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 in Exam    Did Poorly in Exam
Studying for Exam    60    15
Went Partying    22    53

Of those in the sample who went partying the weekend before the final exam, what percentage of them did well in the exam?  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.

A school determines that the number of children X in the families who attend the school follows the distribution below:
 Number of children X     1    2     3     4     5
 Probability P(X)     0.20     0.35     0.25     0.15     0.05

What is the mean number of children per family?  Round your answer to one decimal place as necessary. For example, 4.5 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
     100    325    75    

Given that alcohol was not involved, what proportion of the accidents were multiple vehicle?  Place your answer, rounded to 2 decimal places, in the blank.  For example, 0.23 is a legitimate entry.

An ice cream vendor sells three flavors: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Forty five percent of the sales are chocolate, while 30% are strawberry, with the rest vanilla flavored. Sales are by the cone or the cup. The percentages of cones sales for chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, are 75%, 60%, and 40%, respectively. For a randomly selected sale, define the following events:
 
  = chocolate chosen
  = strawberry chosen
  = vanilla chosen
   = ice cream on a cone
 ice cream in a cup

Find the probability that the ice cream was sold on a cone and was chocolate flavor.  Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank.  For exampe, 0.3456 would be a legitimate entry.
