Please I need help with those probability problems (it's important) Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Please help me, I will really appreciate it! It's really important.

    1) You are dealing a standard hand of 5 card stud, 1 card face down, 4 face up. Ignoring the cards dealt to all other players what is the probability of you drawing a 9, a heart, and a 9 of hearts assuming you have the 6, 7, 8 and 10 of hearts already. (List all three probabilities)

    2) At the local casino you are finally trying to make it big. The roulette table is rolling and you have enough to place two bets, $20. The wheel has 36 numbers on it, you will win 400 for your 10$ bet if you pick the right number. Is it a fair game if you bet on only one number? What about if you bet $20 on one game but two superate numbers.

    3) Also, I have this problem, where the population is:
    13, 15, 19, 19, 20, 22, 22, 24, 24, 25, 26, 27, 31, 34, 35, 26, 36
    I already found the 5 number summary, IQR, mean, standard deviation and variance. But I don't know how to resolve those:
    -What numerical values represent the range of numbers included by the empirical rule?
    -If someone scored a 27, what percentile would his score fall into?
    -What percentage of people would be represented by a score between 18 and 26
    -Using Z-score of -1.79, what score was achieved on the ACT.

    What have you tried?
