Problem 10BSC

 

Develop a simulation using a TI-83/84 Plus calculator, STATDISK, Minitab, Excel, or any other suitable calculator or computer software program.

Simulating Left-Handedness Refer to Exercise, which required a description of a simulation.

a. Conduct the simulation and record the number of left-handed people. Is the percentage of left-handed people from the simulation reasonably close to the value of 10%?

b. Repeat the simulation until it has been conducted a total of 10 times. Record the numbers of left-handed people in each case. Based on the results, would it be unlikely to randomly select 15 people and find that none of them is left-handed?

Exercise

Describe the simulation procedure. (For example, to simulate 10 births, use a random number generator to generate 10 integers between 0 and 1 inclusive, and consider 0 to be a male and 1 to be a female.)

Lefties Ten percent of people are left-handed. In a study of dexterity, 15 people are randomly selected. Describe a procedure for using software or a TI-83/84 Plus calculator to simulate the random selection of 15 people. Each of the 15 outcomes should be an indication of one of two results: (1) Subject is left-handed; (2) subject is not left-handed.
