Let n = 9 in the T statistic defined in Equation 5.5-2. (a) Find t0.025 so that P(−t0.025 ≤ T ≤ t0.025) = 0.95. (b) Solve the inequality [−t0.025 ≤ T ≤ t0.025] so that μ is in the middle. Let X and Y equal the respective numbers of hours a randomly selected child watches movies or cartoons on TV during a certain month. From experience, it is known that E(X) = 30, E(Y) = 50, Var(X) = 52, Var(Y) = 64, and ...In the casino game roulette, the probability of winning with a bet on red is p = 18/38.
