Blanche Mikhail studied the use of prenatal care among
low-income African American women. She found that only 51% of those
women had adequate prenatal care. Let us assume that for a
population of similar low-income African- American women, 51% had

at random, what is the probability that less than 45% will have
received adequate prenatal care?

sample of 36 women athletes at the school showed that 21 eventually
graduated. Does this indicate that the population proportion of
women athletes who graduate from the university is now less than
67%? Use a 10% level of significance
What is the value of the sample test statistic? (Round your
answer to two decimal places.)
(c) Find the P-value...

Blood pressure is measured in 100 women over the age of 65 who
have been diagnosed with glaucoma. The results of this study reveal
a mean systolic BP of 140 mm Hg and a standard deviation of 15 mm
Hg. 1. Assuming a normal distribution, approximately what
proportion of women over 65 years of age who have been diagnosed
with glaucoma would be expected to have a BP that falls between 110
and 170 mm Hg? 2. The variable “Blood...
