Question

According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 33% of U.S. births are Caesarean deliveries. Suppose seven expectant mothers are randomly selected. What is the probability that at most two of the expectant mothers will have a Caesarean delivery? 0.5783 0.2696 0.4217

Answer #1

Let , X be the number of mothers will have a Caesarean delivery.

Here , X ahs binomial distribtuion with parameter n=7 and p=0.33

Therefore , teh PMF of X is ,

; x=0,1,2,....,n and q=1-p

= 0 ; otherwise

Now ,

Therefore , the probability that at most two of the expectant mothers will have a Caesarean delivery is 0.5783

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), among individuals 18–25 years old in the USA, it
is reported1 that:
• 20% have used cannabis in the past month,
• 60% have consumed alcoholic beverages in the past month, • 10%
have smoked cigars in the last month.
Assume using cannabis, consuming alcohol, and smoking cigars are
independent but not mutually exclusive events. What is the
probability that an individual 18–25 years old either used cannabis...

The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention reported in 2012 that 1 in 88 American children had been
diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
a. If a random sample of 200 American
children is selected, what are the expected value and standard
deviation of the number who have been diagnosed with ASD?
b. Referring back to (a), calculate the
approximate probability that at least 2 children in the sample have
been diagnosed with ASD?
c. If the sample size...

In a recent study, the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention reported that diastolic blood pressures of adult women
in the United States are approximately normally distributed with
mean 80.1 and standard deviation of 9.9.
(a) Find the 70th percentile of the blood pressures.
(b) Find the 33rd percentile of the blood pressures.
(c) Find the third quartile of the blood pressures.
Use the TI-84 Plus calculator and round the answers to at least
two decimal places.

1. U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that
the American adults have the average of 8.6 days per month without
sufficient sleep, with a standard deviation of 1.8 days. A
researcher thinks the average days without sufficient sleep is not
8.6 days, and her sample of 50 households produced a mean of 9.1
days. Test her claim, using a significance level of 0.01. Show all
the steps (4 steps) discussed in class.

According to a report on sleep deprivation by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention, the proportion of California
residents who reported insufficient rest or sleep during each of
the preceding 30 days is 0.081, while this proportion is 0.088 for
Oregon residents. These data are based on simple random samples of
11538 California and 4645 Oregon residents. Let p1p1 be the
proportion of California residents and p2p2 be the proportion of
Oregon residents, and report all answers to 4...

a) Is it reasonable to conclude that heart or lung diseases were
the cause of approximately
29.04% of U.S. deaths in 2014? Show/explain how you got your
answer.

Check our blood pressure: In a recent study, the Centers for
Disease Control and prevention reported that diastolic blood
pressures of adult women in the United States are approximately
normally distributed with mean 80.8 and a standard deviation of
10.2.
(a) What proportion of women have blood pressures lower than
69?
(b) What proportion of women have blood pressures between 70 and
90?
(c) A diastolic blood pressure greater than 90 is classified as
hypertension (high blood pressure). What proportion...

According to a report on sleep deprivation by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention, the proportion of California
residents who reported insufficient rest or sleep during the on
each of the preceding 30 days is 8.0% while this proportion is 8.8%
for Oregon residents. A random sample of 11,545 California and
4,691 Oregon residents were surveyed. We are interested in finding
out if there is evidence to suggest that the rate of sleep
deprivation is different for the two...

According to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, average life expectancy has risen to 77.6
years. It has been suggested has rural areas in the Southwest have
a shorter life span than the general population. In a random sample
of 18 recently deceased residents of the rural Southwest, the
average life span was 75.9, with a sample standard deviation of 9.8
years.
a. State the null and
alternative hypotheses to be used to test whether residents in the...
