Question

Suppose a high school teacher administers a 5 question true/false quiz to their students. Assume each student is independent, and is equally able to complete the quiz in any amount of time. The students have 10 minutes to complete the quiz.

a) [2 marks] What is the probability that a student takes less
than 8 minutes to complete the quiz?

b) [2 marks] What is the probability that a student takes more than 5 minutes to complete the quiz?

c) [1 mark] What is the probability that a student takes less than 10 minutes to complete the quiz?

Answer #1

As, the student is equally able to complete the quiz in any amount of time, we can assume that the random variable T to complete the test follows Exponential distribution with rate = 5 questions per 10 minutes = 0.5 per minute. That is, T ~ Exponential( = 0.5)

a)

Probability that a student takes less than 8 minutes to complete the quiz = P(T < 8)

= 1 - exp(-8 * 0.5) = 0.9817

b)

Probability that a student takes more than 5 minutes to complete the quiz = P(T > 5)

= exp(-5 * 0.5) = 0.082

c)

Probability that a student takes less than 10 minutes to complete the quiz = P(T < 10)

= 1 - exp(-10 * 0.5) = 0.9933

A) The amount of time it takes students to complete a quiz is
uniformly distributed between 35 to 65 minutes. One student is
selected at random. Find the following events: a. The probability
density function (pdf) of amount of time taken for the quiz. b. The probability that the student requires more than 50
minutes to complete the quiz.(1 mark) c. The probability that
completed quiz time is between 45 and 55 minutes. (1 mark) d. The
probability that the...

The average time to complete the quiz for all students in the
class is uniformly distributed between 90 minutes and 150
minutes.

A student takes a ten-question true-false quiz, but did not
study and randomly guesses each answer. Find the probability that
the student passes the quiz with a grade of at least 40% of the
questions correct. (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

A student is taking a multiple-choice quiz in which each
question has five possible answers, exactly one of which is
correct. He knows 85% of the material being tested. Assume the
teacher has chosen the questions independently and at random from
among all the questions she could have chosen.
When the student knows the correct answer to a given question,
he has a 98% chance of marking it correctly. When he does not know
the answer, he answers by marking...

you are taking a quiz with 10 true-false questions. What is the
probability that you will be able to choose a random answer on
every question and get 9 or 10 correct answers?

A student takes a 19 question multiple choice quiz with 4
choices for each question. If the student guesses at random on each
question, what is the probability that the student gets more than 2
questions correct?

True OR False Question
A teacher gives a 30-point test to 10 students. The
scores are shown here. Find the percentile rank of the score of 6,
8, 12, 12,12, 15, 17, 18, 25, 30
The percentile Rank for the score of 25 is 85% or 85
Percentile.
TRUE
FALSE

10. The grade distribution of a Basic English course in a high
school (total 3500 students) is normally distributed with its mean,
3.2 and standard deviation, 0.61. 1) If a student is randomly
selected, find the probability that the student’s score is higher
than 3.0?2) If you collect a sample of 30 students, what is the
probability that the sample mean is less than 3.0?

7. A class of 58 students takes a true-false quiz consisting of
20 questions. Each answer will get
a score of 1 if it is correct and -1 otherwise; no other score
is possible.
The GSIs keep track of the number of answers each student gets
correct. The average of these
58 numbers is 16.1 and the SD is 2.3.
In each of the following parts, find the quantity if it is
possible to do so with the information
given....
