19. You roll two standard number cubes. What is the probability that the sum is odd, given than one of the number cubes shows a 1? Show your work.

there are 6 numbers per cube,  the chance of rolling one and getting the number 1 is a 1/6 probability for the sum to be odd, you need to roll either a 2, 4 or 6 on the second cube so that gives you a 3/6 probability  so 1/6 x …

bridge hand is made up of 13 cards from a deck of 52. Find the probability that a hand chosen at random contains at least 1 nine. The probability that a bridge hand chosen at random contains at least 1 nine is:

C(n,r) = n!/(r!(n-r)!) You take the number of possible 13 card hands with no 9 in them and subtract that from the total number of possible 13 card hands 9’s included. so C(52,13) – C(48,13)The number of all possible 13 card hands is:52!/13!(52-13)! or 52!/13!*39! which is 635,013,559,600 The number …

Brenda throws a dart at this square-shaped target: Part A: Is the probability of hitting the black circle inside the target closer to 0 or 1? Explain your answer. (5 points) Part B: Is the probability of hitting the white portion of the target closer to 0 or 1? Explain your answer. (5 points)

Either way.  The probability of hitting the circle is: P(C)=Area of circle divided by area of square P(W)=(area of square minus area of circle divided by area of square P(C)=(πr^2)/s^2 P(W)=(s^2-πr^2)/s^2 … Okay with know dimensions, r=1 (because r=d/2 and d=2 so r=1), s=11 we have: P(inside circle)=π/121  (≈0.0259  or …

The body temperatures of adults are normally distributed with a mean of 98.6° f and a standard deviation of 0.60° f. if 36 adults are randomly selected, find the probability that their mean body temperature is greater than 98.4° f. 0.0228 0.8188 0.9360 0.9772

Here the population standard deviation is 0.60 degree F.  If a sample of 36 adults is randomly selected, that results in a sample standard deviation of 0.60 degree F divided by the square root of 36:  0.10 degree F. The probability in question is the area under the standard normal …

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors. So, the …

Imagine tossing a coin: What are your chances for tossing a head? What are your chances for tossing a tail? A coin is tossed 10 times: How many times do you expect to get heads? How many times do you expect to get tails? Using this data for the 10 coin tosses, calculate and record the deviation observed from what you expected using the following formula: The more the experimental results deviate from the expected results, the more the deviation value will approach the value of 1.0. As your results get closer to the expected results, the deviation is smaller and nears the value of 0.0. Interpret the meaning of the deviation value you obtained. A coin is tossed 100 times: How many times do you expect to get heads? How many times do you expect to get tails? Using this data for 100 coin tosses: Calculate the deviation for the 100 tosses. The 100 coin tosses are repeated. The results are added to the results of the first 100 coin tosses. How many times do you expect to get heads out of the 200 tosses? How many times do you expect to get tails out of the 200 tosses? Using this data for the 200 coin tosses: What is the deviation for the 200 tosses? How does increasing the total number of coin tosses from 10 to 100 affect the deviation? How does increasing the total number of tosses from 100 to 200 (or more) affect the deviation? What two important probability principles were established in this exercise? With two coins, both coins are tossed 100 times. How many times do you expect to get 2 heads? How many times do you expect to get 2 tails? How many times do you expect to get one head and one tail? The percent of occurrence is the obtained results divided by the total tosses and multiplied by 100. Using this data for the two coins being tossed 100 times. Calculate the percent occurrence for each combination: What is the percent of occurrence for two heads? What is the percent of occurrence for two tails? What is the percent of occurrence for one head and one tail?
