The Canmark Research Center Airport Customer Satisfaction Survey uses an online questionnaire to provide airlines and airports with customer satisfaction ratings for all aspects of the customers' flight experience. After completing a flight, customers receive an email asking them to go to the website and rate a variety of factors, including the reservation process, the check-in process, luggage policy, cleanliness of gate area, service by flight attendants, food/beverage selection, on-time arrival, and so on. A five-point scale, with Excellent (E), Very Good (V), Good (G), Fair (F), and Poor (P), is used to record the customer ratings for each survey question. Assume that passengers on a Delta Airlines flight from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to Atlanta, Georgia, provided the following ratings for the question, "Please rate the airline based on your overall experience with this flight." The sample ratings are shown below.

What do these summaries indicate about the overall customer satisfaction with the Delta flight?

% of customers are satisfied with the Delta flight at either a good, very good, or excellent rating. Only % of customers rated the Delta flight Fair or Poor.

b. The online survey questionnaire enabled respondents to explain any aspect of the flight that failed to meet expectations. Would this be helpful information to a manager looking for ways to improve the overall customer satisfaction on Delta flights? Explain.

Allowing survey respondents to explain their 5-point scale responses would provide helpful information to managers looking for ways to improve customer satisfaction on Delta flights. The % respondents indicating that the flight failed to meet expectations would have the opportunity to provide detailed information about their expectations.


Consider a sample with a mean of 40 and a standard deviation of 5. Use Chebyshev's theorem to determine the percentage of the data within each of the following ranges (to the nearest whole number).
  1. 20 to 60, at least %
  2. 25 to 55, at least %
  3. 31 to 49, at least %
  4. 28 to 52, at least %
  5. 22 to 58, at least %

In an article about investment alternatives, Money magazine reported that drug stocks provide a potential for long-term growth, with over 55% of the adult population of the United States taking prescription drugs on a regular basis. For adults age 65 and older, 83% take prescription drugs regularly. For adults age 18 to 64, 47% take prescription drugs regularly. The age 18–64 age group accounts for 87.4% of the adult population (Statistical Abstract of the United States, 2008).

Round your answers to 4 decimal places.

a. What is the probability that a randomly selected adult is 65 or older?

b. Given an adult takes prescription drugs regularly, what is the probability that the adult is 65 or older?


The prior probabilities for events A1 and A2 are P(A1) = .50 and P(A2) = .50. It is also known that P(A1 A2) = 0. Suppose P(B | A1) = .20 and P(B | A2) = .08.
  1. Are events A1 and A2 mutually exclusive?
  2. Compute P(A1 B) (to 4 decimals).


    Compute P(A2 B) (to 4 decimals).

  3. Compute P(B) (to 4 decimals).

  4. Apply Bayes' theorem to compute P(A1 | B) (to 4 decimals).


    Also apply Bayes' theorem to compute P(A2 | B) (to 4 decimals).

Three students scheduled interviews for summer employment at an Institute. In each case the interview results in either an offer for a position or no offer. Experimental outcomes are defined in terms of the results of the three interviews.

The budgeting process for a midwestern college resulted in expense forecasts for the coming year (in $ millions) of $9, $10, $11, $12, and $13. Because the actual expenses are unknown, the following respective probabilities are assigned: 0.29, 0.2, 0.21, 0.11, and 0.19.

The grade point average for college students is based on a weighted mean computation. For most colleges, the grades are given the following data values: A (4), B (3), C (2), D (1), and F (0). After 60 credit hours of course work, a student at State University earned 9 credit hours of A, 14 credit hours of B, 32 credit hours of C, and 5 credit hours of D.

a. Compute the student's grade point average. Round your answer to two decimal places.

b. Students at State University must maintain a 2.5 grade point average for their first 60 credit hours of course work in order to be admitted to the business college. Will this student be admitted?


Simple random sampling uses a sample of size n from a population of size N to obtain data that can be used to make inferences about the characteristics of a population. Suppose that, from a population of 95 bank accounts, we want to take a random sample of six accounts in order to learn about the population. How many different random samples of six accounts are possible?
