Question 1 of 40 5.0/ 5.0 Points In the first series of rolls of a die, the number of odd numbers exceeded the number of even numbers by 5. In the second series of rolls of the same die, the number of odd numbers exceeded the number of even numbers by 11. Determine which series is closer to the 50/50 ratio of odd/even expected of a fairly rolled die. A. The second series is closer because the difference between odd and even numbers is greater than the difference for the first series. B. The first series is closer because the difference between odd and even numbers is less than the difference for the second series. C. Since 1/2 > 1/5 > 1/11, the first series is closer. D. The series closer to the theoretical 50/50 cannot be determined unless the total number of rolls for both series is given. |

The probability that the difference occurred due to chance is less than 0.05. B. The probability of getting an A is 10% and only 9% got an A in this study. The difference is less than 5% so it is not significant. C. There is not enough information to make any conclusion. D. The probability that the difference occurred due to chance is more than 0.05. |
