It's JessiccaI_198 as scribe today. Today we had two exam rehearsals; one for identities in the morning and the other one was for counting in the afternoon.

For us it is a relief but we must always put in mind that learning in a never ending process so there are still maths stuffs out there waiting for us. Anyway, this morning we did a rehearsal examination in probability. Mr. K gave us 30 minutes to work on it then after that we had a group discussion where we talked about our answers and did some brainstorming. Afterwards, Mr. K discussed with to us the right answers with their respective solutions. The questions given are:<br /><br />(1) A certain soccer player has scored on 82% of his penalty kicks throughout his career. Given this information, the probabality that he will score on exactly 4 of his next 5 penalty kicks, correct to the nearest hundredth, is<br /><br />(a) 0.80<br />(b) 0.66<br />(c) 0.41<br />(d) 0.08<br /><br /><span style="color:#006600;">The answer is </span><span style="color:#ff0000;">(c) </span><span style="color:#ff0000;">0.41 </span><span style="color:#006600;">because the solution for this problem is </span><br /><br /><br /><br /><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_onMdYB7Msek/RbWPU7cUHhI/AAAAAAAAAAM/V5Y5v_5VNZg/s1600-h/answer+number+one(scribe).bmp"><img id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5023078549118262802" style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_onMdYB7Msek/RbWPU7cUHhI/AAAAAAAAAAM/V5Y5v_5VNZg/s400/answer+number+one(scribe).bmp" border="0" /></a><br />(2) If P(A) = 3/4 and P(A and B)= 1/2, where A and B are dependant events, then P(BA) equals:<br /><br />(a) 1/4<br />(b) 3/8<br />(c) 2/3<br />(d) 5/4<br /><br /><span style="color:#006600;">The answer is </span><span style="color:#ff0000;">(c) 2/3</span><span style="color:#006600;">. The problem indicated that A and B occured in dependant events, which means that both have to happen. </span><br /><br /><br /><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">Solution: </span><br /></p><br /><br /><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">P(A) * P(B) = 1/2</span><br /></p><br /><br /><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">3/4 * P(B) = 1/2</span><br /></p><br /><br /><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">P(B) = 1/2 * 4/3</span><br /></p><br /><br /><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">P(B) = 2/3</span></p><p><span style="color:#ff0000;"></span><br />(3) Peter places 5 equal-sized tiles in a cloth bag. Each tile has a letter on it. The letters are P, E, T, E and R. The probability that Peter selects the 5 tiles, one at a time, in order such that they spell <strong>PETER, </strong>correct to the nearest hundredth, is<br /></p><br /><br /><br /><p><span style="color:#006600;">The answer is </span><span style="color:#ff0000;">0.02.</span><br />><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_onMdYB7Msek/RbWXD7cUHiI/AAAAAAAAAAY/Aas7fwi7Wu4/s1600-h/number+three.bmp"><img id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5023087053153508898" style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_onMdYB7Msek/RbWXD7cUHiI/AAAAAAAAAAY/Aas7fwi7Wu4/s400/number+three.bmp" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_onMdYB7Msek/RbWXOLcUHjI/AAAAAAAAAAg/7_xnVpon4VY/s1600-h/number+three+(2).bmp"><img id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5023087229247168050" style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_onMdYB7Msek/RbWXOLcUHjI/AAAAAAAAAAg/7_xnVpon4VY/s400/number+three+(2).bmp" border="0" /></a><br />(4) A child 2 quarters, 2 dimes, and 3 nickels in his pocket, but he does not understand the value of any of the coins. He puts 35cents worth of candy on the counter at a store and randomly selects two coins from his pocket.

