Deterministic techniques assume that no uncertain exists in model parameters. A: True
An inspector correctly identifies 90% of the time. For the next 10 products, the probability that he makes fewer than 2 incorrect inspections is .736. A: Use Binomial table to discover , add 3 probabilities for 0,1,2 A continuous random variable may assume only integer values within a given interval. A: False

A decision tree is a diagram consisting of circles decision nodes, square probability nodes and branches. A: False
