Week Five Assignment. Following completion of your readings, answer the following two questions from “Chapter 12 Supplement” of Mathematics in Our World.

  1. Select one even problem from exercises 1 through 10 on page 810.
  2. Select one even problem from exercises 11 through 22 on pages 811-812.

As you answer the questions above, identify what types of misrepresentation or misuse have been demonstrated by referring to the bold headings in the “Chapter 12 Supplement” (e.g., Suspect Samples, Asking Biased Questions, Misleading Graphs, etc.). The assignment will include introduction and conclusion paragraphs.

  1. Your introduction should include three to five sentences of general information about the topic at hand.
  2. The body must contain a restatement of the problem with the identification and description of the types of misrepresentation or misuse demonstrated in the problem.
  3. Your conclusion must comprise a summary of the problems and the reason you selected a particular method to solve them. It would also be appropriate to include a statement as to what you learned and how you will apply the knowledge gained in this exercise to real-world situations.

Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course.

Week Four Discussion 2. This Discussion allows you to demonstrate your understanding of the similarities and differences between classical probability and empirical probability.

  1. In your own words, describe two main differences between classical and empirical probabilities.
  2. Gather coins you find around your home or in your pocket or purse. You will need an even number of coins (any denomination) between 16 and 30. You do not need more than that. Put all of the coins in a small bag or container big enough to allow the coins to be shaken around. Shake the bag well and empty the coins onto a table. Tally up how many heads and tails are showing. Do ten repetitions of this experiment, and record your findings every time.
  • State how many coins you have and present your data in a table or chart.
  • Consider just your first count of the tossed coins. What is the observed probability of tossing a head? Of tossing a tail? Show the formula you used and reduce the answer to lowest terms.
  • Did any of your ten repetitions come out to have exactly the same number of heads and tails? How many times did this happen?
  • How come the answers to the step above are not exactly ½ and ½?
  • What kind of probability are you using in this “bag of coins” experiment?
  • Compute the average number of heads from the ten trials (add up the number of heads and divide it by 10).
  • Change this to the average probability of tossing heads by putting the average number of heads in a fraction over the number of coins you used in your tosses.
  • Did anything surprising or unexpected happen in your results for this experiment?
  1. Write the sample space for the outcomes of tossing three coins using H for heads and T for tails.
  • What is the probability for each of the outcomes?
  • Which kind of probability are we using here?
  • How come we do not need to have three actual coins to compute the probabilities for these outcomes?
  1. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. Make sure you review their data and calculations and let them know if their probabilities seem accurate.

Your initial post should be at least 150-200 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.

Week Four Discussion 1. The purpose of this Discussion is to analyze a financial plan that portrays a somewhat typical budgeting scheme. You will calculate expenses, a mortgage payment, and the effects of interest and financing on your budget. Show your math work for every answer and identify the answers with words.

  1. Select the first three letters of your last name. Each letter has a numerical place value in the alphabet. For example, D is 4, L is 12, and Z is 26. Add the three place values together. For example, Wallace would yield WAL, which is 23+1+12 = 36.
  2. Multiply your sum by 1500. This is your yearly income for Week Four Discussion 1.
  3. Please use the following monthly expenses: Car payment = $283.15, Car insurance = $72, Utilities (includes water and power) = $242.77, Internet = $32, and Cell Phone = $79.95.
  4. You also have a yearly educational bill of $7980 which includes textbooks and classes.
  5. Calculate your monthly income.
  6. What percent of your monthly income is the car payment?
  7. Subtract the sum of your monthly expenses. Use this value to calculate what percent of your income is now available to spend for food, clothing, and your rent or mortgage.
  8. Use the plan at the bottom of page 538, “Mathematics in Our World Revisited,” to calculate the monthly mortgage payment established by your monthly income.
  9. Assume you can afford a down payment equal to 25% of your yearly income. What is the total purchase price can you afford for a home? Would this amount allow you to purchase a home in the area where you live?
  10. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. Make sure you review their calculations and let them know if their income seems sufficient to cover their monthly expenses.

Your initial post should be at least 150-200 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references
