Question

Number of Children

Salary 2 or fewer children more than 2 children

high salary 0.13 0.02

medium salary 0.20 0.10

low salary 0.30 0.25

Let A denote the event that a working woman has 2 or fewer children, and let B denote the event that a working woman has a low salary.

a. If a working woman has 2 or fewer children, what is the probability that she has a low salary?

b. What is the probability that a working woman has 2 or fewer
children or has a low salary?

Answer #1

We are given here that:

A: woman has <= 2 children

B: woman has low salary

a) Probability that the woman has low salary given that woman
has <= 2 children is denoted as: P(B|A)

This is computed using bayes theorem as:

**Therefore 0.4762 is the required probability
here.**

b) The probability here is computed using the addition law of
probability as:

**Therefore 0.88 is the required probability
here.**

A researcher studied the relationship between the salary of a
working woman with school-aged children and the number of children
she had. The results are shown in the following probability
table:

more than 2 children
high salary
0.13

medium salary
0.20

The probability that a woman works full-time, given that she has
children is 527. If we know that 30 women in a sample work
full-time and 27 women have children, fill in the Venn diagram
below with the number of women to reflect this probability.
Let Event A represent working full-time, and Event B represent
having children.

Based on the number of voids, a ferrite slab is classied as
either high, medium, or low. Historically, 5% of the slabs are
classied as high, 90% as medium, and 5% as low. A sample of 20
slabs is selected for testing. Let X; Y; and Z denote the number of
slabs that are independently classied as high, medium, and low,
respectively

More than a decade ago, high levels of lead in the blood put 84%
of children at risk. A concerted effort was made to remove lead
from the environment. Now, suppose only 13% of children in the
United States are at risk of high blood-lead levels.
(a) In a random sample of 220 children taken more than a decade
ago, what is the probability that 50 or more had high blood-lead
levels? (Round your answer to three decimal places.) (b)...

More than a decade ago, high levels of lead in the blood put 87%
of children at risk. A concerted effort was made to remove lead

The backoff torque required to remove bolts in a steel plate is
rated as high, moderate, or low. Historically, the probability of a
high, moderate, or low rating is 0.61, 0.25, or 0.14, respectively.
A sample of 15 bolts are selected for testing. Let X,
Y, and Z denote the number of bolts that are
independently rated as high, moderate, and low, respectively.
Determine the following probabilities.

The manager of a music store has kept records of the number of
CDs bought in a single transaction by customers who make a purchase
