1. A report issued by the American Association of Building Contractors indicates that 40% of all home buyers will do some remodeling to their home within the first 5 years of home ownership. Assuming this is true, determine the expected number (i.e., mean) of home buyers from a sample of 20 home buyers that will do some remodeling to their home within the first 5 years of home ownership.

2. A report issued by the American Association of Building Contractors indicates that 40% of all home buyers will do some remodeling to their home within the first 5 years of home ownership. Assuming this is true, determine the expected spread in the number (i.e., mean ± 1 standard deviation) of home buyers (from sample of 20 home buyers) that will do some remodeling to their home within the first 5 years of home ownership.

3. A report issued by the American Association of Building Contractors indicates that 40% of all home buyers will do some remodeling to their home within the first 5 years of home ownership. Assuming this is true, use the binomial distribution table to determine the probability that in a random sample of 20 home buyers:

2 or fewer will remodel their homes within the first 5 years

4. A report issued by the American Association of Building Contractors indicates that 40% of all home buyers will do some remodeling to their home within the first 5 years of home ownership. Assuming this is true, use the binomial distribution table to determine the probability that in a random sample of 20 home buyers:

3 will remodel their homes within the first 5 years

5. A report issued by the American Association of Building Contractors indicates that 40% of all home buyers will do some remodeling to their home within the first 5 years of home ownership. Assuming this is true, use the binomial distribution table to determine the probability that in a random sample of 20 home buyers:

5 or more will remodel their homes within the first 5 years

6. Brian is the owner of 702 helicopters. He knows that for the past year, his company has had an average of 10 people vomit during the Las Vegas Strip tour per year. Assuming this is accurate, use the Poisson distribution table to determine the probability that:

fewer than 10 people will vomit next year

7. Brian is the owner of 702 helicopters. He knows that for the past year, his company has had an average of 10 people vomit during the Las Vegas Strip tour per year. Assuming this is accurate, use the Poisson distribution table to determine the probability that:

15 people will vomit over the next two years

8. Brian is the owner of 702 helicopters. He knows that for the past year, his company has had an average of 10 people vomit during the Las Vegas Strip tour per year. Assuming this is accurate, use the Poisson distribution table to determine the probability that:

more than 5 people will vomit next month

A contractor is required by a county planning department to submit anywhere from one to five forms (depending on the nature of the project) in applying for a building permit

#### Normal probability distribution and the standard deviation

For the most recent year available the mean annual cost to attend a private university in the US was \$26,889. Assume the distribution of annual costs follows a normal probab

#### Probability that a randomly selected well is too expensive

If the proportion of water is greater than 0.20, then the well is too expensive to operate and maintain. What is the probability that a randomly selected well is too expensi

#### How many plants sampled if no preliminary estimate available

How many plants must be sampled if no preliminary estimate is available? If less than that many plants is sampled, which answer best describes what happened?

#### Executory costs and unguaranteed residual value

Assume that on January 1, 2014, Yard Waste Corp. signs a 6-year noncancelable lease agreement to lease an industrial-strength mulching machine. The following information per
