Of the first 12 potential jurors, only 2 are Spanish-speaking Americans, and 10 are not. The defendant's lawyer challenges the jury selection, claiming bias against her client. The government lawyer disagrees, saying that the probability of this particular jury composition is common. What do you think?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 8:42 pm ad1c9bdddf
P(person speaks Spanish)= 0.30
Probability of k speaking Spanish out of n=
P(2 speak Spanish of 12) = nCk * (p^k) * (1-p)^(n-k)
P(2 speak Spanish of 12) = 12C2*(0.3^2) *(0.7^10) = ...
The solution examines probability and ratios.
