Bigger animals tend to carry their young longer before birth. The length of horse pregnancies from conception to birth varies according to a roughly normal distribution with mean 336 days and standard deviation 3 days.

Suppose that 40% of adults are committed to eating nutritious food when eating away from home. You operate a restaurant. To help plan your menu, you decide to conduct a sample survey in your area.

This conclusion was based on a mail survey conductrd by the California Medical Association. Surveys were mailed to a random sample of 5000 California doctors, and 500 cornpleted surveys were returned. N!) i‘; ~ rec-{2:0 E: St: 3* riff; b. Studies linking abnormal genes to an increased risk of breast cancer are now being reevaluated. An article stated that “early studies that evaluated breast cance- risk among gene mutation carriers selected women in families where sisters, mothers, and grandmothers all had breast cancer. This created a statistical bias that skewed risk estimates for women in the general population.” . r r Efimfifiafi h' J 7. A pharmaceutical company has developed a new drug for treating high blood pressure. They would like to compare its effects to those of the most popmfig currently on the market. Two hundred volunteers with a history of high blood pressure and who are currently not on medication are recruited to participate in a study. Half of the volunteers will be randomly assigned the new drug and the other half the drug already on the market. a.
