 Probability-and-statistics/329423: The probability that a cruise missile hits target on any particular mission is .80. Four cruise missiles are sent after the same target. What is the probability: A. They all hit the target? B. None hit the target? C. At least one hits the target? 1 solutions Answer 236124 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-08-06 10:58:15 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A) . . B) . . C)"At least one hits the target" is the same as saying "not all missed". P(all missed)+P(not all missed)= P(not all missed)=-P(all missed) P(not all missed)= P(at least one)=
 Probability-and-statistics/329228: How do you formulate a numerical hypothesis from this statement?....Sleep deprivation has negative physical and mental affects on the body. 1 solutions Answer 236121 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-08-06 10:53:52 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You would have to generate a hypothesis using some study that you propose. As an example, patients who have less than 4 hours of sleep per night performed significantly worse on the 10 question quiz and obstacle course than those that had more than 4 hours of sleep per night. In other words, define what you mean by sleep deprivation and then describe how you'll measure what "negative physical and mental affects on the body"
 Miscellaneous_Word_Problems/329421: A plane travels at 120 mph in still air. It is headed due south in a wind of 30 mph from the northeast. What is the resultant velocity of the plane? Find the magnitude and the drift angle. The drift angle is the angle between the intended line of flight and the true line of flight.1 solutions Answer 236120 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-08-06 10:49:57 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let's define a coordinate system where East is positive , North is positive . Without wind, the plane would travel with velocity (,). From the northeast to the southwest direction is degrees if the positive x axis is degrees. The wind velocity is (,)=(,) So the resultant velocity is (,)=(,). The magnitude of the resultant is mph The tangent of the angle of the resultant is, so then, degrees Since the plane should be traveling at due South ( degrees), the drift angle is degrees West of South
 Graphs/329419: Good Morning, How do you graph and label equations. This is concerning slope, and y=mx+b. I have Math packets that i can reference to but they dont teach how to label x and y in an equation(based on y=mx+b). Tahnk you1 solutions Answer 236118 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-08-06 10:39:17 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The x-axis is horizontal. The y-axis is vertical. Ordered pairs are presented in (x,y) format. Point (3,2) is here. Lines can be presented in slope intercept form, where is the slope and is the y-intercept. The y-intercept is where the line crosses the y-axis. As an example, here is the graph of which has a y-intercept of (0,1), . . . . . . You can graph an equation given the slope-intercept form in the following way. First plot the intercept, (0,b). Then use the slope to determine another point on the line. The slope describes the change in y divided by the change in x for each point on the line. As an example, let's graph Plot the point (0,-4) . . . . . . Next use the slope. THe slope of the equation is which means that for each 1 unit change in x, the change in y is 3 units since . So then start at the y-intercept (0,-4) and determine another point. x: y: Another point of the line would be (1,-1). You can double check by finding the slope using the two points, So then plot the point (1,-1). . . . . . . A straight line only needs two points to define it. Draw the straight line that includes the two points. . . . . . . So now you have the graph of .
