Multiple Choice

Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question.

____ 1. J ohn runs a computer software store. He counted 124 people who walked by his store in a day, 54 of whom

came into the store. Of the 54, only 22 bought something in the store. Estimate the probability that a person

who walks into the store will buy something. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

B) 0.18

C) 0.41

D) 0.61

E) none of these choices

____ 2. J ohn runs a computer software store. He counted 120 people who walked by his store in a day, 57 of whom

came into the store. Of the 57, only 20 bought something in the store. Estimate the probability that a person

positive test (+) indicates the patient has the condition. A negative test () indicates the patient does not have

the condition. Remember, a positive test does not prove the patient has the condition. Additional medical

work may be required. Consider a random sample of 128 patients, some of whom have a medical condition

and some of whom do not. Results of a new diagnostic test for the condition are shown.

selling Chinese fortune cookies at a price of $3 per cookie. Each cookie contains a piece of paper with a
