Question

The probability that a randomly chosen person is Rh-positive is 85%.

What is the probability that a randomly chosen person is Rh-negative?

What is the probability the next 5 people tested are Ph-positive?

What is the probability that out of the 5 people who have tested at least one is Rh-negative?

If two people get tested, what is the probability that one is Rh-positive and the other is Rh-Negative?

Answer #1

P(rh positive) = 0.85

1st part:

P(rh negative) = 1 - P(rh positive) = 1 - 0.85 =
**0.15**

2nd part :

P(5 people are all rh positive) = P(rh positive)^5

= 0.85^5

= **0.4437**

3rd part :

P(atleast 1 is rh negative) = 1 - P(all are rh positive)

= 1 - 0.4437 {P(all are rh positive) from previous part}

= **0.5563**

4th part :

P(1 rh positive , 1 rh negative)

= P(1st rh positive , 2nd rh negative) + P(1st rh negative , 2nd rh positive)

= P(rh positive)*P(rh negative) + P(rh negative)*P(rh positive)

= 0.85*0.15 + 0.15*0.85

= **0.255**

In humans, people with at least one dominant RhD allele have a
Rh positive blood type. People with a homozygous recessive genotype
have a Rh negative blood type. In the United States, 85% of the
population is Rh positive and 15% are Rh negative. What are the
values of p and q for the population in the United States?

Rh-positive blood appears in 85% of the white population in the
united states. Suppose 6 people are sampled at random from that
population and answer the following.What is the probability that no
more than 5 out of 6 would have RH-positive blood.

We know that the probability of a person getting infected with
COVID-19 (based on global data) is 30% and the probability of dying
because of COVID-19 (gobally) is 7.012%
After doing tests to 3,500 people in Florida we have found that
86% have not tested positive for COVID-19 and that 4.9% of the ones
that tested positive died.
1. Calculate the probability of a randomly chosen person in
Florida to NOT to get infected with COVID-19
2. Calculate the probability...

In a certain large population of people, the proportion that are
Rh positive (their blood has the rhesus protein) is approximately
0.82. Suppose 14 people are randomly selected from this
population.
a) What is the probability that exactly 12 are Rh positive? Give
your response to at least 3 decimal places.
b) What is the probability that more than 12 are Rh positive?
Give your response to at least 3 decimal places.
c) What is the probability that no more...

In a professional gathering of engineers, the probability that a
randomly chosen person is from the civil, mechanical, or electrical
engineer is 0.10, 0.28, and 0.62 respectively.
a) If a group of 10 people is chatting, what is the probability
that there are 3 mechanical and at least 6 electrical
engineers?
b) What is the probability that you need to meet at least 6
engineers to meet 3 mechanical engineers?

3. A diagnostic test has 95% sensitivity (the probability a
person with the condition tests positive = 0.95) and 95%
specificity (the probability a person without the condition tests
negative = 0.95). In a population of people given the test, 1% of
the people have the condition (probability a person has the
condition = 0.01). (a) What proportion of the people will test
positive? (b) Given a person has tested positive, what is the
probability he/she has the condition?

There is an 85% chance that a randomly selected person will take
their own re - usable bags to the grocery store.
a. If 20 shoppers are randomly selected, what is the mean and
standard deviation for the number of people what will use their own
re- usable bags at the grocery store?
b. If 20 shoppers are randomly selected what is the probability
that at most 9 shoppers will use their own re - usable bags at the
grocery...

Suppose that a medical test run on 372 people resulted in 38
positive results. Of those, 22 people were eventually confirmed to
have the illness. Among the people who tested negative, 3 were
eventually diagnosed through other means, and the rest were
healthy. Find the sensitivity of the test, the specificity of the
test, and the positive and negative predictive values. The positive
predictive value is the probability that a person is ill given that
they tested positive, and the...

Suppose that the fraction of infected people in a city is p =
0.01. 100 people from the city board a small cruise. You can assume
that the people are unrelated to each other and randomly chosen so
that each person is infected independently with probability p. You
can also ignore the possibility that they infect each other while
boarding.
Suppose that the virus test gives negative when the person has
the virus with probability 0.2, and gives negative when...
