3. There are 18 books along a shelf. You choose 2 at random without replacement. How many possible combinations are there if ORDER MATTERS?

Answer #1

1. The mean and standard deviation for a given data set are μ = 100 and σ = 15. By Chebyshev's Theorem, least what percentage of the data lie between 70 and 130?

**By Chebyshev's Theorem, 75% percentage of the data lie
between 70 and 130.**

2.

Suppose that you roll a die. The set of possible outcomes is S = {1,2,3,4,5,6}.

Let A = {3,4,5,6} (rolling a 3 to 6). Let B = {1,3,5} (rolling an odd number). What is P(A|B)?

**P(A|B) = P(A and B ) / P ( B ) = (2/6) / (3/6) = 2/3 =
0.6667**

3. There are 18 books along a shelf. You choose 2 at random without replacement. How many possible combinations are there if ORDER MATTERS?

**18P2 = 306**

**306 ways to choose 2 book at random**

We have seen that the standard deviation σ measures the spread
of a data set about the mean μ. Chebyshev's inequality
gives an estimate of how well the standard deviation measures that
spread. One consequence of this inequality is that for every data
set at least 75% of the data points lie within two standard
deviations of the mean, that is, between μ − 2σ and μ + 2σ
(inclusive). For example, if μ = 20 and σ = 5,...

A data set has a mean of 1500 and a standard deviation of
100.
a. Using Chebyshev's theorem, what percentage of the
observations fall between 1300 and 1700? (Do not round
intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest whole
percent.)
b. Using Chebyshev’s theorem, what percentage of the
observations fall between 1200 and 1800? (Do not round
intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest whole
percent.)

Whenever a standard six-sided die is rolled, one of the
following six possible outcomes will occur by chance: , , , , , and
.
These random outcomes are represented by the population data
values: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
At the beginning of Week 4, take a random sample of size n = 9
from this population by actually rolling a standard six-sided die 9
separate times and recording your results. If you do not have

Suppose data set X has mean μ = 400 and standard deviation σ =
50. If a random sample
of size 100 is collected and ̄x is the sample mean, compute P(395 ≤
x ̄ ≤ 410).

1. Given that x is a normal variable with mean
μ = 112 and standard deviation σ = 14, find the
following probabilities. (Round your answers to four decimal
places.)
(a) P(x ≤ 120)
(b) P(x ≥ 80)
(c) P(108 ≤ x ≤ 117)
2. Police response time to an emergency call is the difference

Do the following problems. 1. Each of three barrels from a
manufacturing line are classified as either above (a) or below (b)

each of two soldered parts is measured and labeled as either low
(l), medium (m), or high (h). State the number of elements in the
