Construct a pie chart to represent the data
4. The mean and standard deviation of the distribution of the weights of a group of 100 patients are found to be 40
kgs and 10 kgs respectively. If at the time of calculation two observations were wrongly taken as 30 kg and 70 kg
in place of 3 kg and 27 kg respectively, find the correct standard deviation.
5. The median and mode of the patient waiting time at hospital to visit a doctor are 33.5 minutes and 34 minutes
respectively.

day. the results are summarized below

7. A student received an A in Basic writing skills (3 credits), a C in Human Physiology (3 credits), a B in Biochemistry
(4 credits), and a D in Medical Microbiology (2 credits). Assuming A=4 grade points, B=3 grade points, C=2
8. Gadise obtained results of 63 in Biostatistics and 58 in Biochemistry. For Biostatistics the class mean was
58 and the standard deviation 3.4, and for Biochemistry the class mean was 55 and the standard deviation 2.3.
Compared to the rest of the class did Gadise do better in Biostatistics or Biochemistry?

10. The combined mean of 50 students who passed and failed in Biostatistics is 51.6. If the number of students who
passed is 40 and its mean is 59.25. Find out the mean marks of the students who failed?
11. A study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of varying amounts of vitamin C in reducing the number of
common colds. A survey of 450 people provided the following information:

12. Ten persons came into contact with a person infected with tuberculosis. The probability of being infected after
contacting a person with tuberculosis is 0.1.
(a) What is the probability that nobody is infected?
(b) What is the probability that at least 2 persons are infected?

(c) What is the expected number of infected persons?

14. Assume the cholesterol levels of adult American women can be described by a Normal model with a mean of 188
mg/dL and a standard deviation of 24.
(a) What percent of adult women do you expect to have cholesterol levels over 200 mg/dL?
(b) What percent of adult women do you expect to have cholesterol levels between 150 and 170 mg/dL?
15. A box contains 24 bottles of pills , 4 of which are defective. If 4 are sold at random, find thefollowing probabilities.
(a) Exactly 2 are defective.
(b) None is defective.
(c) All are defective.
(d) At least 1 is defective.
16. A drug company is testing a new drug which is supposed to reduce blood pressure. From the six people who are
used as subjects, it is found that the average drop in blood pressure is 2.28 points, with a standard deviation of
.95 points.
(a) What is the 95% confidence interval for the mean change in pressure?
17. Several studies have shown that women with many children are less likely to get ovarian cancer. In a new study,
data are collected from 25 women ages 40-49 with ovarian cancer. The mean parity (number of children) of these
women is 1.8 with standard deviation 1.2. Suppose the mean number of children among women in the general
population in this age group is 2.5.
(a) What test can be used to test the hypothesis that women with ovarian cancer have fewer children than women
in the general population in the same age group?
(b) Perform the test
(c) Identify the critical region(s)
(d) What do you conclude from this study?
(e) What are the type I and type II errors for this question?
