Isabel Briggs Myers was a pioneer in the study of personality types. The personality types are broadly defined according to four main preferences. Do married couples choose similar or different personality types in their mates?

In such a deck of cards there are four suits of 13 cards each. The four suits are: hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades. The 26 cards included in hearts and diamonds are red. The 26 cards included in clubs and spades are black. The 13 cards in each suit are: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. This means there are four Aces, four Kings, four Queens, four 10s, etc., down to four 2s in each deck.You draw two cards from a standard deck of 52 cards without replacing the first one before drawing the second.(a) Are the outcomes on the two cards independent? Why?No. The events cannot occur together.No. The probability of drawing a specific second card depends on the identity of the first card. Yes. The probability of drawing a specific second card is the same regardless of the identity of the first drawn card.Yes. The events can occur together.(b) Find P(ace on 1st card and queen on 2nd).

As the sample size increases, the relative frequency of outcomes gets closer to the theoretical probability of the outcome.As the sample size increases, the relative frequency of outcomes moves further from the theoretical probability of the outcome.If you were using the relative frequency of an event to estimate the probability of the event, would it be better to use 100 trials or 500 trials? Explain.It would be better to use 500 trials, because the law of large numbers would take effect.It would be better to use 100 trials, because the law of large numbers would take effect. It would be better to use 500 trials, because 100 trials is always too small.It would be better to use 100 trials, because 500 trials is always too big.12.-/6.25 pointsBBBasicStat8Acc 5.2.005.MI.Ask Your TeacherMy NotesquestionGiven P(A) = 0.4 and P(B) = 0.6, do the following.
