A group of 10 children, 6 girls and 4 boys, is on a school visit to the theatre. The teacher is asked

to select 3 of these children to meet members of the cast after the show and she decides to do the

selection at random.

Ann is one of the children on the visit. Calculate the probability that she is one of the

selected children.

When Alan types a report, the number of errors on each page has a Poisson distribution with mean

095, independently of all other pages.

A factory has three machines making paper clips. Machine A produces 40% of the total output,

Machine B produces 35% of the total output and Machine C produces 25% of the total output. It is

known that 2% of the paper clips produced by Machine A are defective, 25% produced by

Machine B are defective and 05% produced by Machine C are defective.

A paper clip is selected at random from the total output.

(a)

[3]

(b)

Given that it is defective, find the probability that it was produced by Machine A.

On a farm, chickens are bred from eggs under strictly controlled conditions.

(a)

(b)

The probability that an egg will produce a female chick is 03. When 20 eggs are kept under

the controlled conditions, find the probability that the number of female chicks produced

will be

(i)

exactly 8,

(ii)

more than 5.

[5]

The probability that an egg will fail to hatch is 001. When 1000 eggs are kept under the

controlled conditions, use a Poisson approximation to find the probability that the number of

eggs failing to hatch will be less than 9.
