I really want it to count so that fewer people pass and those of us that do become more valuable. To be fair, had I gotton it wrong, I would be on your side completely.
I suspect what happened was: The author, having looked over the material in Simulation, submitted the question with p=.3. The committee (or someone on it) changed it to the "equivalent" B=7/3, not knowing that one distribution starts at k=0 while the other starts at k=1. Another way to look at it all is to say that, since B was given, the correct solution would be given by: INT[ Ln( 1  12/25) / LN( 1/(1+1/B) )] + 1

40 absolutely should be considered defective. The tables that they provided us yeilded an answer of 1 which was not an option.

RE: question 39
Maybe some one can help me out here... How is it rational for to set up your accept/reject in an order other than 15 or 51? I had assumed that you were asked the following questions: which is more efficient, u=F(x) or u=S(x)? Is there some reason why this logic is incorrect? If it is correct, wouldn't the correct answer be B?
