(a) It found that: • 48% of its passengers were male • 63% of its female passengers came from overseas • 21% of all passengers were males from overseas. You may assume that the event that a passenger is male and the event that a passenger is from overseas are independent. Find the probability that a randomly selected male passenger was from overseas. The tour company decides to analyse its data in more depth. (a) It finds that: • the probability of an overseas passenger coming from Australia is 2/3 • the probability of an overseas passenger coming from Australia or aged over 30 is 3/4 • the probability of an overseas passenger coming from Australia and aged over 30 is 1/10. Find the probability that an overseas passenger is aged over 30. In 2006, a survey was conducted on households in Hamilton, Canada. (a) Let the random variable X represent the number of cars in a randomly chosen household at the time of the survey. The survey gave the following probability distribution for X. x 0 1 2 3 4 P(X = x) 0.059 0.383 0.377 0.153 0.028 Find the expected value of X.
