Tue, 24 May 2016 17:27:34 +0000http://roughlynormal.com/?p=150625#comment-10852in 4b you desire a failure in the 31st or 32nd launch. Another way to think of this is you don’t want two successful launches. Thus 1 – .85^2 = 0.2775. You have ignored the case of two failures which would still satisfy the requirement of first failure on 31st or 32nd launch.

Thu, 19 May 2016 17:25:46 +0000http://roughlynormal.com/?p=150625#comment-10846There’s a typo in question 4b. 0.15 + (0.85)(0.15) instead of (0.85)(0.15)+(0.85)(0.15). You have the same answer I do so I’m pretty sure yours is a typo.

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:41:20 +0000http://roughlynormal.com/?p=149820#comment-9533I agree with your answers. With regard to number 6, I thought perhaps one could estimate the daily standard deviation for method 1 through the histogram with the values given at bottom of the graph. Given the daily standard deviation off all (.11) and thus resulting variance, then one could solve for the standard deviation of method 2 by working with the sum of variances (given my approximation from the histogram) and solving the resulting equation. Repeating the process, and assuming the standard deviation for both the 5.9 day and 6.1 day would be the same, then one could come up with the standard deviation for each. It gave mathematical verification to my answers which agreed with your analysis. Simple idea from an algebra teacher who somehow got stuck teaching AP Stat.

Mon, 18 May 2015 19:32:26 +0000http://roughlynormal.com/?p=149803#comment-9528Thanks for the work you have put into this and making this space for discussion! Great for a first year teacher like me. I don’t mean to nit pick, but in 1a, I think the outliers should be described as “5-year employees” instead of “entry level employees” to convey an understanding between the 2009 and 2014 contexts of this problem.
