1) In a recent survey of college freshman, 42% of students checked the box next to “exercise regularly”, 45% checked the box next to “eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day”, and 21% checked the box “neither.” Use the appropriate probability notation in your answers to each question.

First, put student responses in the appropriate boxes of our two-way relative frequency table:

Exercise (E)

Totals

Eats fruit and veggies (Fv)

Totals

100%

Use the appropriate probability notation in your answers to each question.

a) What is the joint probability of randomly selecting a surveyed freshman who exercises and eats 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day?

b) What is the probability of selecting a freshman who exercises regularly or eats 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day?

c) What is the probability of a student not eating fruits or vegetables?

d) What is the probability of a freshman not exercising regularly and not eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day?

e) Complete this conditional relative frequency table rounding to the whole nearest percentage (e.g. 12%).

Exercise (E)

Eats fruit and veggies (Fv)

f) Is there an association between eating fruits and vegetables and exercise? Explain fully.

2) In Canada 85% of households have televisions (T). 61% of households have televisions and internet (I) access. 9% have neither.

b) What is the probability of selecting a Canadian house at random that has internet access but no television?

c) What is the conditional probability of selecting a house that has internet given that it has a television?

d) Of the house that do not have televisions, what is the conditional probability of selecting one that has internet access?

e) Complete this conditional relative frequency table rounding to the whole nearest percentage (e.g. 12%).
