people volunteer to attend. How many different groups of three can be selected ?


c) Three movies are to shown at a local theater. The movies will be selected in the following format;
The first movie will chosen from a group of six G-rated movies. The second movie will be selected from a group of five

PG rated movies. The last movie selected will come from any one of seven unrated movies.

How many different groups of movies can be shown ? _______________

a) A company has two openings in its accounting department. A total of twenty applicants are interviewed for the job.

Eight of the applicants are female.

How many different ways can the company fill the two opening if anybody can be chosen ? __________

How many ways if at least one must be female ? _____________

What is the probability that exactly one is a female ? __________________
11b) A family drives to the local shop to pick up a fresh Christmas tree. The store has 20 available trees – four of these have

a minor but visible defect. Once there they decide to pick up an additional two trees. If the trees are selected at


a) how many different groups of trees could be selected ? ____________

b) how many groups of trees with only one defective tree ? _________________

c) what is the probability that the group selected has only one bad tree ?

a) A box contains four red balls, 1 blue ball, and 5 yellow balls. You draw a ball record the outcome and replace the ball.

Suppose that three balls are drawn in this manner.

What is the probability of drawing
1) all blue balls ? ______________ 2) exactly 2 red and 1 yellow ? ______________

b) If the balls are not replaced, what is the probability of drawing

1) all blue balls ? ______________ 2) exactly 2 red and 1 yellow ? ______________

13. A Bernoulli Experiment consists of how many outcomes ? __________

What are they called ?

If a Bernoulli Experiment is repeated n times ( n-independent trials), then what do we call the experiment ?

14. What is the formula that we called the Binomial formula – ( this means give me the formula !)

15. Simplify C( 40, 2) ( 0.2)2(0.8)38 = ____________

16. Every time a ship leaves the harbor during a storm, there is a 2 % that the ship will sink. Last week twenty ships left

the harbor during a storm. What is the probability that

a) exactly 7 of the ships will sink ? ___________ b) at least one will sink ? __________
IF an experiment can be classified an a binomial experiment, we can find the expected value µ = E( X ) by
µ = np and the variance 2 by  2 = npq.

If the experiment above (#16) is a binomial experiment,

define the random variable x, define success, find success probability, and finish by finding
the expected value and the variance.

0 2/7
1 4/7
