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.
A sample of 150 students at a State University was taken after the final business statistics exam to ask them whether they went partying the weekend before the final or spent the weekend studying, and whether they did well or poorly on the final. The following table contains the result.
Did Well on Exam    Did Poorly on Exam
Studying for Exam    60    15
Went Partying    22    53

If the sample is a good representation of the population, what percentage of those who did poorly on the final exam should we expect to have spent the weekend studying?  Place your answer in the blank, rounded to 2 decimal places. Do not use a percentage sign (%). For example, 44.44 would be a legitmate answer.

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
100    325    75

Given that 3 vehicles were involved, what proportion of accidents involved alcohol? Place your answer, rounded to 2 decimal places, in the blank. For example. 0.23 is a legitimate entry.

An urn contains 12 balls identical in every respect except their color. There are 3 red balls, 7 green balls, and 2 blue balls. You draw two balls from the urn, but replace the first ball before drawing the second. Find the probability that the first ball drawn is red and the second ball drawn is green. Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 0.4567 would be a legitimate entry.
