Section 5.5 - Independent Events
P37. Suppose you select one person at random from the Titanic passengers and crew. Use the definition of independent events to determine whether the events “didn’t survive” and “male” are independent. Are any two events in this table independent? Display 5.39 Gender Male Female Total Survived? Yes 367 344 711 No 1364 126 1490 1731 470 2201

P39. About 42% of people have type O blood. Suppose you select two people at random and check whether they have type O blood. Make a table to show all possible results. What is the probability that exactly one of the two people has type O blood? Make a tree diagram that illustrates the situation.

P41. After taking college placement tests, freshmen sometimes are required to repeat high school work. Such work is called “remediation” and does not count toward a college degree. About 11% of college freshmen have to take a remedial course in reading. Suppose you select two freshmen at random and check to see if they have to take remedial reading. Find the probability that both freshmen have to take remedial reading. Show how to use a two-way table to find the probability that exactly one freshman needs to take remedial reading Show how to use a tree-diagram to answer the question in part b.

E64. Schizophrenia affects 1% of the U.S. population and tends to first appear between the ages of 18 and 25. Today, schizophrenia accounts for the fifth highest number of years of work lost due to disability among Americans aged Fewer than 30% of people with this illness are currently employed. Suppose you select a person from the U.S. population at random. State whether each question can be answered using the information given. If the question can be answered, answer it.
