ProbabilityCasey is looking to rent a two-bedroom apartment in one of two towns, Gardiner or Augusta. He randomly selects 100 two- bedroom apartments from both towns and records the area of each apartment. Both towns have a two-bedroom apartment that has an area of 645 square feet.
Based on the z-scores you calculated above, which of the two towns is more likely to have a two-bedroom apartment with 645 square feet?
Select the correct answer below:
The absolute value of the z-score for the apartment in Gardiner is greater than for the apartment in Augusta, so the apartment in Gardiner having an area of 645 square feet is more likely.
The absolute value of the z-score for the apartment in Gardiner is less than for the apartment in Augusta, so the apartment in Gardiner having an area of 645 square feet is more likely.
The absolute value of the z-score for the apartment in Augusta is greater than for the apartment in Gardiner, so the apartment in Augusta having an area of 645 square feet is more likely.
The absolute value of the z-score for the apartment in Augusta is less than for the apartment in Gardiner, so the apartment in Augusta having an area of 645 square feet is more likely.

ProbabilityConsider the following binomial distribution scenario.
A softball pitcher has a 0.675 probability of throwing a strike for each pitch and a 0.325 probability of throwing a ball. If the softball pitcher throws 29 pitches, we want to know the probability that exactly 19 of them are strikes. Consider strikes as
successes in the binomial distribution.
