Ashford MAT 126 Week 4


Ashford MAT 126 Week Four Discussion 1

The purpose of this Discussion is to analyze a financial plan that portrays a somewhat typical budgeting scheme. You will calculate expenses, a mortgage payment, and the effects of interest and financing on your budget. Show your math work for every answer and identify the answers with words.

  1. Select the first three letters of your last name. Each letter has a numerical place value in the alphabet. For example, D is 4, L is 12, and Z is 26. Add the three place values together. For example, Wallace would yield WAL, which is 23+1+12 = 36.  
  2. Multiply your sum by 1500. This is your yearly income for Week Four Discussion 1.  
  3. Please use the following monthly expenses: Car payment = $283.15, Car insurance = $72, Utilities (includes water and power) = $242.77, Internet = $32, and Cell Phone = $79.95.
  4. You also have a yearly educational bill of $7980 which includes textbooks and classes.
  5. Calculate your monthly income.  
  6. What percent of your monthly income is the car payment?

Ashford MAT 126 Week Four Discussion 2

This Discussion allows you to demonstrate your understanding of the similarities and differences between classical probability and empirical probability.

  1. In your own words, describe two main differences between classical and empirical probabilities.
  2. Gather coins you find around your home or in your pocket or purse. You will need an even number of coins (any denomination) between 16 and 30. You do not need more than that. Put all of the coins in a small bag or container big enough to allow the coins to be shaken around. Shake the bag well and empty the coins onto a table. Tally up how many heads and tails are showing. Do ten repetitions of this experiment, and record your findings every time.
  • State how many coins you have and present your data in a table or chart.
  • Consider just your first count of the tossed coins. What is the observed probability of tossing a head? Of tossing a tail? Show the formula you used and reduce the answer to lowest terms.
  • Did any of your ten repetitions come out to have exactly the same number of heads and tails?  How many times did this happen?
  • How come the answers to the step above are not exactly ½ and ½?
  • What kind of probability are you using in this “bag of coins” experiment?
  • Compute the average number of heads from the ten trials (add up the number of heads and divide it by 10).
  • Change this to the average probability of tossing heads by putting the average number of heads in a fraction over the number of coins you used in your tosses.
  • Did anything surprising or unexpected happen in your results for this experiment?

I wish the writer would have picked a more natural topic. Although the work is good, it is obvious that the writer of the material is African American. The fact that I am not African American raises questions.
