Question 1
Indicate true or false, and explain your reasoning (be sure to show all calculations):
a. If a die is rolled three times, the chance of getting at least one ‘6' is 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 =1/2.
b. If a coin is tossed twice, the chance of getting at least one tail is 25%.

Question 2
A person is chosen from the population of New York City residents. Let A be the event that the person chosen works full-time, and B be the event that the person chosen gets 10 hours of sleep per night. If the probability that a person works full-time is 0.23, the probability that a person gets 10 hours of sleep per night is 0.15, and the probability that a person works full-time or gets 10 hours of sleep per night is 0.38, which of the following is true? Show all calculations and explain your reasoning.
a) The events A and B are independent.
b) The events A and B are mutually exclusive.
c) The events A and B are both mutually exclusive and independent.
d) The events A and B are neither mutually exclusive nor independent.

Question 3
An article published in Science News reported on research concerning the effects of regular Internet usage. According to the article, 36% of Americans with Internet access are regular Internet users, meaning that they log on for at least 5 hours per week. Among regular Internet users, 25% say that the web had reduced their social contact (e.g. talking with their family and friends or going out of town). What is the probability that a randomly selected American with Internet access is a regular Internet user who feels that the Web has reduced his or her social contact?
