15 years.
You deal 10 cards from...

A multiple choice test consisting of 10 questions. each question
has four choices. a,b,c, and d tell how you would find the
probability of guessing at least one correct answer, without the
use of binomial probability formula. what rule would your use to
simplify your solution?

Compute P(X) using the binomial probability formula. Then
determine whether the normal distribution can be used to estimate
this probability. If so, approximate P(X) using the normal
distribution and compare the result with the exact probability.
n=6060, p=0.20.2, X=25
Can the normal distribution be used to approximate this
probability?
A. Yes, the normal distribution can be used because np(1−p) ≥
10.
B. No, the normal distribution cannot be used because np(1−p)
< 10.
C. No, the normal distribution cannot be...

answering each question correctly. Let x be the number of of
correct answers. (Round probabilities to 4 decimal places)
a. Define the Random Variable, x ~
b. What is the PDF formula?
c. Find the probability that Maya answers exactly 4 of the
questions correctly?...

Complete the following activities and then post your responses
in the Activity #5 discussion forum (link below).
Consider a short multiple choice quiz with three items, and
each item has four choices (only one of the choices is correct).
Suppose that you are taking this quiz but you are completely and
utterly unprepared for it. That means that you only option for the
quiz is to guess the answers. Suppose you are thinking about the
first item: what's the probability...
