pregnancies from conception to birth varies according to a roughly normal distribution
with mean 336 days and standard deviation 3 days. What proportion of horse pregnancies last between 330 and 340 days? ‘ g {‘3 7

5. 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. You will use random digit dialing to contact a
simple random sample of 200 households by telephone. a. What is the mean number of nutritious conscious people in your sample?

a. “More than half of Califomia’s doctors say they are so frustrated with managed care they will quit, retire early, or leave within three years.” This statement was a lead
sentence in a newspaper article. 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

pressure. They would like to compare its effects to those of the most popmﬁg

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. Identify the explanatory van'able and the response variable
