In the ﬁgure, “×” represents the “No aging” group and “◦” represents the “Aging” group. (b) Yes; tensile strength is greatly reduced due to the aging process. (c) MeanAging = 209.90, and MeanNo aging = 222.10. (d) MedianAging = 210.00, and MedianNo aging = 221.50. The means and medians for each group are similar to each other. ¯ A = 7.950 and X ˜ A = 8.250; 1.4 (a) X ¯ ˜ B = 10.150. XB = 10.260 and X (b) A dot plot is shown below. 6.5

In the ﬁgure, “×” represents the control group and “◦” represents the treatment group. ¯ Control = 5.60, X ˜ Control = 5.00, and X ¯ tr(10);Control = 5.13; (b) X ¯ Treatment = 7.60, X ˜ Treatment = 4.50, and X ¯ tr(10);Treatment = 5.63. X (c) The diﬀerence of the means is 2.0 and the diﬀerences of the medians and the trimmed means are 0.5, which are much smaller. The possible cause of this might be due to the extreme values (outliers) in the samples, especially the value of 37. 1.6 (a) A dot plot is shown below. 1.95

group.

(c) Based on the plot, it seems that high temperature yields more high values of tensile strength, along with a few low values of tensile strength. Overall, the temperature does have an inﬂuence on the tensile strength. (d) It also seems that the variation of the tensile strength gets larger when the cure temperature is increased. 1 1.7 s2 = 15−1 [(3.4 − 3.787)2 + (2.5 − 3.787)2 + (4.8 − 3.787)2 + · · · + (4.8 − 3.787)2 ] = 0.94284; √ √ s = s2 = 0.9428 = 0.971.

1 1.8 s2 = 20−1 [(18.71 − 20.7675)2 + (21.41 − 20.7675)2 + · · · + (21.12 − 20.7675)2 ] = 2.5329; √ s = 2.5345 = 1.5915. 1 1.9 (a) s2No Aging = 10−1 [(227 − 222.10)2 + (222 − 222.10)2 + · · · + (221 − 222.10)2 ] = 23.66; √ sNo Aging = 23.62 = 4.86. 1 [(219 − 209.90) 2 + (214 − 209.90)2 + · · · + (205 − 209.90)2 ] = 42.10; s2Aging = √ 10−1 sAging = 42.12 = 6.49.

(b) Based on the numbers in (a), the variation in “Aging” is smaller that the variation in “No Aging” although the diﬀerence is not so apparent in the plot. √ 1.10 For company A: s2A = 1.2078 and sA = √1.2072 = 1.099. For company B: s2B = 0.3249 and sB = 0.3249 = 0.570. 1.11 For the control group: s2Control = 69.38 and sControl = 8.33. For the treatment group: s2Treatment = 128.04 and sTreatment = 11.32. 1.12 For the cure temperature at 20◦ C: s220◦ C = 0.005 and s20◦ C = 0.071. For the cure temperature at 45◦ C: s245◦ C = 0.0413 and s45◦ C = 0.2032. The variation of the tensile strength is inﬂuenced by the increase of cure temperature. ¯ = 124.3 and median = X ˜ = 120; 1.13 (a) Mean = X (b) 175 is an extreme observation. ¯ = 570.5 and median = X ˜ = 571; 1.14 (a) Mean = X (b) Variance = s2 = 10; standard deviation= s = 3.162; range=10; (c) Variation of the diameters seems too big so the quality is questionable. 1.15 Yes. The value 0.03125 is actually a P -value and a small value of this quantity means that the outcome (i.e., HHHHH ) is very unlikely to happen with a fair coin. 1.16 The term on the left side can be manipulated to n

The gap represents an increase of over 400 ppm. It appears from the data that hydrocarbon emissions decreased considerably between 1980 and 1990 and that the extreme large emission (over 500 ppm) were no longer in evidence. ¯ = 2.8973 and s = 0.5415. 1.24 (a) X

¯ tr(10) = 30.97. This trimmed mean is in the middle of the mean and median using the (d) X full amount of data. Due to the skewness of the data to the right (see plot in (c)), it is common to use trimmed data to have a more robust result. 1.26 If a model using the function of percent of families to predict staﬀ salaries, it is likely that the model would be wrong due to several extreme values of the data. Actually if a scatter plot of these two data sets is made, it is easy to see that some outlier would inﬂuence the trend.

In the ﬁgure, “×” represents the low-injection-velocity group and “◦” represents the high-injection-velocity group. (b) In this time, the shrinkage values are much higher for the high-injection-velocity group than those for the low-injection-velocity group. Also, the variation for the former group is much higher as well. (c) Since the shrinkage eﬀects change in diﬀerent direction between low mode temperature and high mold temperature, the apparent interactions between the mold temperature and injection velocity are signiﬁcant. 1.32 An interaction plot is shown next. mean shrinkage value high mold temp

It is quite obvious to ﬁnd the interaction between the two variables. Since in this experimental data, those two variables can be controlled each at two levels, the interaction can be inves-

tigated. However, if the data are from an observational studies, in which the variable values cannot be controlled, it would be diﬃcult to study the interactions among these variables.

