A researcher surveyed college students to study their opinion about the proposed change in smoking rules. The researcher asked a group of 30 students: 12 of them supported the change, 13 of them did not, and 5 had no opinion. This is not a binomial model because…

A….the students who strongly supported the change and those who only mildly supported the change are counted the same.

B….there are 3 possible outcomes, not 2.

C.30 students are not enough for a good sample

D….less than half of the students supported the change. Reset Selection

Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.

Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values.

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.

If a gambler rolls two dice and gets a sum of four, he wins $10; and if he gets a sum of three, he wins $25. The cost to play the game is $5. What is the expectation of this game?

Place your answer, rounded to two decimal places, in the blank. When entering your answer do not use a dollar sign. However, if the expected payoff is negative be sure to use a minus sign. For example, -1.23 would be a legitimate entry.

In February 2002 the Argentine peso lost 70% of its value compared to the United States dollar. This devaluation drastically raised the price of imported products. According to a survey conducted by AC Nielsen in April 2002, 68% of the consumers in Argentina were buying fewer products than before the devaluation, 24% were buying the same number of products, and 8% were buying more products. Furthermore, in a trend toward purchasing less-expensive brands, 88% indicated that they had changed the brands they purchased. Suppose the following complete set of results were reported. Use the following data to answer this question.

An ice cream vendor sells three flavors: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Forty five percent of the sales are chocolate, while 30% are strawberry, with the rest vanilla flavored. Sales are by the cone or the cup. The percentages of cones sales for chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, are 75%, 60%, and 40%, respectively. For a randomly selected sale, define the following events:

f$A_{1}f$ = chocolate chosen

f$A_{2}f$ = strawberry chosen

f$A_{3}f$ = vanilla chosen

f$Bf$ = ice cream on a cone

f$ar{B}=f$ ice cream in a cup

Find the probability that the ice cream was sold in a cup and was chocolate flavor. Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank. For exampe, 0.3456 would be a legitimate entry.
