PROBABILITY THEORY: WORD PROBLEMS

Sarah is the owner of Sarah’s Pub, and her best business is on Friday and Saturday nights when customers buy plenty of alcoholic beverages (alcohol). After studying a large sample of receipts from Friday and Saturday nights, Sarah knows the following. 73% of her orders on these nights involve at least one alcohol sale. 23% of her customers order only alcohol, 28% have dinner plates, and the rest have sandwiches.   Of those who order dinner plates, 60% order alcohol; and of those who order sandwiches, 89% order alcohol. Sarah still has questions, as do I.

AMC Inc. evaluates divisional managers in part by the number of consumer complaints senior management receives every month. The expectation is that no more than 20 complaints per division per month should be flagged for corporate attention. A sample of divisional data for the last five years or 60 months was collected. AMC defined X to be a random variable counting the number of complaints when twenty or more complaints in any division required senior management attention in a month; f(X) is the relative frequency of X. 30% of all complaints requiring corporate attention fell into this category and were included in the sample.

1. (5 points) What is the probability that X = 21? In one sentence, explain how you know.

2. (5 points) What is the probability that more than 24 complaints are received per month?

Type the answer and any work below.

3. (5 points) What is the probability that fewer than 24 complaints are received per month?

Type the answer and any work below.

4. (5 points) How many complaints in this sample are expected per month?

5. (5 points) What is the standard deviation of complaints of more than 20 per quarter requiring

corporate attention? Type the answer below.

1)

 TAXI BUS RAIL UBER TOTAL CASH 25 25 12 15 77 CREDIT 20 10 47 67 144 CITY PASS 15 32 33 0 80 TOTAL 60 67 92 82 301

2)

Probability = 20/60 = 1/3 = 0.33

3)

Probability = 77+92-12 /301 = 157/301

= 0.5216

4)

Probability = 32/301

= 0.1063

5)

A= Probability of taking uber = 82/301

B =Probability of paying with credit= 144/301

P(A) .P(B) = 82/301 * 144/301 = 0.1303

Probability of both= 67/301 = 0.2226

Since both are not equal, not independent.
