Seventy two percent of all observations fall within 1 standard deviation of the mean if the data is normally distributed.

If two events are not mutually exclusive, then P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B).

Probability trees are used only to compute conditional probabilities.

The minimin criterion is optimistic.

Using the minimax regret criterion, we first construct a table of regrets.Subsequently, for each possible decision, we look across the states of nature and make a note of the maximum regret possible for that decision.We then pick the decision with the largest maximum regret.

Both maximin and minimin criteria are optimistic.

The equal likelihood criterion assigns a probability of 0.5 to each state of nature, regardless of how many states of nature there are.

Assume that it takes a college student an average of 5 minutes to find a parking spot in the main parking lot. Assume also that this time is normally distributed with a standard deviation of 2 minutes. Find the probability that a randomly selected college student will take between 2 and 6 minutes to find a parking spot in the main parking lot.

The chi-square test is a statistical test to see if an observed data fit a _________.

The metropolitan airport commission is considering the establishment of limitations on noise pollution around a local airport. At the present time, the noise level per jet takeoff in one neighborhood near the airport is approximately normally distributed with a mean of 100 decibels and a standard deviation of 3 decibels. What is the probability that a randomly selected jet will generate a noise level of more than 105 decibels?

A business owner is trying to decide whether to buy, rent, or lease office space and has constructed the following payoff table based on whether business is brisk or slow.

If the probability of brisk business is .40 and for slow business is .60, the expected value of perfect information is:

A group of friends are planning a recreational outing and have constructed the following payoff table to help them decide which activity to engage in. Assume that the payoffs represent their level of enjoyment for each activity under the various weather conditions.

Weather

Cold Warm Rainy

S1 S2 S3

Bike: A1 10 8 6

Hike: A2 14 15 2

Fish: A3 7 8 9

If the group chooses to minimize their maximum regret, what activity will they choose?

Assume that the probability distribution of the lifetimes of the participants is approximately a normal distribution with a mean of 71 years and a standard deviation of 3.5 years. What proportion of the plan participants are expected to see their 75th birthday?Note: Write your answers with two places after the decimal, rounding off as appropriate.

Historical data indicates that there is 30% chance that the lot is poor quality (s1), 50 % chance that the lot is fair quality (s2) and 20% chance that the lot is good quality (s3).

What is the numerical value of the minimax regret?
