A box of 9 gloves contains two left handed gloves and seven right handed gloves. a: If two gloves are randomly selected from the box, without replacement, what is the probability that both gloves will be right handed? b: If two gloves are randomly selected from the box without replacement, what is the probability that ther

Inventory Control - Monte Carlo Simulation

Good Day, Could you please assist with the attached question. Regards Q3 - Inventory Control: Monte Carlo Simulation A bookstore wishes to carry a certain book in stock. Demand is probabilistic and replenishment of stock takes two days (i.e. if th

Average Profit and Basic Probability

1. A ski resort profits $1,200,000 during a good winter with lots of snow. The resort has a loss of $450,000 otherwise. The resort's historical climate data suggests that the probability of a good winter with lots of snow during any given year is 60%. What is the expected profit for the ski resort? Show significant work to justi

Joint PDFs

Respond to OTA: Basically the first equation is the joint pdf of a sample maximum and minimum - if I am not wrong - it is just the formula. The problem is finding the joint pdf from the sample size drawn from the pdf (2nd equation given between the bolded text ). So basically A(1) and A(n)corresponds only to the 2nd equation
