2. A bag contains 6 red marbles, 3 blue marbles, and 7 green marbles. If a marble is randomly selected from the bag, what is the probability that it is blue? • 1/3 • 1/7 • 3/16 • 1/13

3. Assume that one student in a class of 27 students is randomly selected to win a prize. Would it be ‘unusual’ to win? • Yes • No

4. A die with 8 sides is rolled. What is the probability of rolling a number less than 7? • 7/8 • 6 • 3/4 • 1/8

5. If a person is randomly selected, find the probability that his or her birthday is in May. Ignore leap years. • 1/365 • 1/12 • 1/31 • 31/365

6. A bag contains 8 red marbles, 4 blue marbles, and 1 green marble. Find P(not blue). • 9/13 • 9 • 13/9 • 4/13

7. Of 45 people who answered “yes” to a question, 13 were male. Of the 83 people that answered “no” to a question, 7 were male. If one person is selected at random from the group, find the probability that the person answered “yes” or was male. • 0.156 • 0.406 • 0.289 • 0.508

8. How many ways can an IRS auditor select 6 of 11 tax returns for an audit? • 462 • 332,640 • 1,771,561 • 720

10. If A and B are dependent events, then P(A and B) is • P(A) x P(B|A) • P(A) x P(B) • P(A) x P(A|B)

11. One of the 87 flights is randomly selected. Find the probability that the flight selected arrived on time given that it was an Upstate Airlines flight. • 43/87 • 11/76 • 43/48 • None of the above is correct.
