Question

The probability of getting flu after receiving the flu shot is
15%. Suppose that 8 people receive flu shots in our
department.

a. What is the probability that exactly 5 of them gets flu?
(2.5 points)

b. What is the probability that at least one person gets flu?
(2.5 points)

Answer #1

**PLEASE RATE THE
ANSWER**

Answer

Probability of getting a flue is 0.15 ( EVENT A)

Probability of not getting a fluw fter shot is (1-0.15 ) = 0.85
(EVENT B)

**a. What is the probability that exactly 5 of
them gets flu?**

= probability of 5 getting a flue * probability of 3 not getting
the flue

= A^{5} B^{3}

= 0.15^{5} * 0.85^{3}

**b. What is the probability that at least one person gets
flu?**

= 1 - ( probability that no one gets the flu)

= 1 - B^{8}

= 1- 0.85^{8}

= 1-.272490

= 0.7275

= 72.75 %

The probability of flu symptoms for a person not receiving any
treatment is 0.053 In a clinical trial of a common drug used to
lower cholesterol, 68 of 1189 people treated experienced flu
symptoms. Assuming the drug has no effect on the likelihood of flu
symptoms, estimate the probability that at least 68 people
experience flu symptoms. What do these results suggest about flu
symptoms as an adverse reaction to the drug?

The probability of flu symptoms for a person not receiving any
treatment is 0.03. In a clinical trial of a common drug used to
lower cholesterol, 37 of 1143 people treated experienced flu
symptoms. Assuming the drug has no effect on the likelihood of flu
symptoms, estimate the probability that at least 37 people
experience flu symptoms. What do these results suggest about flu
symptoms as an adverse reaction to the drug?

The probability of flu symptoms for a person not receiving any
treatment is 0.037. In a clinical trial of a common drug used to
lower cholesterol, 39 of 983 people treated experienced flu
symptoms. Assuming the drug has no effect on the likelihood of flu
symptoms, estimate the probability that at least 39 people
experience flu symptoms. What do these results suggest about flu
symptoms as an adverse reaction to the drug?

The probability of flu symptoms for a person not receiving any
treatment is 0.059. In a clinical trial of a common drug used to
lower cholesterol, 51 of 814 people treated experienced flu
symptoms. Assuming the drug has no effect on the likelihood of flu
symptoms, estimate the probability that at least 51 people
experience flu symptoms. What do these results suggest about flu
symptoms as an adverse reaction to the drug? (a) P(Xgreater than
or equals51)equals nothing (Round to...

9. The probability of flu symptoms for a person not receiving
any treatment is 0.036. In a clinical trial of a common drug used
to lower cholesterol, 42 of 1089 people treated experienced flu
symptoms. Assuming the drug has no effect on the likelihood of
flusymptoms, estimate the probability that at least 42 people
experience flu symptoms. What do these results suggest about flu
symptoms as an adverse reaction to the drug?
A. P(X≥4242) =

Mara gets a free flu shot from her campus clinic. As a result,
she and her roommates avoid the flu all season. Which statement is
true?
Question 6 options:
a)
The externality is created by producers
for producers
b)
Flu shots create an external cost.
c)
If flu shots were not free, the number of
people getting them would be larger than what is socially
optimal.
d)
The externality generated by flu shots is
more similar to that provided by...

Suppose you have 15 identical dollar bills to give to your friends
Adam, Beth and Charlie. You give all 15 dollar bills away by
randomly selecting a person for each dollar. Each person is equally
likely to recieve a dollar for each dollar. (a) What is the
probability that Adam gets exactly 4 dollars? (b) If you know that
each person recieved at least one dollar, what is the probability
that Adam gets exactly 4 dollars? (c) What is the...

Suppose the probability that a person has type O- blood is 0.05.
Consider a group of 200 people.
a. What is the probability that exactly 3 people of the people
in the group have type O- blood? (3 points)
b. Show that this binomial distribution satisfies both
conditions needed to use the normal approxi- mation to the
binomial. (2 points)
c. Using the normal approximation to the binomial, find the
probability that at least 13 people in the group have...

In the previous problem, we assumed the distance of the
shot from the center was uniformly distributed. As an alternative
to the previous problem, now suppose that the shot itself is
uniformly distributed in a disk of radius R centered on the
target.
The previous problem states: "Consider a person
shooting at a target. The score for a given shot will depend on the
distance from the target that it hits. We award a score of 10
points if the...
