Problem 11BSC

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

Simulating the Shaq Refer to Exercise, which required a description of a simulated free throw by basketball player Shaquille O’Neal.

a. Repeat the simulation five times and record the number of times that the free throw was made. Is the percentage of successful free throws from the simulation reasonably close to the value of 0.528?

b. Repeat part (a) until it has been conducted a total of 10 times. Record the proportion of successful free throws in each case. Based on the results, would it be unlikely for Shaquille O’Neal to make all of five free throws in a game?

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.)

Shaquille O'Neal Shaquille O’Neal was a professional basketball star who had a reputation for being a poor free-throw shooter. As of this writing, he made 5155 of the 9762 free throws that he attempted, for a success ratio of 0.528. Describe a procedure for using software or a TI-83/84 Plus calculator to simulate his next free throw. The outcome should be an indication of one of two results: (1) The free throw is made; (2) the free throw is missed.
