Question 9.

Be Precise An arts and crafts store has a crate that contains glass, wood, and brass beads. Friends take turns choosing a bead without looking, recording the bead type, and returning the bead to the crate. The table shows the results of 300 selections.

a. Write a probability model for choosing a bead.

Answer:

The model for choosing a bead = p(0.2), p(0.32), and p(0.48).

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

An arts and crafts store has a crate that contains glass, wood, and brass beads.

Friends take turns choosing a bead without looking, recording the bead type, and returning the bead to the crate.

glass = p(60/300) = p(0.2).

wood = p(96/300) = p(0.32).

brass = p(144/300) = p(0.48).

so the model for choosing a bead = p(0.2), p(0.32), and p(0.48).

b. Based on the frequencies in the table, estimate the number of each type of bead that will be chosen if the friends select a total of 450 beads from the crate.

Answer:

The friends select a total of 450 beads from the crate = p(0.2), p(0.32), and p(0.48).

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

An arts and crafts store has a crate that contains glass, wood, and brass beads.

Friends take turns choosing a bead without looking, recording the bead type, and returning the bead to the crate.

60 + 40 = 100.

96 + 54 = 150.

144 + 56 = 200.

100 + 150 + 200 = 450.

glass = p(100/450) = p(0.2).

wood = p(150/450) = p(0.32).

brass = p(200/450) = p(0.48).

so the friends select a total of 450 beads from the crate = p(0.2), p(0.32), and p(0.48).

Question 10.

A bag contains 14 green, 12 orange, and 19 purple tennis balls.

a. Create a probability model for choosing a tennis ball from the bag.

Answer:

The probability model for choosing a tennis ball from the bag = p(0.3), p(0.2), and p(0.4).

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

A bag contains 14 green, 12 orange, and 19 purple tennis balls.

14 + 12 + 19 = 45.

p(green) = p(14/45).

p(orange) = p(12/45).

p(purple) = p(19/45).

so the probability model for choosing a tennis ball from the bag = p(0.3), p(0.2), and p(0.4).

b. Suppose a tennis ball is randomly selected and then replaced 75 times. How many orange tennis balls do you expect? Explain.

Answer:

The number of orange tennis balls does you expert = p(20/45).

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Suppose a tennis ball is randomly selected and then replaced 75 times.

14 + 11 = 25.

12 + 8 = 20.

19 + 11 = 30.

25 + 20 + 30 = 75.

so the number of orange tennis balls does you expert = p(20/45).

Question 11.

Given that Pred pepper) = \(\frac{3}{5}\), write another probability statement to complete the probability model of a random pepper selection from the box below.

Answer:

the people who selected Adventure is 90.

the people who selected comedy is 102.

the people who selected Mystery is 150.

the people who selected Romance is 132.

90 + 102 + 150 + 132 = 474.

600 – 474 = 126.

so the number of people surveyed responded with a genre that is not listed in the table = 126.

b. Find the probabilities and complete a probability model to describe each response, including “other genre”.

Answer:

The probabilities are p(0.18), p(0.21), p(0.31), and p(0.27).

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

A survey asked 600 people for their favorite genre of book.

the people who selected Adventure is 90.

the people who selected comedy is 102.

the people who selected Mystery is 150.

the people who selected Romance is 132.

p(90/474) = p(0.18).

p(102/474) = p(0.21).

p(150/474) = p(0.31).

p(132/474) = p(0.27).

so the probabilities are p(0.18), p(0.21), p(0.31), and p(0.27).

Brianna has a bag of marbles that are all the same size.

Of all the marbles in the bag, there are 6 red, 7 white, 3 black, and 4 green marbles.

it is certain that Brianna will draw either a red, white, black, or green marble.

it is unlikely that Brianna will draw a black marble.

it is neither likely nor unlikely that Brianna will draw a green marble.

so options C, D, and E are correct.

Question 3.

Ryan asks 80 people to choose a marble, note the color, and replace the marble in Brianna’s bag. The results of the random marble selections in this experiment are: 34 red, 18 white, 9 black, and 19 green marbles. How does the theoretical probability compare with the experimental probability of drawing a white marble? Lessons 7-2 and 7-3

Answer:

The theoretical probability is equal to the experimental probability.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Ryan asks 80 people to choose marble, note the color, and replace the marble in Brianna’s bag.

The results of the random marble selections in this experiment are 34 red, 18 white, 9 black, and 19 green marbles.

34 + 18 + 9 + 19 = 80.

p(white) = p(18/80).

p(white) = p(0.225).

so the theoretical probability is equal to the experimental probability.

Question 4.

Write a probability model for this experiment, and use the probability model to predict how many times Brianna would pick a green marble if she chose a marble 50 times. Give the probabilities as simplified fractions. Lesson 7-4

Drawing a red marble: __________

Drawing a black marble: __________

Drawing a white marble: __________

Drawing a green marble: __________

Brianna would draw __________ green marbles in 50 tries.

The probability of an event describes the likelihood an event will occur. The likelihood of an event ranges from impossible to certain, but more common descriptions are likely or unlikely. An event is a single outcome or group of outcomes. An outcome is a possible result of an action. Probability can be represented as a fraction, as a decimal, or as a percent. Something is fair if there is an equal chance for each outcome to occur.

Use Luke’s 10-sided solid from the example. Describe an event that is certain and one that is impossible using this solid.

Answer:

The event describes the likelihood an event will occur.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Luke’s 10-sided solid from the example.

the event describes the likelihood an event will occur.

Question 2.

