Question

In a small class of twelve students, two did not do the homework. The professor randomly selects half of the students to present solutions to homework problems on the board. Find the expected value for the number of selected students that did not do the assignment.

Answer #1

Number of students in the class = 12

Number of students that did not do the home work = 2

Probability of a randomly selected student did not do the home work

= Number of students that did not do the home work / Number of students in the class

=2/12 = 1/6

Number of students selected by the professor to to present solutions to homework problems on the board : n = 6

X : Number of selected students that did not do the assignment.

X follows binomial distribution with n= 6 and p = 1/6

Expected Value of Binomial distribution: E(X) = np

Therefore,

Expected value for the number of selected students that did not do the assignment : E(X) = np = 6 x (1/6) =1

**Expected value for the number of selected students
that did not do the assignment = 1**

This past semester, a professor had a small business
calculus section. The students in the class were Jim, Jinita, Dave,
William, Neta, and Allison. Suppose the professor randomly selected
two people to go to the board to work problems. What is the
probability that Neta is the first person chosen to go to the board
and Dave is the second?
P(Neta is chosen first and Dave is second)=
___

one professor grades homework by randomly choosing 5 out of
11homework problems to grade.
a.) how many different groups of 5 problems can be chosen
fromthe 11 problems?
b.) probability extension: jerry did only 5 problems of one
assignment. what is the probability that the problems he
didcomprised the group that was selected to be graded?
c.) silvia did 8 problems. how many different groups of 5 did
she complete?
d.) what is the probability that one of the groups...

Question 3
A college professor claims the proportion of students that
complete a homework assignment is 70%. To
test this claim, a random sample of students are monitored and
checked if they completed the home the algebra class.
Assume that the test statistic for this hypothesis test is
−1.73.
Since this is a two tailed hypothesis test, assume that the
critical values for this hypothesis test are −1.96 and 1.96.
Come to a decision for the hypothesis test and interpret...

9.Approximately 80% of students do their homework in time. Each
student does homework independently. In a class of 40, what is the
probability that 35 students will do their homework on time?
Students are selected randomly.
A. 0.0001817 B.0.0167 C.0.0854 D.0.2783 E.0.8 F.0.9171

Question 56 To save time, Nivaldo's chemistry professor grades
only two randomly chosen problems of a ten-problem assignment.
Suppose that Nivaldo has 6 of 10 problems correct on the
assignment.
(a) Compute the probability that both randomly chosen problems
are correct. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
(b) Compute the probability that both randomly chosen problems are
incorrect. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
(c) Compute the expected value of the number of correct problems
chosen by the...

10.Approximately 80% of students do their homework in time. Each
student does homework independently. In a class of 40, what is the
probability that at least 39 students will do their homework on
time? Students are selected randomly.

Issue 1: Pearson Correlation Coefficient
One professor who teaches statistics gave students one homework
assignment. He asked students to find a two-variable data set and
compute the Pearson correlation coefficient. One student found a
data set: one variable is students’ midterm test score in an
introductory microeconomics class and total observations are 45
students; while the other one variable is also students’ midterm
test score in another introductory microeconomics class and total
observations are 57 students. Both of these two...

A large statistics class consists of 250 students. On the final
exam, the professor worries that question 13 might be unfair. He
resolves to drop question 13 if less than 40% of the class
correctly answers the question. After grading 125 randomly selected
final exams (out of 250 taken), a student calls the professor and
asks if question 13 will be dropped. The professor looks at the
graded exams and notes that 46 of the 125 graded exams got question...

A graduate class in computer science consists of six students,
three men and three women. During the last two days of the
semester, presentations are made by the students, three
presentations on each day. The professor randomly selects the
students to make presentations. If, on the first of the two days, a
man is selected to give the first presentation, what is the
probability that two women and a man will give presentations on the
second day?
