Question

Let's say that you play basketball very well and you are at
the free throw line 10 times during the Crown Invitational
Basketball Tournament. The chance of you making a free throw is 90%
based on the data from a full season of basketball games. If you
shoot 10 free throws during this game...

1. What is the probability that you make exactly 9 shots? (we
will assume all ten are independent from one another)

2. What is the probability that you make at least 9 shots? (we
will assume at ten are independent from one another)

3. Is this what you expected? Any surprises?

Answer #1

1)

Here, n = 10, p = 0.9, (1 - p) = 0.1 and x = 9

As per binomial distribution formula P(X = x) = nCx * p^x * (1 -
p)^(n - x)

We need to calculate P(X = 9)

P(X = 9) = 10C9 * 0.9^9 * 0.1^1

P(X = 9) = 0.3874

2)

Here, n = 10, p = 0.9, (1 - p) = 0.1 and x = 9

As per binomial distribution formula P(X = x) = nCx * p^x * (1 -
p)^(n - x)

We need to calculate P(X >= 9).

P(X >= 9) = (10C9 * 0.9^9 * 0.1^1) + (10C10 * 0.9^10 *
0.1^0)

P(X >= 9) = 0.3874 + 0.3487

P(X >= 9) = 0.7361

3)

mena = np

= 10 * 0.9

= 9

the
probability of chester making a free throw in the championship
basketball game is 80% and each throw is independent of his last
throw. assume that chester attempts five throws during the game.
what is the probability that he will make less than two of his free
throws durinf the game? round three decimal places

A basketball player steps to the line to shoot three
free-throws. If her free-throw completion average is .95 and we
assume her probability of completion is constant and each shot is
independent, what is the probability that she completes at least
two free-throws? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
The answer is supposed to be .993 how do you get this
answer?

In a national basketball association, the top free-throw
shooters usually have probability of about 0.80 of making any given
free throw.
a. a. During a game, one such player shot 10 free throws. Let
X=number of free throws made. What must you assume in order for X
to have a binomial distribution?
b. What is the value of n and p
c. Find the probability that the player made all 10 free
throws, 9 free throws, and more than 7...

Jamal Crawford of the National Basketball Association’s Portland
Trail Blazers is the best free-throw shooter on the team, making
96% of his shots Assume that late in a basketball game, Jamal
Crawford is fouled and is awarded two shots.
a. What is the probability that he will make both shots?
b. What is the probability that he will make at least one shot?

At half-time of a basketball game, a spectator is selected to
play a game: She will make two free throw attempts. If she makes
neither free throw, she wins $0. If she makes one out of the two
free throws, she may draw one bill from a bag containing ten
1-dollar bills and five 5-dollar bills. If she makes both free
throw attempts, she may draw two bills from the bag. Assume that
her free throw attempts are independent and...

Suppose a basketball player makes 36% of the 3-point shots, 60%
of the 2-point shots and 70% of the free throw (1 point) shots they
take?
How many points does the player make per 3-point shot?
How many points does the player make per 2-point
shot?
Should they be taking more 3 point shots or 2 point shots?
(according to math)
Should they be taking more 3 point shots or 2 point shots?
(according to game situations)
Suppose that...

If layne is a 75% free-throw shooter, A)what is the
probability that she makes exactly 3 of the 5 shots that she takes
in the game?
B) what is the probability that she misses 2 of the 5 shots that
she takes in the game?
using the information above about Laynes free-throw
shooting ability. Assume that Layne is a 43% 3-point shooter. your
team is ahead by 2 points with less than a second on the clock and
Layne is...

Amy is playing basketball. The probability that Amy makes a
basket from the free throw line is p = 4/5. The probability of
making any free throw is the same regardless of recent attempts
made.
(a) (1 point) Is the event that Amy makes her second free throw
independent of the event that she makes her first free throw?
(b) (3 points) A made free throw is worth one point. A miss
scores zero points. If Amy takes three free...

15. (9 pts) A particular basketball player has a season
long free throw percentage of 55%. The player takes 7 free
throws.
a) Explain why this is a binomial
probability.
b) Create a table with the probability
distribution.
c) Create the histogram for the probability
distribution.
