1. There are 30 students in a class of which 20 are girls. A group of 7 students is to be selected to work together. Based on the following 15 resamples (numbers 1-20 stand for girls), estimate the probability of selecting at least 5 girls in this group.

3. Assume that in a certain country,C, 23% of deaths are caused by the disease D. In other words, the probability that a citizen of C will die of D is .23. Suppose we want to know the probability that 3 of the next 10 unrelated deaths are caused by D. We decide to perform 100 resampling trials to determine the probability. So we let 1-23 represent D and 24-100 represent not D. Which of the following is a correct input to the class resampling code?
 

 

	Number of trials = 100
	Minimum Value = 1
	Maximum Value = 23
	Number to sample = 10
	With Replacement

	Number of trials = 100
	Minimum Value = 1
	Maximum Value = 23
	Number to sample = 10
	Without Replacement

	Number of trials = 100
	Minimum Value = 1
	Maximum Value = 100
	Number to sample = 10
	With Replacement

	Number of trials = 100
	Minimum Value = 1
	Maximum Value = 100
	Number to sample = 3
	Without Replacement
4. Suppose X is the number spun on a spinner with the numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 on it. Suppose the probaility of a 1 is 0.2, of a 2 is 0.2, and of a 3 is 0.2. What is the probability that X is 4?

5. Suppose X is the number spun on a spinner with the numbers 5, 6 ,7 and 10 on it. Suppose the probaility of a 5 is 0.2, of a 6 is 0.3, and of a 7 is 0.1, and of a 10 is 0.4. What is the mean of X?
