1. Two cards are chosen at random from a deck of 52 cards without replacement. What is the probability of getting two kings? 4/52 · 3/51 = 1/ In a shipment of 100 televisions, 6 are defective. If a person buys two televisions, what is the probability that both are defective if the first television is not replaced after it is purchased? On a math test, 5 out of 20 students got an A. If three students are chosen at random without replacement, what is the probability that all three got an A on the test? 5/20 · 4/19 · 3/18 =1/114 Three cards are chosen at random from a deck of 52 cards without replacement. What is the probability of getting an ace, a king and a queen in order? 4/52 · 4/51 · 4/50 = 8/16575 A school survey found that 7 out of 30 students walk to school. If four students are selected at random without replacement, what is the probability that all four walk to school? 7/30 · 6/29 · 5/28 · 4/27 = 1/783 6/100 · 5/99 =1/330

At a middle school, 18% of all students play football and basketball, and 32% of all students play football. What is the probability that a student who plays football also plays basketball? P( BB/ FB) = P(BB F B)/P(FB) =. 18/32 = 9/16 In Europe, 88% of all households have a television. 51% of all households have a television and a VCR. What is the probability that a household with a television also has a VCR? P(VCR/ TV) = P(VCR TV/P(TV) = 51/88

A research organization mailed out questionnaires to 10 random people. If the probability that any one person will answer the questionnaire is 10%, find the probability that at least 8 will answer n = 10, k = 8, 9, 10, p = 10%, 1 - p = 90% n C k p k (1-p) n-k 10 C 8 (.1) 8 (.9) C 9 (.1) 9 (.9) C 10 (.1) 10
