Hi Guys

Please help me with the below exercise:

A well-known business school in Cape Town conducted a survey in 2013 amongst its MBA applicants to determine whether students apply to only one business school. A sample of 2018 students was chosen and the following results were obtained: (rounded to 3 decimals)

Age Did you apply to more than one school?

Yes No Total

23 and under 207 201 408

24-26 299 379 678

27-30 185 268 453

31-35 66 193 259

36 and over 51 169 220

Total 808 1210 2018

1.1) What is the probability that a randomly selected applicant is younger than 27 [1]

1.2) What is the probability that a randomly selected applicant is 24-26 years old given that he/she did not apply to more than one school? [3]

1.3) What is the probability that a randomly selected applicant is 24-26 years old or did not apply to more than one school? [3]

1.4) Is the number of schools applied to independent of age? Let A = “Yes” and B = “23 and under”. [3]

1.1 P(A) = 408+678/2018 = 0.538

1.2 P(AlB) = 379/2018 / 1210/2018 = 0313

1.3 P(AUB) = P(A) + P(B) - P(AandB) = (678/2018)+(379/2018)-(379/2018) = 0336

1.4 P(A) *P(B) = (207/808) * (408/2018) = 0.0517 interpretation

I can't, I am investing time again to go through the theory. I just have a mental block and under so much pressure, I want to do well and but it's frustrating if you just can't absorb the content!
