Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands

separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the

decimal point marker.

Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values.

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.

Find the expected value of the following probability distribution.

X 1 2 3 4 5

P(X) 0.05 0.20 0.35 0.25 0.15

Round your answer to two decimal place as necessary. For example, 4.56 would be a legitimate entry.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is a very visible group whose main focus is to educate the public about the harm caused by drunk drivers. A study was recently done that emphasized the problem we all face with drinking and driving. Five hundred accidents that occurred on a Saturday night were analyzed. Two items noted were the number of vehicles involved and whether alcohol played a role in the accident. The numbers are shown below:

Number of Vehicles Involved

Did alcohol play a role? 1 2 3

Yes 60 110 30 200

No 40 215 45 300

A probability experiment has two steps. There are two possible results for the first step, call them “A” and “B”. If the result for the first step was “A”, then there would be 4 possible results for the second step.
