A New Zealand tour company collected data over a period of a year to investigate information about its
passengers.
(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.