And that it doesn’t say what the difference really is so its 1<br />‘n is the rank of the rank of the term we want to find. The rank is the sum in this case and we want to find what the sum is when the sequence reaches 5000.<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">S<sub>n</sub> = n/2[2(t1) + (n – 1)d]<br />S<sub>5000</sub> = (5000/2)[2(1) + (5000 – 1)1]<br />S<sub>5000</sub> = 2500[2 + 4999]<br />S<sub>5000</sub> = 2500 = [5001]<br />S<sub>5000</sub> = 12 502 500</span><br /><br />b) what is the sum of all multiple of 7 between 1 & 5000?<br /><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">T<sub>1</sub> = 7<br />D = 7<br />N = 714<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">Since it says multiples of 7,the initial term is 7 because you start with 7 when it comes to “multiples of 7”. The difference is 7 because it increases by 7 each time.<br />Now we want to find the sum of sequence when it reaches to 5000. but we don’t really want to find 5000. since we’re looking for the sum of the multiples 7 between 7 & 5000 then there really aren’t 5000 terms if we’re increasing by 7 each time. To find what the rank is, we need to 5000/7. and you get 714. whatever. Don’t need to worry about the decimal answers if I were you.<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">S<sub>n</sub> = n/2[2(t1) + (n – 1)d]<br />S<sub>714</sub> = (714/2)[2(7) + (714 – 1)7]<br />S<sub>714</sub> = 357[(14 + 7130)]<br />S<sub>714</sub> = 1 784 785</span><br /><br />c) What is the sum of all integers from 1 to 5000 inclusive that are not multiple of 7?<br /><br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">12 502 500 – 1 786 785<br />= 10 715 715</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">This is a no brainer but I’ll explain it to you anyways. To get the answer you take the sum of all integers from 1 to 5000 and subtracted by the sum of the multiples of 7.</span><br /><br />A super ball is dropped from a height of 200 cm.

What is the total vertical distance traveled by the ball when it hits the ground for the fourth time?<br /><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">We know that each time it hits the ground,the ball comes back ¾ of the last distance it traveled. So it traveled down, up, down, up, down, up, and down. So in order to calculate the total distance it traveled. We need to brake this into 2 solutions first. We need to solve the “down” distance and then the “up” distance and then add the together.<br /></span><br />Down:<br /><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">So what are the sequences?<br /><br />Well since the first term is 200 and it decreases every time by a ¼( bounces back to ¾ of the last term) and that it hits the ground for times…..</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">200 + 150 + 112.5 + 84.375<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#3333ff;">(but we really didn’t need to know that only the first term)</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#3333ff;">*DID YOU KNOW: that all the things we need to know to solve the question was in the question itself?

Anyways Probability is alright. There are some questions that I find I'm able to do fast and other questions where I really have to think about it and I get stuck because I can't find the compliment. I actually think probablitity is a lot easier than combinations because probability uses combinations so I'm a lot more familiar with it. But overall I understand how to get some of the questions. But questions like the one on the pre-test I still need to work on. I'm just glad I made it on time to do the BoB. 2 minutes before math starts haha....

But we also need to know if it is mutually exlcusive or not, independent or dependent...<br />...but there's only one thing that we shoulld always keep in mind regarding the probabilities, it is a number between <strong>0</strong> and <strong>1</strong> and the sum of the probabilities of the events will always equal to <strong>1</strong>...<br /><br />I hope everyone will do good on the test..Good luck and God Bless!!ricardonoreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-72419879275293230902007-01-16T23:04:00.000-06:002007-01-16T23:08:52.387-06:00Jefferson's blogging on bloggingWEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLL, This sort of hard to explain on my part. In probability it's easy to understand after the teacher explains it to you. But when you apply it, It's all a puzzle, and i hate puzzles! I know how to do probability questions that involve the word "given that", but I'm just a little confused with the independent and dependent and mutually exclusive and not mutually exclusive. I mean what do you do after you find that out? what sort of math is involved if these events are mutually exclusive. I have the hardest time understanding it. They rest of probability is A-OK for me! the tree diagram always helps and it gives you more than you're looking for if you know what I mean.Jeffersonhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14519676379585208097noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-41620179487762063202007-01-16T22:57:00.000-06:002007-01-16T23:12:42.669-06:00BOB.... how about probability<span style="color: rgb(51, 153, 153);">What was the probability that after taking the day off school to sleep so that maybe i'd get my voice back, that i would remember to do my blogging on blogging?? all i can say is <span style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">Thanks</span> to the kids that posted them before now, cause when i went to check the scribe post to see what i missed, BOBs were posted!!

My <span style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">favourite</span> thing about the unit was doing the "what is the probability of A given that you already B?" those ones were no sweat... but the combinatoric ones still trip me up every once in a while... especially when i get distracted :D ... so i hope that i can <span style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">keep focused</span> and do well on that test tomorrow... and of course that everyone else does well too.... ok that's all for me tonight cause i'm getting some more sleep... who knows i might even get my whole voice back tomorrow.... till then, like mr. k says <span style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">"Learn hard!!"</span></span>Lisahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01516225790109059190noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-66954775467473746222007-01-16T22:02:00.000-06:002007-01-16T22:08:19.099-06:00jho's blogThis unit had it's pros and cons. In the beggining i was getting confused, but since we were exposed to this unit for quite some time i was able to understand the concept, and therefore i am confident i will do well in this test. Hmmm maybe..haahha can't be too confident..but that pre-test was good, i was able to answer most of the questions without a problem. Hopefully i will do well tomorrow. Man i have been missing a lot of work lately, because of my loss of internet connection, got to earn some marks.

