Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0210 of those 300 enter the class. 80% of the students that enter the class get good grades, 15% of the students that dont enter the class get good grades

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first you find how many students that arnt in the class and are getting gud grades so 90 x 15/100 = 27/2 feel sorry for the student that lost a limb :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.190 students are people that do not come to class, 15% of these students are students that do well in exams. therefore 90 x 15/100 = 27/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We know that 9 people that did not entered got good grades. We need to see the ones that did come in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but it should be 168 + 27/2 because the number of students that didnt come to class and are getting gud grades are 27/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 195/2 students pass and the probability of the teacher choosing one is 195/2 /300
