7 A survey shows that 20% of JC students sleep before 11 p.m., 70% of them sleep
between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m., and the remaining sleep after 1 a.m. The probability that a
student is late for school the next day is 2%, 5% and 10% if he/she slept before 11 p.m.,
between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m., and after 1 a.m. the night before, respectively.
(i) Show that the probability that a randomly chosen student is late for school is
0.049. [2]
(ii) Find the probability that a randomly chosen student slept before 11 p.m. the night
before, given that he/she is not late for school. [3]

There are five school days in one week.
(iii) What is the probability that a randomly chosen student is on time for school every
day in a given week? [2]
(iv) Given that out of n weeks, the probability that a student is on time for school every
day in at most eight of the weeks is at most 0.14, find the least value of n. [4]

8 In a glass factory, it is found that 20% of glass panels produced by machine A are more
than 3 mm thick. Given that the thickness of glass panels produced by machine A
follows a normal distribution with mean 2.56 mm and standard deviation o mm, show
that 0.523 o = . [2]
(i) For the manufacture of a certain type of windscreen, two of the glass panels
produced by machine A are used to form a double panel. Find the probability that
the thickness of a double panel is between 4 mm and 6 mm. [2]
(ii) One hundred samples, each consisting of 5 glass panels produced by machine A
are tested for their thickness. In how many of these samples would you expect to
find the mean thickness to be greater than 3 mm? [3]
(iii) The thickness of glass panels produced by machine B for a certain type of shower
screen has a normal distribution with mean 5.9 mm and standard deviation
0.35 mm. Find the probability that the average thickness of 2 glass panels
produced by machine A and 3 glass panels produced by machine B is at least 4.2
mm. [3]

9 The mean number of packets of cereal sold in a supermarket per day is 124.5. Following
a television advertisement, the mean daily sales over a period of n days, is found to be
129.3 with variance 172.
(i) When 12 n = , test, at the 10% level of significance, whether the mean number of
packets of cereal sold per day has increased. [5]
(ii) If it is given instead that n is large and there is sufficient evidence at the
1% level of significance that the mean number of packets of cereal sold per day
has changed, find the range of values of n. [3]

10 The number of chandeliers sold in a shop in one week has a Poisson distribution with
mean 3.2.
(a) Show that the probability that at least 7 chandeliers are sold in a week is 0.0446. [2]
(b) A random sample of 150 weeks is taken. Using a suitable approximation, find the
probability that at least 7 chandeliers are sold per week in no more than 4 of the
weeks. [4]
(c) For two randomly chosen weeks, find the probability that one chandelier is sold in
one of the weeks given that a total of three chandeliers are sold. [3]
(d) Calculate the probability that the mean number of chandeliers sold in 100
randomly chosen weeks exceeds 3. [3]

11 (a) 1000 invited guests are expected to visit a private exhibition on a particular
Sunday. The organizer wishes to find out if there is a correlation between the age
of a visitor and the time he/she spent at the exhibition. With the knowledge that
visitor traffic is highest at around noon, the organizer decides to choose the first 50
visitors entering the exhibition from noon to record their age, as well as the
duration that they spent there.
(i) Give one reason why this is not a good sampling method. [1]
(ii) Describe how the sample could be chosen using systematic sampling and
explain why systematic sampling is a better sampling method in this context. [2]

(b) Eight guests at the exhibition are chosen at random. The following table records x,
the time spent (to the nearest minute) and y, the age of these visitors.

x (min) 79 45 301 483 250 175 282 15
y (years) 62 73 28 19 41 50 a 85

(i) Given that the least squares regression line of x on y is 521.86 6.5254 x y = ,
show that a = 32, to the nearest whole number. [2]
(ii) Calculate the corresponding estimated value of x when 85 y = , and comment
on the suitability of the linear model. [2]
(iii) Draw the scatter diagram for these values, labelling the axes clearly. [2]
(iv) Calculate the linear product moment correlation coefficient between x and y,
and comment on its value in the context of the question. [2]
(v) Use a regression line to give the best estimate that you can of the age of a
visitor who spent 430 minutes on the exhibition, leaving your answer to the
nearest whole number. Comment on the reliability of this estimate. [2]
