#### Transcript of Calculating Expectation

Calculating Expectation
Starter
In a bag there are red and blue counters. The probability of selecting a red counter from the bag is 4 .
5

(a) If the bag contains 5 counters, how many are red?

(b) If the bag contains 10 counters, how many are red?

(c) If the bag contains 100 counters, how many are red?

(d) If there are 75 counters in the bag, how many are red?
Calculating Expectation
In a bag there are red and blue counters. The probability of selecting a red counter from the bag is 4
5

(a) If the bag has 85 counters in how many are red?

(b) If the bag has 130 counters in how many are red?
Example
For a particular set of traffic lights, the probability of encountering a red light is 0.3.

If 14760 cars pass the set of lights in a week, how many cars would you expect to have to stop at the red light?
L.O. - To use a probability to calculate the expected number of a particular result.
Main Activity
Complete the Red, Amber, Green Activity sheet.
Red - (1) 0.02 x 30000 = 600 toast
(2) 0.8 x 240 = 192 drawing pins
(3) 0.7 x 120000 = 84000 plants
Amber - (4) x 1300 = 52 planes delayed.
(5) (a) x 240 = 40 times.
(b) x 240 = 120 times.
(c) x 240 = 160 times
(d) x 240 = 80 times
Green - (6) (a) 0.111
(b) Cumulus - 110, Stratocumulus - 91
Stratus - 54, Altocumulus - 40, Cirrus - 18
Cirrocumulus - 7, Nimbostratus - 2
Cumulonimbus - 1
