Question 1. An audit conducted by the St. Aleanis Hospital has determined that 15% of all patient bills contain an error of one form or another. After spending considerable effort to improve the hospital's billing process, the administrators are convinced that things have improved. They believe that the new error rate is somewhe

A random variable Y is uniformly distributed over a range of 0 to 2*pi. Another random variable X is related to Y by X=cos(Y). Find the probability density function of X.

Problem 2. A recent study of the hourly wages of maintenance crew members for major airlines showed that the mean hourly salary was $20.50, with a standard deviation of $3.50. If we select a crew member at random, what is the probability the crew member earns: a. Between $20.50 and $24.00 per hour? b. More than $24.00 per hour?

Please provide the answer in the form 0.xxxx or .xxxx. 2. A researcher wants to simulate sunny and rainy days in her town for a 3

I have been working with M&M's throughout this classes course. From the data I gathered I developed histograms and calculated descriptive statistics. Based on this data I then can make judgments on what I can expect to see when I buy packages of M&M's at the store. To do this I calculate what is called confidence limits

17. A stock price is currently $100. Over each of the next two three-month periods it is expected to increase by 10% or fall by 10%.
