Question

Suppose that a new treatment is successful in curing a common ailment 71% of the time. If the treatment is tried on a random sample of 140 patients, approximate the probability that at least 101 will be cured. Use the normal approximation to the binomial with a correction for continuity. Round your answer to at least three decimal places. Do not round any intermediate steps.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

p = 0.71

q = 1 - p =1 - 0.71=0.29

n = 140

Using binomial distribution,

= n * p = 140 *0.71=99.4

= n * p * q = 140*0.71*0.29=5.3690

Using continuity correction ,

P(x > 100.5) = 1 - P(x <10.5 )

= 1 - P((x - ) / < (100.5 - 99.4) / 5.3690)

= 1 - P(z <0.20 )

= 1 -0.5793

=0.4207

answer =0.421

Suppose that a new treatment is successful in curing a common
ailment
60%
of the time. If the treatment is tried on a random sample of
55
patients, approximate the probability that at most
31
will be cured. Use the normal approximation to the binomial with
a correction for continuity.
Round your answer to at least three decimal places. Do not round
any intermediate steps.
(If necessary, consult a list of formulas.)

2.A researcher believes that about 70% of the seeds planted with
the aid of a new chemical fertilizer will germinate. He chooses a
random sample of 140 seeds and plants them with the aid of the
fertilizer. Assuming his belief to be true, approximate the
probability that more than 97 of the 140 seeds will germinate. Use
the normal approximation to the binomial with a correction for
continuity.

Suppose that 45 % of the population of U.S. voters favors a
particular presidential candidate. If a random sample of 75 voters
is chosen, approximate the probability that more than 35 favor this
candidate. Use the normal approximation to the binomial with a
correction for continuity. Round your answer to at least three
decimal places. Do not round any intermediate steps. (If necessary,

Suppose a new cancer treatment has a 20% chance of curing a
patient.
a) For 5 cancer patients, what is the probability that: i) none
will be cured?
ii) exactly 2 patients will be cured?
iii) at least 2 patients will be cured?
b) For 500 patients,
i) how many would you expect to be cured by the treatment?
ii) what is the probability that more than 75 of the patients are
cured?

A manufacturing process produces semiconductor chips with a
known failure rate of 7.5%. If a random sample of 280 chips is
selected, approximate the probability that at most 19 will be
defective. Use the normal approximation to the binomial with a
correction for continuity. Round your answer to at least three
decimal places. Do not round any intermediate steps.

A brokerage survey reports that 27% of all individual investors
have used a discount broker (one that does not charge the full
commission). If a random sample of 70 individual investors is
taken, approximate the probability that fewer than 21 have used a
discount broker. Use the normal approximation to the binomial with
a correction for continuity.

A researcher believes that about 74% of the seeds planted with
the aid of a new chemical fertilizer will germinate. He chooses a
random sample 135 of seeds and plants them with the aid of the
fertilizer. Assuming his belief to be true, approximate the
probability that at least 102 of the 135 seeds will germinate. Use
the normal approximation to the binomial with a correction for
continuity.

A certain tennis player makes a successful first serve 71% of
the time. Suppose the tennis player serves 110 times in a match.
What's the probability that she makes at least 89 first serves? The
probability she makes at least 89 first serves is . ? (Use the
answers from part a to find this answer. Round to four decimal
places as needed.)
