Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.

In February 2002 the Argentine peso lost 70% of its value compared to the United States dollar. This devaluation drastically raised the price of imported products. According to a survey conducted by AC Nielsen in April 2002, 68% of the consumers in Argentina were buying fewer products than before the devaluation, 24% were buying the same number of products, and 8% were buying more products. Furthermore, in a trend toward purchasing less-expensive brands, 88% indicated that they had changed the brands they purchased. Suppose the following complete set of results were reported. Use the following data to answer this question. 
 
 
Number of Products Purchased
 
Brands Purchased
Fewer

An ice cream vendor sells three flavors: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Forty five percent of the sales are chocolate, while 30% are strawberry, with the rest vanilla flavored. Sales are by the cone or the cup. The percentages of cones sales for chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, are 75%, 60%, and 40%, respectively. For a randomly selected sale, define the following events:

f$A_{1}f$  = chocolate chosen
f$A_{2}f$  = strawberry chosen
f$A_{3}f$  = vanilla chosen
f$Bf$  = ice cream on a cone
f$ar{B}=f$ ice cream in a cup

Question 2 of 25
1.0 Points
The staff at a small company includes: 4 secretaries, 20 technicians, 4 engineers, 2 executives, and 50 factory workers. If a person is selected at random, what is the probability that he or she is a factory worker?
 A.1/4   
 B.1/8   
 C.2/5   
 D.5/8   Reset Selection

Total employees:

=4+20+4+2+50
=80

There are 50 factory workers out of 80 employees, therefore:

Probability of it being a factory worker = 50/80
Probability of it being a factory worker = .625

Probability of it being a factory worker = 62.5% (5/8)
