Question

The extract of a plant native to Taiwan has been tested as a possible treatment for Leukemia. One of the chemical compounds produced from the plant was analyzed for a particular collagen. The collagen amount was found to be normally distributed with a mean of 7171 and standard deviation of 9.99.9 grams per mililiter.

1. What percentage of compounds formed from the extract of this plant fall within 22 standard deviations of the mean?

Answer #1

Given that the collagen amount was found to be normally distributed with a mean of = 71 and the standard deviation of = 9.9 grams per mililiter.

1. to calculate the probability between 2 standard deviations of
a normal distribution the empirical rule can be sufficient. The
empirical rule state that **95%** of data lies within
2 standard deviations of the mean.

or, we could use the excel formula for normal distribution which
is =NORM.S.DIST(2,TRUE)-NORM.S.DIST(-2,TRUE), this results in
proportion = 0.9545. we convert into a percentage we get
**95.45 %.**

Note : You may use both but the excel formula is very much accurate value, so choose according to the question.

The extract of a plant native to Taiwan has been tested as a
possible treatment for Leukemia. One of the chemical compounds
produced from the plant was analyzed for a particular collagen. The
collagen amount was found to follow a normal model with a mean of
78 g/mL and standard deviation of 6.3 g/mL.
What is the probability that the amount of collagen is less than
80 g/mL? Answer:
What percentage of compounds formed from the extract of this

In a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of
children, an herb was tested as a treatment for upper respiratory
infections in children. "Days of fever" was one criterion used to
measure effects. Among 309 children treated with the herb, the
mean number of days with fever was 0.91, with a standard deviation
of 1.54 days. Among 370 children given a placebo, the mean number
of days with fever was 0.73 with a standard deviation of 1.24 days.
Use a 0.01 significance...
