ENMGT 571Managerial Statistics I1.Exam ISolve the following problems:I. A computer rating service is commissioned to rank 10 different brands of flatscreen LCD monitors. The rating service is to rank the top three brands inorder 1 through 3 (12 points)a) In how many different ways can the computer rating service arriveat the final ranking?b) If the rating service can distinguish no difference among thebrands and therefore arrives at the final ranking by chance whatis the probability that one particular brand (call it Company Z sbrand) is ranked first?c) Suppose that the computer rating service is to choose the topthree from the group of 10 but is not to rank the three? In howmany different ways can the rating service choose the three to bedesignated top of the line flat screen LCD monitorsd) Consider the same information as part c and assume the ratingservice makes its choice by chance. Say there is a company(company X) that has two brands in the group of 10. What is theprobability that one of company s X brands is selected in the topthree?II. An experimenter is studying the effects of temperature pressure and type ofcatalyst on yield from a certain chemical reaction. Three differenttemperature four different pressures and five different catalysts are underconsideration: (12 points)a) If any particular experimental run involves the use of a singletemperature pressure and catalyst how many experimental runsare possible?b) How many experimental runs are there that involve use of thelowest temperature and two lowest pressures along with the fivecatalyst?c) Suppose that five different experimental runs are to be made onthe first day of experimentation. If the five are randomly selectedfrom among all the possibilities so that any group of five has thesame probability of selection what is the probability that adifferent catalyst is used on each run?ENMGT 571Managerial Statistics IIII.Exam IA mathematics professor wishes to schedule an appointment with each ofher eight teaching assistants four men and four women to discuss hercalculus course. Suppose all possible orderings of appointments are equallylikely to be selected.

If a contaminatedcatfish is captured from the Tennessee River what is theprobability that it was captured 275-300 miles upstream?b) What is the probability of being a channel catfish (CC)?2.A box in a certain supply room contains eleven 40-W light bulbs and nine 75-Wbulbs. Suppose that three bulbs are randomly selected(15 pts)a. What is the probability that exactly two of the of the selected bulbs are rated 75W?b. What is the probability that at least one 40W bulb is selected?c. Given a 40-W bulb is selected on the first draw what is the probability ofselecting exactly one more 40-W?ENMGT 571Managerial Statistics I3.Exam IA market study taken at a local sporting goods store showed that of 30 peoplequestioned 18 owned tents 15 owned sleeping bags 14 owned camping stoves6 owned both tents and camping stoves and 10 owned both sleeping bags andcamping stoves: (15 pts)a.