2.22 With n1 = 8 blood types and n2 = 3 classiﬁcations of blood pressure, the multiplication rule gives n1 n2 = (8)(3) = 24 classiﬁcations. 2.23 Since the die can land in n1 = 6 ways and a letter can be selected in n2 = 26 ways, the multiplication rule gives n1 n2 = (6)(26) = 156 points in S. 2.24 Since a student may be classiﬁed according to n1 = 4 class standing and n2 = 2 gender classiﬁcations, the multiplication rule gives n1 n2 = (4)(2) = 8 possible classiﬁcations for the students. 2.25 With n1 = 5 diﬀerent shoe styles in n2 = 4 diﬀerent colors, the multiplication rule gives n1 n2 = (5)(4) = 20 diﬀerent pairs of shoes. 2.26 Using Theorem 2.8, we obtain the followings.

2.27 Using the generalized multiplication rule, there are n1 × n2 × n3 × n4 = (4)(3)(2)(2) = 48 diﬀerent house plans available. 2.28 With n1 = 5 diﬀerent manufacturers, n2 = 3 diﬀerent preparations, and n3 = 2 diﬀerent strengths, the generalized multiplication rule yields n1 n2 n3 = (5)(3)(2) = 30 diﬀerent ways to prescribe a drug for asthma. 2.29 With n1 = 3 race cars, n2 = 5 brands of gasoline, n3 = 7 test sites, and n4 = 2 drivers, the generalized multiplication rule yields (3)(5)(7)(2) = 210 test runs. 2.30 With n1 = 2 choices for the ﬁrst question, n2 = 2 choices for the second question, and so forth, the generalized multiplication rule yields n1 n2 · · · n9 = 29 = 512 ways to answer the test. 2.31 Since the ﬁrst digit is a 5, there are n1 = 9 possibilities for the second digit and then n2 = 8 possibilities for the third digit. Therefore, by the multiplication rule there are n1 n2 = (9)(8) = 72 registrations to be checked. 2.32 (a) By Theorem 2.3, there are 6! = 720 ways. (b) A certain 3 persons can follow each other in a line of 6 people in a speciﬁed order is 4 ways or in (4)(3!) = 24 ways with regard to order. The other 3 persons can then be placed in line in 3! = 6 ways. By Theorem 2.1, there are total (24)(6) = 144 ways to line up 6 people with a certain 3 following each other. (c) Similar as in (b), the number of ways that a speciﬁed 2 persons can follow each other in a line of 6 people is (5)(2!)(4!) = 240 ways. Therefore, there are 720 − 240 = 480 ways if a certain 2 persons refuse to follow each other. 2.33 (a) With n1 = 4 possible answers for the ﬁrst question, n2 = 4 possible answers for the second question, and so forth, the generalized multiplication rule yields 45 = 1024 ways to answer the test.

(b) With n1 = 3 wrong answers for the ﬁrst question, n2 = 3 wrong answers for the second question, and so forth, the generalized multiplication rule yields n1 n2 n3 n4 n5 = (3)(3)(3)(3)(3) = 35 = 243 ways to answer the test and get all questions wrong. 2.34 (a) By Theorem 2.3, 7! = 5040. (b) Since the ﬁrst letter must be m, the remaining 6 letters can be arranged in 6! = 720 ways. 2.35 The ﬁrst house can be placed on any of the n1 = 9 lots, the second house on any of the remaining n2 = 8 lots, and so forth. Therefore, there are 9! = 362, 880 ways to place the 9 homes on the 9 lots. 2.36 (a) Any of the 6 nonzero digits can be chosen for the hundreds position, and of the remaining 6 digits for the tens position, leaving 5 digits for the units position. So, there are (6)(6)(5) = 180 three digit numbers. (b) The units position can be ﬁlled using any of the 3 odd digits. Any of the remaining 5 nonzero digits can be chosen for the hundreds position, leaving a choice of 5 digits for the tens position. By Theorem 2.2, there are (3)(5)(5) = 75 three digit odd numbers. (c) If a 4, 5, or 6 is used in the hundreds position there remain 6 and 5 choices, respectively, for the tens and units positions. This gives (3)(6)(5) = 90 three digit numbers beginning with a 4, 5, or 6. If a 3 is used in the hundreds position, then a 4, 5, or 6 must be used in the tens position leaving 5 choices for the units position. In this case, there are (1)(3)(5) = 15 three digit number begin with a 3. So, the total number of three digit numbers that are greater than 330 is 90 + 15 = 105. 2.37 The ﬁrst seat must be ﬁlled by any of 5 girls and the second seat by any of 4 boys. Continuing in this manner, the total number of ways to seat the 5 girls and 4 boys is (5)(4)(4)(3)(3)(2)(2)(1)(1) = 2880. 2.38 (a) 8! = 40320. (b) There are 4! ways to seat 4 couples and then each member of a couple can be interchanged resulting in 24 (4!) = 384 ways. (c) By Theorem 2.3, the members of each gender can be seated in 4! ways. Then using Theorem 2.1, both men and women can be seated in (4!)(4!) = 576 ways. 2.39 (a) Any of the n1 = 8 ﬁnalists may come in ﬁrst, and of the n2 = 7 remaining ﬁnalists can then come in second, and so forth. By Theorem 2.3, there 8! = 40320 possible orders in which 8 ﬁnalists may ﬁnish the spelling bee. (b) The possible orders for the ﬁrst three positions are 8 P3 = 2.40 By Theorem 2.4, 8 P5 =

