Finding probabilities of survival from sample drawn from the Titanic passenger roster.

On the Titanic, the passenger roster showed that there were 1692 men, 422 women, 64 boys, and 45 girls. Only 332 men and 29 boys survived. 104 women and 18 girls died. Answer in reduced fraction form.
A. What is the probability of selecting a person from the roster who was a man who survived?
B. What is the probability of selecting a woman from the roster given the person is not a survivor.?
C. What is the probability of selecting a person from the roster who did survive or is a girl?
Please include formulas

Solution Preview

Total no. of people on Titanic= 1692+422+64+45= 2223.

A. Prob of selecting a man who survived = 332/2223

B. No. of non-survivors= ...

Solution Summary

The following solution demonstrate how to calculate several different types of probabilities and provides relevant formulas.

In this the anniversary of the sinking of theTitanic, it is interesting to look at the distribution of those who survived, and those who died. The table below describes the number of men, women and children who were passengers on theTitanic. The table lists both the number who survived as well as the number in each category wh

The following table summarizes results fromthe sinking of theTitanic:
Men Women boys Girls
Survived 332 318 29 27
Died 1360 104 35 18
If one of theTitanicpassengers is randomly selected, find the probability of getting a woman or someone who didn't
