A couple is planning their wedding reception. The bride’s parents have given them a choice of four reception facilities, three caterers, five DJ’s, and two limo services. If the couple randomly selects one reception facility, one caterer, one DJ, and one limo service, how many different outcomes are possible?
Lucia graduate this year with an accouting degree from Eastern Connecticut State University. She has received job offers from an accounting firm, an insurance company, and an airline. She cannot decide which of the three job offers she should accept. Suppose she decides to randomly select on of these job offers. Find the probability that the job offer selected is From the insurance company Not from the accounting firm.
There are 200 students in a particular graduate program at a state university. Of them, 110 are female and 125 are out-of-state students. Of the 100 females, 70 are out-of-state students.
a) Are the events “female” and “out-of-state student” independent? Mutually exclusive?
b) c) If one of these 200 students is selected at random, what is the probability that the student selected is male? Out-of-state given she is female? Out-of-state or female?
2 are selected and both are out of state?
