##### Question 2 of 40
2.5 Points

##### Question 3 of 40
2.5 Points
A study of 600 college students taking Statistics 101 revealed that 54 students received the grade of A. Typically 10% of the class gets an A. The difference between this group of students and the expected value is not significant at the 0.05 level. What does this mean in this case?

 A. The probability that the difference occurred due to chance is less than 0.05. B. The probability of getting an A is 10% and only 9% got an A in this study. The difference is less than 5% so it is not significant. C. There is not enough information to make any conclusion. D. The probability that the difference occurred due to chance is more than 0.05.
##### Question 4 of 40
2.5 Points
A committee of three people is to be formed. The three people will be selected from a list of five possible committee members. A simple random sample of three people is taken, without replacement, from the group of five people. Using the letters A, B, C, D, E to represent the five people, list the possible samples of size three and use your list to determine the probability that B is included in the sample. (Hint: There are 10 possible samples.)

##### Question 5 of 40
2.5 Points

##### Question 6 of 40
2.5 Points
In the first series of rolls of a die, the number of odd numbers exceeded the number of even numbers by 5. In the second series of rolls of the same die, the number of odd numbers exceeded the number of even numbers by 11. Determine which series is closer to the 50/50 ratio of odd/even expected of a fairly rolled die.

 A. The second series is closer because the difference between odd and even numbers is greater than the difference for the first series. B. The first series is closer because the difference between odd and even numbers is less than the difference for the second series. C. Since 1/2 > 1/5 > 1/11, the first series is closer. D. The series closer to the theoretical 50/50 cannot be determined unless the total number of rolls for both series is given.
##### Question 7 of 40
2.5 Points
A study of students taking Statistics 101 was done. Four hundred students who studied for more than 10 hours averaged a B. Two hundred students who studied for less than 10 hours averaged a C. This difference was significant at the 0.01 level. What does this mean?

 A. The probability that the difference was due to chance alone is greater than 0.01. B. There is less than a 0.01 chance that the first groupâ€™s grades were better by chance alone. C. The improvement was due to the fact that more people studied. D. There is not enough information to make any conclusion.
##### Question 8 of 40
2.5 Points
A bag contains four chips of which one is red, one is blue, one is green, and one is yellow. A chip is selected at random from the bag and then replaced in the bag. A second chip is then selected at random. Make a list of the possible outcomes (for example, RB represents the outcome red chip followed by blue chip) and use your list to determine the probability that the two chips selected are the same color. (Hint: There are 16 possible outcomes.)

 A. 1/4 B. 3/4 C. 2/16 D. 3/16
##### Question 9 of 40
2.5 Points
On a multiple choice test, each question has 6 possible answers. If you make a random guess on the first question, what is the probability that you are correct?

 A. 1/5 B. 1/6 C. 1/4 D. 2/5
##### Question 10 of 40
2.5 Points
Joe dealt 20 cards from a standard 52-card deck, and the number of red cards exceeded the number of black cards by 8. He reshuffled the cards and dealt 30 cards. This time, the number of red cards exceeded the number of black cards by 10. Determine which deal is closer to the 50/50 ratio of red/black expected of fairly dealt hands from a fair deck and why.

 A. The first series is closer because 1/10 is farther from 1/2 than is 1/8. B. The series closer to the theoretical 50/50 cannot be determined unless the number of red and black cards for each deal is given. C. The second series is closer because 20/30 is closer to 1/2 than is 14/20. D. The first series is closer because the difference between red and black is smaller than the difference in the second series.
##### Question 11 of 40
2.5 Points
If you flip a coin three times, the possible outcomes are HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT. What is the probability that at least two heads occur consecutively?
