Q:

The probability of occurring an event is 0.45. Find the probability of not occurring the event.

A) 0.5 B) 0.45
C) 0.55 D) 0.1
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 0.55

Explanation: The probability of occurring an event be P(E) = 0.45
The probability of not occurring the event = P(E)
P(E) + P(E) = 1
0.45 + P(E) = 1
P(E) = 0.55

Q:

What is the formula for the median of Grouped data?

A) Median = L + [(n / 2 – cf) / f] * h B) Median = L + [(n / 2 + cf) / f] * h
C) Median = L + [(n / 2 – cf) / f] + h D) Median = L * [(n / 2 – cf) / f] * h
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Median = L + [(n / 2 – cf) / f] * h

Explanation: Formula for the Median of Grouped Data
Median = L + [(n / 2 – c.f) / f] * h
L = Lower limit of Median Class
cf = Cumulative frequency of the class prior to median class
f = Frequency of Median Class
h = Class size
n = Total frequency
