1. Solution: D
Let

G = event that a viewer watched gymnastics

B = event that a viewer watched baseball
S = event that a viewer watched soccer
Then we want to find
c
Pr ⎡( G ∪ B ∪ S ) ⎤ = 1 − Pr ( G ∪ B ∪ S )

= 1 − ⎡⎣ Pr ( G ) + Pr ( B ) + Pr ( S ) − Pr ( G ∩ B ) − Pr ( G ∩ S ) − Pr ( B ∩ S ) + Pr ( G ∩ B ∩ S ) ⎤⎦
= 1 − ( 0.28 + 0.29 + 0.19 − 0.14 − 0.10 − 0.12 + 0.08 ) = 1 − 0.48 = 0.52

Solution: A
Let R = event of referral to a specialist
L = event of lab work
We want to find
P[R∩L] = P[R] + P[L] – P[R∪L] = P[R] + P[L] – 1 + P[~(R∪L)]
= P[R] + P[L] – 1 + P[~R∩~L] = 0.30 + 0.40 – 1 + 0.35 = 0.05 .

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------3.

Solution: D
First note
P [ A ∪ B ] = P [ A] + P [ B ] − P [ A ∩ B ]

P [ A ∪ B '] = P [ A] + P [ B '] − P [ A ∩ B ']
Then add these two equations to get
P [ A ∪ B ] + P [ A ∪ B '] = 2 P [ A] + ( P [ B ] + P [ B '] ) − ( P [ A ∩ B ] + P [ A ∩ B '] )
0.7 + 0.9 = 2 P [ A] + 1 − P ⎡⎣( A ∩ B ) ∪ ( A ∩ B ') ⎤⎦

1.6 = 2 P [ A] + 1 − P [ A]
P [ A] = 0.6

Solution: A
For i = 1, 2, let
Ri = event that a red ball is drawn form urn i
Bi = event that a blue ball is drawn from urn i .

Then if x is the number of blue balls in urn 2,

0.44 = Pr[( R1 ∩ R2 ) ∪ ( B1 ∩ B2 )] = Pr[ R1 ∩ R2 ] + Pr [ B1 ∩ B2 ]

Let N(C) denote the number of policyholders in classification C . Then
N(Young ∩ Female ∩ Single) = N(Young ∩ Female) – N(Young ∩ Female ∩ Married)
= N(Young) – N(Young ∩ Male) – [N(Young ∩ Married) – N(Young ∩ Married ∩

096 It follows that P ( A ∪ B ) = 0.64 = 0.33 . Solution: B Let C = Event that a policyholder buys collision coverage D = Event that a policyholder buys disability coverage Then we are given that P[C] = 2P[D] and P[C ∩ D] = 0.15 * 0. by the Additive Law. But P ( Ac ∩ Bc) = 1 – P (A ∪ B) And.205 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------10.70 − 0. we may compute the desired probability as follows: c Pr ( M c ∩ S c ) = Pr ⎡( M ∪ S ) ⎤ = 1 − Pr ( M ∪ S ) = 1 − ⎡⎣ Pr ( M ) + Pr ( S ) − Pr ( M ∩ S ) ⎤⎦ ⎣ ⎦ = 1 − Pr ( M ) − Pr ( S ) + Pr ( S M ) Pr ( M ) = 1 − 0. Solution: B Let M = event that customer insures more than one car S = event that customer insures a sports car Then applying DeMorgan’s Law.744 = 0. Solution: C Consider the following events about a randomly selected auto insurance customer: A = customer insures more than one car B = customer insures a sports car We want to find the probability of the complement of A intersecting the complement of B (exactly one car.075 ) (1 – 0.20 + ( 0.

We could integrate f over the shaded region in order to determine the desired probability.
However, since X and Y are uniform random variables, it is simpler to determine the
portion of the 10 x 10 square that is shaded in the graph above. That is,
Pr ( Total Benefit Paid Does not Exceed 5)
= Pr ( 0 < X < 6, 0 < Y < 2 ) + Pr ( 0 < X < 1, 2 < Y < 7 ) + Pr (1 < X < 6, 2 < Y < 8 − X )

Solution: E
Observe that the bus driver collect 21x50 = 1050 for the 21 tickets he sells. However, he
may be required to refund 100 to one passenger if all 21 ticket holders show up. Since
passengers show up or do not show up independently of one another, the probability that
21
21
all 21 passengers will show up is (1 − 0.02 ) = ( 0.98 ) = 0.65 . Therefore, the tour
operator’s expected revenue is 1050 − (100 )( 0.65 ) = 985 .

It is clear geometrically (a flat joint density over the triangular region 0 < y < x < 1) that when Y = y we have X ~ U(y.5 and the variance of an exponential distribution is always equal to the square of its mean. Because the mean of Y is 0.25. the conditional density of Y is the same as the unconditional density of Y+3. the condition on X can be ignored and it suffices to just consider f ( y ) = 2e −2 y .
