Question 1 of 40
2.5/ 2.5 Points
Joe dealt 20 cards from a standard 52-card deck, and the
number of red cards exceeded the number of black cards by 8. He reshuffled the
cards and dealt 30 cards. This time, the number of red cards exceeded the
number of black cards by 10. Determine which deal is closer to the 50/50 ratio
of red/black expected of fairly dealt hands from a fair deck and why.
A. The first series
is closer because 1/10 is farther from 1/2 than is 1/8.
B. The series closer
to the theoretical 50/50 cannot be determined unless the number of red and
black cards for each deal is given.
C. The second series
is closer because 20/30 is closer to 1/2 than is 14/20.
D. The first series
is closer because the difference between red and black is smaller than the
difference in the second series.
