Combinations

  • number of ways of selecting things where ORDER DOES NOT MATTER

(AB & BA are the same outcome)

  • This means the word combination lock should actual be a permutation lock since a “combination lock” needs order to open.

7-Interval 13-Interval Use this data to construct relative frequency distributions using 7 equal intervals and 13 equal intervals. State policies on social service programs require approximately 40 percent of the program participants to be older than 50.
a. Is the program in compliance with the policy?
b. Does your 13-interval relative frequency distribution help you answer part a better then your 7-interval distribution?
c. Suppose the director of social services wanted to know the proportion of program participants between 45-80 years old. Could you estimate the answer better for her better with a 7- or a 13-interval relative frequency distribution

Construct a relative frequency distribution of the data. Use 5 equal class widths that will include all of the data.
a. What is the class width?
b. What statement can you make about the effectiveness of order processing from the frequency distribution?
c. If the company wants to insure that half of its deliveries are made in 10 days or less, can you determine from the frequency distribution whether they have reached this goal?
