The standard deviation of the number of video game A’s outcomes is 05479, while the standard deviation of the number of video game B’s outcomes is 0.2498. Which game would you be likely to choose if you wanted players to have the most choice and why?

Game A, as the standard deviation is higher and, thus offers fewer choices in outcomes

Game B, as the standard deviation is lower and, thus offers more choices in outcomes

Game A, as the standard deviation is lower and, thus offers fewer choices in outcomes

Game B, as the standard deviation is higher and, thus offers more choices in outcomes

__Question 8 2 pts__

Thirty-five percent of teens buy soda (pop) at least once each week. Eleven kids are randomly selected. The random variable represents the number of these kids who purchase soda (pop) at least once each week. For this to be a binomial experiment, what assumption needs to be made?

All teens have the same probability of being selected.

All the kids eligible to be selected are teens.

All eleven kids selected live in the same region.

Say a business wants to know if each salesperson is equally likely to make a sale. The company chooses 5 salespeople and gathers information on their sales experiences. What assumption must be made for this study’s probability results to be used in future binomial experiments?

That the probability of each salesperson being one of the selected 5 is the same

That 5% is the correct probability to use in future studies

That the selected 5 have similar characteristics and sales areas as the other salespeople

__Question 12 2 pts__

Eight baseballs are randomly selected from the production line to see if their stitching is straight. Over time, the company has found that 93.8% of all their baseballs have straight stitching. If exactly six of the eight have straight stitching, should the company stop the production line?

Yes, the probability of six or less having straight stitching is unusual

No, the probability of six or less having straight stitching is not unusual

No, the probability of exactly six have straight stitching is not unusual

Yes, the probability of exactly six having straight stitching is unusual

__Question 14 2 pts__

A supplier must create metal rods that are 18.1 inches width to fit into the next step of production. Can a binomial experiment be used to determine the probability that the rods are the correct width or an incorrect width?

No, as the probability of being about right could be different for each rod selected

Yes, all production line quality questions are answered with binomial experiments

No, as there are three possible outcomes, rather than two possible outcomes

Yes, as each rod measured would have two outcomes: correct or incorrect

__Question 15 2 pts__

In a box of 12 pens, there is one that does not work. Employees take pens as needed. The pens are returned once employees are done with them. You are the 5th employee to take a pen. Is this a binomial experiment?

No, binomial does not include systematic selection such as “fifth”

No, the probability of getting the broken pen changes as there is no replacement

Yes, you are find the probability of exactly 5 not being broken

Yes, with replacement, the probability of getting the one that does not work is the same
