Question 1
Assume that a procedure yields a binomial distribution with a trial repeated n times. use the binomial probability formula to find the probability of x successes given the probability p of success on a single trial. Round to three decimal places. n = 4, x = 3, p = 1/6.

Question 2
use Bayes' theorem to find the indicated probability.
5.8% of a population is infected with a certain disease. There is a test for the disease, however the test is not completely accurate. 93.9% of those who have the disease test positive. However 4.1% of those who do not have the disease also test positive (false positives). A person is randomly selected and tested for the disease.
What is the probability that the person has the disease given that the test result is positive?

Given the following sample data: 1.3, 2.2, 2.7, 3.1, 3.3, 3.7, use quantile() in R with type = 2 to find the estimated 63rd percentile. Pick the correct answer.

Question 5
Solve the problem.
A study of the amount of time it takes a mechanic to rebuild the transmission for a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier shows that the mean is 8.4 hours and the standard deviation is 1.8 hours. If a random sample of 40 mechanics is selected, find the probability that their mean rebuild time exceeds 8.7 hours. Assume the mean rebuild time has a normal distribution. (Hint, interpolate in the tables or use pnorm().)

Question 9
Find the indicated probability.
In a homicide case 4 different witnesses picked the same man from a line up. The line up contained 5 men. If the identifications were made by random guesses, find the probability that all 4 witnesses would pick the same person. (Hint-there is more than one way the witnesses can agree.)
