a) at most half will be females

b) more than 7 will be females

c) fewer than 3 will be males

I used the Table of Binomial Probabilities:

X P(x) X P(x)

0 .0000 7 .1585

1 .0000 8 .2311

2 .0002 9 .2397

3 .0015 10 .1678

4 .0078 11 .0712

5 .0291 12 .0138

6 .0792

(A) P(at most 1/2 female)=

P(0 or 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6)

P(x=0)+ P(x=1)+ P(x=2)+ P(x=3)+ P(x=4)+ P(x=5)+ P(x=6)

= .0000+.0000+.0002+.0015+.0078+.0291+.0792= .1178 is this right?

(B) P(more than 7 will be female)=

P(8 or 9 or 10 or 11 or 12)

P(x=8)+ P(x=9)+ P(x=10)+ P(x=11)+ P(x=12)= .2311+.2397+.1678+.0712+.0138= .7236 is this right?

(C) I don't know how to do this one :(

**Sunny**, Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at 6:20pmOK last time, do I add up P(x) values from the binomial table from 3 through 12 to establish p and then subtract p value from 1 (as I would to get q value) to get answer C)? or would I totally switch the p value from women to men. I would like to keep the integrity of the question as much as possible and keep the p as women, but if I must change then I will.