2.48 Assume February 29th as March 1st for the leap year. There are total 365 days in a year. The number of ways that all these 60 students will have diﬀerent birth dates (i.e, arranging 60 from 365) is 365 P60 . This is a very large number. 2.49 (a) Sum of the probabilities exceeds 1.

2.51 S = {\$10, \$25, \$100} with weights 275/500 = 11/20, 150/500 = 3/10, and 75/500 = 3/20, respectively. The probability that the ﬁrst envelope purchased contains less than \$100 is equal to 11/20 + 3/10 = 17/20. 2.52 (a) P (S ∩ D ) = 88/500 = 22/125. (b) P (E ∩ D ∩ S ) = 31/500. (c) P (S ∩ E ) = 171/500. 2.53 Consider the events S: industry will locate in Shanghai, B: industry will locate in Beijing. (a) P (S ∩ B) = P (S) + P (B) − P (S ∪ B) = 0.7 + 0.4 − 0.8 = 0.3. (b) P (S ∩ B ) = 1 − P (S ∪ B) = 1 − 0.8 = 0.2. 2.54 Consider the events B: customer invests in tax-free bonds, M : customer invests in mutual funds. (a) P (B ∪ M ) = P (B) + P (M ) − P (B ∩ M ) = 0.6 + 0.3 − 0.15 = 0.75. (b) P (B ∩ M ) = 1 − P (B ∪ M ) = 1 − 0.75 = 0.25. 2.55 By Theorem 2.2, there are N = (26)(25)(24)(9)(8)(7)(6) = 47, 174, 400 possible ways to code the items of which n = (5)(25)(24)(8)(7)(6)(4) = 4, 032, 000 begin with a vowel and end with 10 . an even digit. Therefore, Nn = 117

2.56 (a) Let A = Defect in brake system; B = Defect in fuel system; P (A ∪ B) = P (A) + P (B) − P (A ∩ B) = 0.25 + 0.17 − 0.15 = 0.27. (b) P (No defect) = 1 − P (A ∪ B) = 1 − 0.27 = 0.73. 2.57 (a) Since 5 of the 26 letters are vowels, we get a probability of 5/26. (b) Since 9 of the 26 letters precede j, we get a probability of 9/26. (c) Since 19 of the 26 letters follow g, we get a probability of 19/26. 2.58 (a) Of the (6)(6) = 36 elements in the sample space, only 5 elements (2,6), (3,5), (4,4), (5,3), and (6,2) add to 8. Hence the probability of obtaining a total of 8 is then 5/36. (b) Ten of the 36 elements total at most 5. Hence the probability of obtaining a total of at most is 10/36=5/18.

(b) The probability that all six purchasing the electric oven or all six purchasing the gas oven is 0.007 + 0.104 = 0.111. So the probability that at least one of each type is purchased is 1 − 0.111 = 0.889. 2.69 (a) P (C ) = 1 − P (A) − P (B) = 1 − 0.990 − 0.001 = 0.009; (b) P (B ) = 1 − P (B) = 1 − 0.001 = 0.999; (c) P (B) + P (C ) = 0.01. 2.70 (a) (\$4.50 − \$4.00) × 50, 000 = \$25, 000; (b) Since the probability of underﬁlling is 0.001, we would expect 50, 000 × 0.001 = 50 boxes to be underﬁlled. So, instead of having (\$4.50 − \$4.00) × 50 = \$25 proﬁt for those 50 boxes, there are a loss of \$4.00 × 50 = \$200 due to the cost. So, the loss in proﬁt expected due to underﬁlling is \$25 + \$200 = \$250. 2.71 (a) 1 − 0.95 − 0.002 = 0.048; (b) (\$25.00 − \$20.00) × 10, 000 = \$50, 000; (c) (0.05)(10, 000) × \$5.00 + (0.05)(10, 000) × \$20 = \$12, 500. 2.72 P (A ∩ B ) = 1 − P (A ∪ B) = 1 − (P (A) + P (B) − P (A ∩ B) = 1 + P (A ∩ B) − P (A) − P (B). 2.73 (a) The probability that a convict who pushed dope, also committed armed robbery.
