Historically, fivestar recruits get full football scholarships 93% of the time. If this pattern holds true for this year’s recruiting class, answer the following:

Based on these numbers, what is the probability that a randomly selected fivestar recruit who chooses one of the best three conferences will be offered a full football scholarship? b. What are the odds a randomly selected fivestar recruit will not select a university from one of the three best conferences? Explain. c. Explain whether these are independent or dependent events.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I know the answe to b and c but I have no idea for a. Here are my answers so far: a) b) The odds against a fivestar football recruit going to a university from one of the three best conferences is 1:3, because since they have a 3/4 probability of going to one, there is 1 to 3 odds against c) This is an inclusive event because a fivestar football player could go to one of the universities in the three most athletic conferences and have a full football scholarship at the same time. It is also a dependent event, because if you don't go to a university or college, then you can't get a scholarship. @perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for part a) , lets do it this way. Let A = five start recruit goes to university in one of three most competitive athletic conferences B = five star recruit gets full football scholarship we want to know P( A & B ) P(A & B ) = P( A ) * P(B) = .75 * .93

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i presume that a 5 star college football recruit has his choice of college . the five star means he has the highest rating

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, so does that mean that this is an independent event? I thought this was a dependent event, because you can't get a scholarship if you don't go to a college

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i see what youre saying, but i dont see any other way to solve this , but by treating the events as independent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My course says that to find the probability of a dependent event is: P( A and B) = P(A) * (B following A). But I don't know how to find the "B following A" part

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have to understand that all the athletic colleges know about the five star recruits, they are nationally known. so they offer scholarships to these high school students, even if they don't commit to going to college.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1these athletes are highest ranked in the country, so they get to choose which athletic college they want to go to. And colleges preoffer scholarships to the five star recruit athletes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohhhh that makes a lot more sense, so in that case, this is an independent event right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are independent , because all the athletic colleges are willing to offer these five star recruits scholarships , regardless of where the athlete makes his final pick. of course the college cannot read his mind before he makes his pick.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of a scholarship as a way of a college saying, come to *my* school.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, wouldn't the probability be higher, since in the original question a says that the football recruit will for sure be going to a college

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are asking about the probability of going to a university in the three most competitive athletic conference and being offered a full scholarship .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you are talking about a select few colleges or a subset of colleges, the three most competitive atheletic conference college (whatever that means)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that article i posted gives you an example of an early scholarship offer `The 6foot10 prospect from Austin is considered by Scout.com to be the No. 15 overall prospect in the class of 2016. Kansas, Texas and Baylor also have extended early scholarship offers.` http://ukrecruiting.bloginky.com/2015/05/19/caliparioffersscholarshiptoanotherfivestarrecruit/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.175% of five star recruits end up going to the three most athletic conference college. and 93% of five star recruits get a full scholarship, regardless of the athletic college they go to (whether its in the three most athletic conference or not).
