In: Statistics and Probability

the results of a survey in which people from high income countries were asked to report their level of education (less than basic, basic and advanced) and whether they were employed or not. The results are in thousands and are for the 2016-17 period.

You work for a Human Resources firm interested in global employment trends. You randomly sample 30 employed people from high income countries and ask them about their level of education.

a) What is the probability that 24 or fewer of these people would have an advanced education? (Round to 3 decimals)

b) What is the probability that 3 or more of these people would have a less than basic education? (Round to 4 decimals)

c) What is the probability that at least 10 of these people would have a basic education? (Round to 2 decimals)

d) What's the expected number of employed people with a basic education (Round to the nearest integer)?

e) What does this data tell you about employment and education in high income countries?

(a)

Let X is a random variable shows the number of students out of 30 have an advanced education. Here X has binomial distribution with parameter n=30 and p=0.759. The probability that 24 or fewer of these people would have an advanced education is

**Answer: 0.764**

(b)

Let X is a random variable shows the number of students out of 30 have less than basic education. Here X has binomial distribution with parameter n=30 and p=0.0178.

The probability that 3 or more of these people would have a less than basic education is

**Answer: 0.0160**

(c)

Let X is a random variable shows the number of students out of 30 have basic education. Here X has binomial distribution with parameter n=30 and p=0.2233.

The probability that at least 10 of these people would have a basic education is

**Answer: 0.11**

(d)

The expected number of employed people with a basic education is

30 * 0.2233 = 6.699

**Answer: 7**

(e)

As the education level increases, employment increase.

In a Survey people were asked to report their level of Math
Anxiety as High, Medium, Low or None. The table below reflects the

that the level of math anxiety is different for female and male
students at the α = 0.1 level of significance?
