Question

If the prevalence of prehypertension in the US population is 30%, calculate the cumulative probability of having up to and including 5 people with prehypertension out of a random sample of 10 people.

Answer #1

Percentage of people having prehypertension in the US population = p = 30% = 0.3

Sample size = n = 10

cumulative probability of having up to and including 5 people prehypertension. So if x is the number of people having hypertension out of 10. Then, x ~ BINOMIAL(n = 10, p = 0.3)

P(x 5) = BINOMDIST(x 5; 10 ; 0.3)

Looking the value of probability in the binomial distribution table.

P(x 5) =
**0.9527**

If the prevalence of prehypertension in the US population is
30%, calculate the cumulative probability of having up to and
including 5 people with prehypertension out of a random sample of
10 people. display binomial(10,5,.3) .95265101
17) Is the proportion of prehypertension in this sample
significantly different from the national estimate in #16? (4pt
htp) what test would i use for this. and how would i use the
previous answer in that test? The data for the sample is in...

5. In medical tests the prevalence of a disease in a given
population is the percentage of the population that has the
disease. For a population with a known prevalence, the positive
predictive value (PPV) of a test is the probability that a person
in the population that tests positive actually has the disease. The
negative predictive value (NPV) of a test is the probability that a
person in the population who tests negative, in fact, does not have
the...

Problem 4: Distinguishing between Point and Period
Prevalence, Cumulative Incidence and Incidence Density at Happy
Kids Day Care Center (11 points)
There were 11 children enrolled in the Happy Kids Day Care
Center from the beginning of Month One until the end of Month Four.
The 11 children were watched for a total of 4 months. The staff

The prevalence of a disease D among the population is 3%. There
is a diagnostic test for disease D. The sensitivity of this test is
99%, this means that the test is positive given that the person has
the disease. The specificity of this test is 98%, this means that
the test is negative given that the person does not have the
disease.
a) Given that a person tests positive, what is the probability
that the person does not have...

In the 2010 US Census, we learn that of all people in the US are
65 years old or older. If we take a random sample of 14 people,
what is the probability that 4 of them are 65 or older? What is the
probability that 5 of them are 65 or older?
Round your answers to three decimal places.

Assume that out of a population of 1,000, the probability of
having a certain disease is 1%. The screening for the disease has a
sensitivity of 80% and a specificity of 80%. Using Bayes' theorem,
206 people will test positive for the disease, and, of this number,
actually do not have the disease.

In a certain population 20% are heavy smokers, 30% are light
smokers, and 50% do not smoke at all. In addition, in this
population the probability of having high blood pressure is 0.35.
The probability of having low blood pressure given that a person
does not smoke is 0.8. The probability of having low blood pressure
given that the person is a light smoker is 0.75.
a) What is the probability of having high blood pressure given
that a person...

Assuming that among people in US 30% of people watch news on TV
and 10% watch movies. A random sample of 500 viewers in the Tampa
area, revealed that 165 people watched news, 140 watched movies and
the rest watched other programs. At the 0.05 significance level,
can we conclude that the distribution of number of people in Tampa
watching various programs is different from the distribution in the
U.S.?
Please show calculations on paper. Thank you.