You would have to read twice ,to be able to write down your answer. sometime the answer you think its right might be even wrong.The first couple of part of unit was easy but it gets harder ,and harder. These questions you would have to do alot to be able to be familar with it. So practice,practice. Well thats all i have to say. byetennysonhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10130195764567198314noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-81611037960323041492007-01-16T21:26:00.000-06:002007-01-16T21:31:39.769-06:00Bloggin on BloggingIn probability well I'm not so good at it and let's just leave it at that. On plenty of questions I end up making plenty of mistakes, whether it's to using the incorrect method or leaving something out when solving the problem. While practice does help improve something, I've had close to a decade of problem solving questions and I doubt another few days is going to get me ready for those questions.Jasonhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09967057170543650076noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-43983697859768664382007-01-16T20:24:00.000-06:002007-01-16T21:34:05.221-06:00Scribe postHey everyone its Tennyson ,well today we just did some questions but i was unable to finish. i will just put down the one that we did only.The next scriber can carry out the other questions.<br /><br /><span style="color:#3366ff;">1).

I guess it is kinda neat though how they're together like that. Overall I did like this probability unit, I hope I have as much luck tomorrow during the test though! I wish everyone luck on that, okay bye bye.oliver_796http://www.blogger.com/profile/05856731575280461678noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-25414403802315665252007-01-16T19:05:00.000-06:002007-01-16T19:19:24.771-06:00daph's seventh BOBProbability for me is one of the scariest topics in mathematics. I found it hard to solve questions about cards and its decks. Moreover, thinking for the starting solution such as the tree diagram is another burden for me because I cannot really imagine things to be fitted in the diagram. On the contrary, I found it a little challenging. Some of the questions are really tough but sometimes I managed to solve it. Another is I want to acknowledge the effort that Mr. K gave to us in order to understand the probability well because he explained everything in details and still willing to explain it more if some of us was not able to understand it.<br />Honestly saying I'm not doing my assignments in probability. It is the reason why I cannot push myself in to a higher level when it comes to probability.<br />GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />God bless us all in the upcoming test!!!!!!!!Dr. Jhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06698467752880072410noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-49141503330611814842007-01-16T19:00:00.000-06:002007-01-16T19:10:43.144-06:00JessiccaI_198's BOB for ProbabilityI think that this unit was interesting, and I enjoyed doing it. I like making the trees for the problems which make everything easier and more organized. I just have to remember the methods to be used for certain problems. Using some of the Counting Principles helps a lot in some of the problems, and makes it easier to calculate too, so I'm glad we get to use some of that. Hopefully I won't forget to use some of the rules in the problems, but I'll probably just look at some of the problems we did in class so I would probably know which one I would need to use for the ones that will be on the test. The pre-test was a little hard, but I think I'm prepared for the unit test. Everyone Good Luck!!10101924http://www.blogger.com/profile/09798414964359359662noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-3634340356535240512007-01-16T17:34:00.000-06:002007-01-16T17:42:00.336-06:00BOBThis unit is very interesting and I get most of it. It's just that sometimes when it seems like you have the right answer, you don't..does that make any sense? What I mean by that is that a wrong answer can seem right as to the point where it looks possible so you end up getting the wrong answer. So multiple choice questions for this unit are pretty difficult. I really like the long answers where something is assumed given that an event happens, because they're a breeze. What's really hard to remember is that you always have to have the probability over the sample space and I always forget that. The pre-test was okay so I'm sure the test will be okay as well. <span style="color:#009900;">Good luck everyone.</span>Anhnoreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6358390296746580286.post-22450661481931139332007-01-15T16:17:00.000-06:002007-01-15T16:31:31.489-06:00Probability Quiz<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/34/72203037_f405466d10_m_d.jpg"><img style="float:right; margin:0 0 10px 10px;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 200px;" src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/34/72203037_f405466d10_m_d.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></a><br /><a href="http://quizstar.4teachers.org/indexs.jsp">Here</a> is it!
