Question

A news company reported that 8% of adult Americans have a food allergy. Consider selecting 15 adult Americans at random. Define the random variable x as x = number of people in the sample of 15 that have a food allergy. Find the following probabilities. (Round your answers to three decimal places.)

(a)P(x < 2)

(b)P(x ≤ 2)

(c)P(x ≥ 3)

(d)P(1 ≤ x ≤ 2)

Answer #1

Ask Your Teacher NBC News reported on May 2, 2013, that 1 in 20
children in the United States have a food allergy of some sort.
Consider selecting a random sample of 15 children and let X be the
number in the sample who have a food allergy. Then X ~ Bin(15,
0.05). (Round your probabilities to three decimal places.)
(a) Determine both P(X ≤ 2) and P(X < 2). P(X ≤ 2) = P(X <
2) =
(b) Determine...

In a survey on supernatural experiences, 724 of 4003 adult
Americans surveyed reported that they had seen or been with a
ghost.
(a) What assumption must be made in order for it to be
appropriate to use the formula of this section to construct a
confidence interval to estimate the proportion of all adult
Americans who have seen or been with a ghost?
We need to assume that there are only 724 adult Americans.We
need to assume that the 4003...

A telephone poll of 1000 adult Americans was reported in an
issue of a magazine. One of the questions asked was "[How much are]
you worried about the quality of education in our schools?" Suppose
64% responded "a lot". We are interested in the population
proportion of adult Americans who are worried a lot about the
quality of education in our schools.
Which distribution should you use for this problem? (Round your
answers to three decimal places.)
P' ~ N...

Consider the experiment of randomly selecting an adult American.
Let A be the event that a person has the disease and let B be the
event that a person tests positive for the disease.
(a) There are three probabilities given above. Give each of them
in terms of the events A and B.
(b) In terms of the events A and B, what probability is it that
we wish to compute? Give the correct “formula” for computing that
probability
(c)...
