Question 10

1. Determine whether the given procedure results

in a binomial distribution. If not, state the reason why. Rolling a single die

57 times, keeping track of the numbers that are rolled.

Not binomial: there are too many trials.

Not binomial: the trials are not independent.

Procedure results in a binomial distribution.

Not binomial: there are more than two outcomes

for each trial.

Question 11

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 = 5, x = 2, p =

Question 15

1. Use the Poisson model to approximate the

probability. Round your answer to four decimal places. Suppose the probability

of a major earthquake on a given day is 1 out of 15,000. Use the Poisson

distribution to approximate the probability that there will be at least one

major earthquake in the next 2000 days.

Question 16

1. Given the linear correlation coefficient r

and the sample size n, determine the critical values of r and use your finding

to state whether or not the given r represents a significant linear

correlation. Use a significance level of 0.05. r = 0.523, n = 25

Critical values: r = ±0.487, significant linear

correlation

Critical values: r = ±0.396, no significant

linear correlation

Critical values: r = ±0.396, significant linear

correlation

Critical values: r = ±0.487, no significant
