What is the empirical probability that an engineer lives:-

(i) less than 7 km from her place of work?What is the empirical probability that an engineer lives:

(ii) more than or equal to 7 km from her place of work?

(iii) within 1/2 km from her place of work?

Solution

(i) Total number of engineers = 40

Number of engineers living less than 7 km from their place of work = 9

Hence, required probability that an engineer lives less than 7 km from her place of work, P = 9/40

 

(ii) Number of engineers living more than or equal to 7 km from their place of work = 40 − 9 = 31

Hence, required probability that an engineer lives more than or equal to 7 km from her place of work, P = 31/40

 

(iii) Number of engineers living within 1/2 km from her place of work = 0

Hence, required probability that an engineer lives within 1/2 km from her place of work, P = 0

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
