    Normalized Z-Table Questiong Is this right having problem with final answer

    The amount of time it takes to produce a part is normally distributed with a mean equal to 10 second and standard deviation equal to 2 seconds. Fine the probability that the time it will take to produce any given part will be between 11 and 13.6 seconds. z = 11-10/2 = 1/2 = 0.5 z score =...

    Probability calculation problem for a ranked set sample

    Let us consider a case where a ranked set sampling scheme from $n^2$ subjects has been adopted. There are a total of $n$ RSS blocks. So each RSS block contains $n$ subjects. We will follow up them. Some of these subjects will fulfill a certain criterion and get a treatment and some will not be...

    No clue when to use nCr or multiply the probabilites..

    I'm completely baffled as to when to use nCr or multiply the probabilites.. Here's an example.. Jane buys 5 jam donuts, 4 cream donuts and 3 plain donuts. Calculate the probabilities of the following events. A)All 3 donuts eaten contain jam.. B) the 3 donuts are of different kind. Why wouldn't...