A spinner with 8 equal-sized sections is used for a game. Based on the descriptions below, is the spinner fair? Explain. The probability the pointer will land on yellow is 1 out of 4.

The probability the pointer will land on blue is 2 out of 8.

The probabilities that the pointer will land on green or red are both 25%.

Answer:

Yes, the spinner is fair.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

A spinner with 8 equal-sized sections is used for a game.

2/8 = 1/4.

so the spinner is fair.

**Lesson 7.2 Understand Theoretical Probability**

**Quick Review**

The theoretical probability of an event can be found if the possible outcomes are known and are all equally likely. Theoretical probability can be used to make predictions.

**Practice**

Question 1.

Using the example, fifteen people take out a slip of paper from the bucket without looking and record the results before replacing the slip back into the bucket. How many times is a slip labeled “5” expected to be drawn?

Answer:

The number of times is a slip labeled 5 is 3.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

fifteen people take out a slip of paper from the bucket without looking.

15/3 = 5.

so the number of times is a slip labeled 5 is 3.

**Lesson 7.3 Understand Experimental Probability**

**Quick Review**

The experimental probability or relative frequency is based on actual results from an experiment and may differ from the theoretical probability of an event occurring. This discrepancy decreases as the number of trials of an experiment increases. You can use experimental probability and proportional reasoning to make predictions.

**Practice**

Question 1.

Jaylon and Paula spin the pointer 30 times and get the results shown in the table.

What is the theoretical probability of the pointer landing on the number 2?

Based on the results in the table, how does the experimental probability of the pointer landing on 2 compare to the theoretical probability?

Answer:

The theoretical probability of the pointer landing on the number 2 is 13.

the experimental probability of the pointer landing on the number 2 is 13.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Jaylon and Paula spin the pointer 30 times and get the results shown in the table.

Jaylon gets in 1st spin 6.

2nd spin 8, 3rd spin 9, and 4th spin 7.

Paula gets in 1st spin 8, 2nd spin is 5, 3rd spin is 7, and 4th spin is 10.

Question 2.

Based on the results in the table, about how many times should Jaylon and Paula expect the pointer to land on 4 out of a total of 130 spins? Explain your answer.

Answer:

The pointer to land on 4 out of a total of 130 is 0.30.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Jaylon and Paula expect the pointer to land on 4 out of a total of 130 spins.

4/130 = 0.30.

so the pointer to land on 4 out of a total of 130 is 0.30.

**Lesson 7.4 Use Probability Models**

**Quick Review**

A probability model consists of a sample space, or all possible outcomes of an action, and a list of events within the sample space with the probability of each. The sum of the probabilities in the model is 1. A probability model can be used to make conclusions about probabilities of events or to make estimates or predictions.

**Practice**

Question 1.

Abe has a different spinner. He also wants to develop a probability model.

How will his probability model be the same as, and how will it differ from, Jenna’s model?

Question 2.

Walter has a different spinner.

What is the probability that the pointer will land on a color that is not red?

Answer:

Question 3.

What is the sample space of Walter’s spinner?

Answer:

Question 4.

Walter will spin the pointer 50 times. About how many times will the pointer land on each color?

Answer:

**Lesson 7.5 Determine Outcomes of Compound Events**

**Quick Review**

A compound event is a combination of two or more events. An organized list, table, or tree diagram can be used to represent the sample space of a compound event.

**Practice**

Question 1.

A basket contains a red, a yellow, and a green apple. A second basket contains an orange, a lemon, and a peach. Use an organized list to show all the outcomes in the sample space.

Answer:

The organized list to show all the outcomes in the sample space is 1.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

A basket contains a red, a yellow, and a green apple.

A second basket contains an orange, a lemon, and a peach.

p(3/3) = 1.

so the organized list to show all the outcomes in the sample space is 1.

Question 2.

Simon is playing a game with letter tiles. He has 5 tiles remaining and will spell a new word by placing two tiles-first a consonant and then a vowel-in front of a Y already on the board. Complete the table below to describe all combinations of tiles that Simon can use to spell a new word.

**Lesson 7.6 Find Probabilities of Compound Events**

**Quick Review**

The probability of a compound event can be represented by a ratio of the favorable outcomes to all possible outcomes. The probability can be calculated using an organized list, a table, or a tree diagram.

**Practice**

Question 1.

One set of cards has a beach, a road, a desert, a mountain, and an island. A second set of cards has a car, a truck, and a van. Complete the table below to find the probability of randomly drawing a mountain card and a truck card.

Answer:

Beach = 1, 2, and 3.

Road = 4, 5, and 6.

Desert = 7, 8, and 9.

Mountain = 10, 11, and 12.

Island = 13, 14, and 15.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

One set of cards has a beach, a road, a desert, a mountain, and an island.

Desert = 7, 8, and 9.

Mountain = 10, 11, and 12.

Island = 13, 14, and 15.

**Lesson 7.7 Simulate Compound Events**

**Quick Review**

An actual event is sometimes difficult to perform or record. A simulation can be used to model the outcomes of a real-world event. Based on simulated results, you can approximate the probability and predict the future outcomes of an event.

**Practice**

Question 1.

Felix’s favorite cereal includes 1 of 3 different prizes inside each box. The chance of getting each prize is equally likely. Felix conducts a simulation to see what his chances are of collecting all 3 prizes if he buys 5 boxes over time. Each section of the spinner represents the possible prizes in a single box.

Based on the simulation, what is the probability that Felix will collect all three prizes?

Answer:

The spinner represents the possible prizes in a single box = GBGBG, BGGYG, BGBYB, GYBYY, and YYGYG.
