1 Math 120 Practice Exam II Name You must show work for credit. 1) A pair of fair dice is rolled 50 times and the sum of the dots on the faces is noted. Outcome Frequency Compute the empirical probability that the sum rolled is greater than 9. 1) Estimate the indicated probability. 2) The Amboy Kennel Club has held an annual dog show for the last 0 years. During this time the winner of ʺBest of Showʺ has been an Alaskan Malamute 15 times, a Great Pyrenees times, and an Siberian Husky 12 times. Determine the empirical probability that the next winner of ʺBest of Showʺ will be an Alaskan Malamute. 2) ) A survey was done at a mall in which 1000 customers were asked what type of credit card they used most often. The results of the survey are shown in the figure below: ) 0.2% 7.8% 1.2% 2.5% 16.% Determine the empirical probability that a person selected at random from the 1000 surveyed uses Mastercard. 4) Determine the probability that the spinner lands on white. 4) 5) If a person is randomly selected, find the probability that his or her birthday is in May. Ignore leap years. Assume that all days of the year are equally likely for a given birth. 5) 1
2 6) When two balanced dice are rolled, there are 6 possible outcomes. Find the probability that either doubles are rolled or the sum of the dice is 8. 6) 7) A card is drawn at random from a standard 52 card deck. Find the probability that the card is an ace or not a club. 7) Find the odds. 8) 8) What are the odds in favor of drawing an even number from these cards? 9) The odds in favor of Carl beating his friend in a round of golf are 7 :.
