Please respond toEITHER of the following discussion topics and submit it to the discussion forum as a single post. Your initial post should be a minimum of 150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. Each reply should be 75-100 words. If you have not done so lately, please review the Rules of Discussion.
Review the following statements and choose the one that best describes your feelings. Support the statement you choose by providing at least three reasons for your point of view.
- In an effort to feed a population of over 7 billion, people in developed countries should reduce the amount of meat they consume.
- Science and technology will ensure that food production and energy supplies keep up with the demands of a growing population.
- Arable land should never be used for housing, businesses, or other non-agricultural uses – only for growing crops because we need all available, farmable land to produce food.
- The Earth can support over 7 billion people now and will be able to support any number of humans in the future.
- Governments in countries with fast-growing populations should make laws to limit the number of children that couples can have.
The population is projected to reach 11 billion by 2100. Predict what will happen if we continue to grow at the current rate. Propose problems that would be caused by a larger population. Suggest some benefits of having more people.
Ethics in the Workplace
- Identify and discuss the importance of ethics in the workplace.
- What do you think the business world would be like without them? Why?
The Normal Probability Distribution
In §6.2 we are introduced to the Normal Probability Distribution and the special case of the Normal Probability Distribution, the Standard Normal Probability Distribution, which is a Normal Probability Distribution with mean (u) zero and variance (σ2) one.
One way to find probabilities from a Standard Normal Distribution is to use probability tables, which are located inside the front cover of your textbook.
- According to the table, what is the probability when z ≤ -1.75? The probability when z ≤ 1.75?
- What properties of probability distributions and specifically the Normal Probability Distribution do you notice from the two probabilities that you have found in the table?
