c. P (y<7)

d. P (y?6)

Question 2:

Over a long period of time in a large multinational corporation, 10% of all sales trainees are rated outstanding, 75% are rated as excellent, 10% are rated as satisfactory, and 5% are considered unsatisfactory. Fin the following probabilities for a sample of 10 trainees selected at random:

a. Two are rated as outstanding.

b. Two or more are rated as outstanding.

c. Eight of the ten are rated either outstanding or excellent.

d. None of the trainees is rated as unsatisfactory.

NOTE:

Please use SAS (i.e. enterprise guide) to compute your answers for question 1 & 2 above.

Question 3:

Let Y be a random variable having a binomial distribution with parameters

and p, i.e.,

Y ? Binomial (,p)

Using

i. the exact binomial distribution,

ii. the normal approximation to the binomial without the continuity

correction,

iii. the normal approximation to the binomial with the continuity correction,

Find,

P[Y ?1]

for

(1) p .1

(2) p .3

Does the continuity correction always yield a better approximation?

NOTE:

Compute normal probability and critical values using SAS.

b. P (y>4)

c. P (y<7)

d. P (y?6)
