## Q:

### Your roommate loves to eat Chinese food for dinner. He estimates that on any given night, there’s a 30% chance he’ll choose to eat Chinese food. Although he loves Chinese food, he doesn’t like to eat it too much in a short period of time, so on most weeks he eats several different kinds of foods for dinner. Suppose you wanted to calculate the probability that, over the next 7 days, you friend eats Chinese food at least 3 times. Which of the following is the most accurate statement about calculating this probability?

## Q:

### Which of the following is true? Hint: It might be useful to sketch the distributions.

## Q:

### More than three-quarters of the nation’s colleges and universities now offer online classes, and about 23% of college graduates have taken a course online. 39% of those who have taken a course online believe that online courses provide the same educational value as one taken in person, a view shared by only 27% of those who have not taken an online course. At a coffee shop you overhear a recent college graduate discussing that she doesn’t believe that online courses provide the same educational value as one taken in person. What’s the probability that she has taken an online course before?

## Q:

### One strange phenomenon that sometimes occurs at U.S. airport security gates is that an otherwise law-abiding passenger is caught with a gun in his/her carry-on bag. Usually the passenger claims he/she forgot to remove the handgun from a rarely-used bag before packing it for airline travel. It’s estimated that every day 3,000,000 gun owners fly on domestic U.S. flights. Suppose the probability a gun owner will mistakenly take a gun to the airport is 0.00001. What is the probability that tomorrow more than 35 domestic passengers will accidentally get caught with a gun at the airport? Choose the closest answer.

## Q:

### Your boss is a biologist who needs wood samples from long-leaf pine trees with a fungal disease which is only visible under a microscope, and she sends you on an assignment to collect the samples. She wants at least 50 different diseased samples. She tells you that approximately 28% of long-leaf pine trees currently have the fungal disease. If you sample 160 long-leaf pine trees at random, what is the probability you’ll have at least 50 diseased samples to return to your boss? (Use the normal approximation to calculate this probability and chose the closest answer to the question.)
