FINAL PREPARATION

Good Morning:

Today, you’ll do a quick ten question warm-up to practice for the final on bivariate discrete probabilities (table proportions). Here’s the practice test.   Just record your answers on a sheet of paper and compare with the neighbor.  We will review in class on Monday morning.  Remember answers should be left as unreduced fractions.  If you need to review our past instruction go to Section #5 below.
