Express All Probability Answers As Percentages
Probability Review Guide
Express all probability answers as percentages.
1. You spin the spinner to the right and then flip a fair two-sided coin (heads/tails).
a. List the sample space for this chance experiment.
b. List the outcomes that make up the event “Spin an odd number and flip tails”?
c. What is the probability of spinning an odd number and flipping tails?
e. What is the probability of spinning a 3 or flipping heads? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth if necessary.
2. You asked a group of 26 students at school (16 were male) what type of party they used to enjoy going to when they were a child. Ten students said they liked to go to bowling parties, 4 of them were female. Complete a hypothetical two-way frequency table to display this information.Male / Female / Total
Assuming that the rest of the student body would vote following the same trend, find the following probabilities and round your answers to the nearest hundredth if necessary.
a. What is the probability:
i) that a randomly selected student would be female?
ii) that a randomly selected student would like a bowling party given that the student is male?
iii) that student was female given the selected student likes bowling parties?
c. What percentage of those students who liked pizza parties are female?
3. When a class is randomly selected in a high school, the probability that it is a core class is 0.82, the probability that the class is on the second floor of the school is 0.54, and the probability it is a core class and is on the second floor is 0.45. Let C be the event that it is a core class and S be the event that the class is on the second floor.
a) Complete a hypothetical 1000 two-way table below.Core Class / Not a Core Class / Total
Not the Second Floor
b) Use the mathematical notation for probability: intersection, union, complement, and conditional probability in your work to answer the following questions. What is the probability that a randomly selected class:
i) is not a core class?
ii) is a core class and is not on the second floor?
iii) is a core class or on the second floor?
iv) is a core class given it is on the second floor?
c) Are the events “a class is a core class” and “a class is on the second floor” independent? Clearly explain in complete sentences using mathematical reasoning and specific probabilities.
4. For the following questions, use the spinner below. All events on the spinner are equally likely.
a) If the spinner is spun four times, what is the probability that it will land on white all four times?
b) If the spinner is spun three times, what is the probability that it will never land on blue?
5. On any given winter day at FHS the probability that a student has the flu is 24%. The probability that a student has both a cough and the flu is about 14%. What is the probability that a student has a cough given they have the flu?
