doesnt have an illness?

Answer #1

50 patients are interviewed .

Out of them 15 have fever , 10 have diarrhea and 5 had both.

**Using,**

**Probability = Favourable Outcomes/Total
Outcomes**

**A. P(one of both illeness) = P(Fever) + P(diarrhea) -
P(both)**

= 15/50 + 10/50 - 5/50

= 20/50 or 0.4

**Thus, there is 0.4 Probability that a randomly selected
patient is having one of these illness.**

**B.P( not fever patient) = 1 - P(fever)**

= 1 - 15/50

= 35/50 or 0.7

**Thus, there is 0.7 Probability that a randomly selected
patient is not having fever.**

**C. P (neither fever nor diarrhea) = 1 - P( fever or
diarrhea)**

= 1 - 0.4

= 0.6

**Thus, there is 0.6 Probability that a randomly selected
patient is not having these diseases.**

patient has the disease, the test is designed to return a
"positive" result. If a patient does not have the disease, the test
should return a "negative" result. No test is perfect though.
90% of patients who have the disease will test positive.
10% of patients who don’t have the disease will also test
positive.
20% of the population in question has the disease.

Typically, elderly patients with hip fractures may have long
recovery times. At one hospital, the average amount of time that
elderly patients with hip fractures would spend in the hospital
before they could be released to home care was 15 days. A new
physiotherapy program is developed and researchers want to see if
this new program gives recovery times that are different than the
typical average amount. A random sample of 12 patients was enrolled
in the new program and...
