Once the elevator reaches the ground floor, it will have a 100% **probability** of going up, and when it reaches the 10th floor, it will have a 100% **probability** of going down. The elevator goes up and down at discrete intervals. Reflection at the barriers is represents the points when the elevator is at the ground and the 10th floors.

...Be sure to show your work so that partial credit may be awarded. To receive full credit, work must be shown if applicable. Section 3 Basic Concepts of **Probability** and Counting
1. Lock combinations are made by using 4 digits. How many different lock combinations can be made if repetition of digits is allowed?
Each place in the 4 digit number can be occupied by any of the 10 digits. Hence by the multiplication theorem of **probability**, we get
No of different combinations = 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 = 10000 combinations
2. In 2001 the stock market took some big swings up and down. One thousand investors were asked how often they tracked their investments. The table below shows their responses. What is the **probability** that an investor tracks...

...The Use of **Probability** in Inferential Statistics There are many distribution models used in inferential statistics. The distribution modelsreflect a statistician’s assumption on how variable values are possibly distributed in a population. Based on sample data and assumptions on the population distribution, inferences are made on how the variable values may be actually distributed in a population. The most conventional or usual assumptions on population distribution are the standard normal, t-distribution, and the chi-square distribution.
Using assumptions on how variable values are distributed in a population makes it possible for man to anticipate the characteristics of specific populations based on information provided by sample data...

...Your full ID: Assignment 02-**Probability** Module + Hand Out “**PROBABILITY**” i. Given: P(A) = 6/7, P(B) = 7/8, P(D) = 9/10, and Machine efficiency = 27/44
P(C) = unknown
All four components need to be in working order for the machine to complete the process successfully. The machine will fail to complete the process from start to finish if at least one of the tasks fails. The efficiency of the machine is the **probability** that the machine completes the process from start to finish. Further, all tasks (from A to D) are independent tasks Therefore,
Therefore, the **probability** that component C is in working condition is
The **probability** that component C is in working condition is 10/11 (or 90.91%).
ii. If the firm operating the machine wishes...

...**PROBABILITY** Explain your strategy for solving the problem I will not call my opponents bet by tossing the rest of my money because in playing cards winning lies on **probability**. I would continue with my two down cards 6 of (diamonds) & 7 of (diamonds) bearing in mind that they will come up.
Explain why your strategy will work.
**Probability** does not always occur twice, so there is no need for quitting. My strategy therefore largely lies on **probability**. **Probability** is always related to gambling because if at all one of the down cards does not show up there is a high possibility that they will come up in the next play (Bassarear 2011).
Execute your strategy showing your mathematical work.
So am having the values diamonds=6, 7...

...**Probability** **Probability** defines an event’s chance of occurrence and may be theoretical or experimental. While theoretical **probability** relies on naturally expected observations, experimental **probability** is derived from experimental observations. This report seeks to investigate **probabilities** in genetics and inheritance. The paper concludes that theoretical **probability** sufficiently predicts inheritance of genes.
Introduction
Olofsson explains that the knowledge of **probability** is fundamental in understanding inheritance of genes (p. 56). This is because characteristics of parents that are passed over to their offspring follow specific patterns. Both parents have pairs of chromosomes out of which one is transferred to an offspring at random...

In doing so, not only will these illegal activities be put to an end, moreover, the government shall be benefiting from the decline in crimes prone to home run **poker** games such as underage and problem gamblers which shall be taken care of by the provision of online **poker** as it aims to provide a more secure setting for gambling and consequential feuds, vendettas and other illegitimate participatory...

...Ranking of Jackson County judges Ranking of Jackson County judges Every year a number of cases are handled by judges in Jackson County. Some of these cases are appealed. However some of them are upheld. In connection to this the main aim of these study was to investigate how the judges perform based on the number of cases appealed and the number of cases reversed. This ranking was necessary to find out whether the judges are doing a great or not. Three courts were investigated: Municipal Court, Domestic Relations, and Common Pleas Courts.
To get the **probability** of appeal: P (Appeal), the following formula was used;
P (Appeal) =
To obtain P (reversed), the following formula was used.
P (Reversed) =
On the other hand P (R/A) was gotten...
