Question

In studies for a medication, 12 percent of patients gained weight as a side effect. Suppose 492 patients are randomly selected. Use the normal approximation to the binomial to approximate the probability that (a) exactly 49 patients will gain weight as a side effect. (b) 49 or fewer patients will gain weight as a side effect. (c) 76 or more patients will gain weight as a side effect. (d) between 49 and 75, inclusive, will gain weight as a side effect. (a) P(Xequals49)equals nothing (Round to four decimal places as needed) (b) P(Xless than or equals49)equals nothing (Round to four decimal places as needed) (c) P(Xgreater than or equals76)equals nothing (Round to four decimal places as needed) (d) P(49less than or equalsXless than or equals75)equals nothing (Round to four decimal places as needed)
