two similar groups of adults over 55 years of age were followed for a roughly seven year
period. The members of one group received a daily (400 IU) dose of vitamin E while the
members of the other group received a daily placebo. The summary statistics: ___

study in which individuals were repeatedly asked to determine which of 5 symbols —
square, wavy line, circle, star, cross — appeared on a card seen only by a study
investigator. If the subjects were guessing then they would have 1 chance in 5 of guessing
correctly on any one trial. The subjects in this study correctly guessed 12,489 of the
symbols in 60,000 trials. If the subjects were only guessing, estimate the chance of getting 12 489 or more correct out of 60,000 using the Central Limit Theorem. Do not worry about the “continuity
correction” here. Do give me a numeric estimate. * C : ﬁ (QM/46W 80.20le m: 6‘0/0002 f z [/5 WPMxIWy vamh w m (17009 ”5%) ’2 hp :G0/000)(//;> 3m 6. (54’0”)C “3)(4/5) :: ¢7,?[ / P(/Z/¢?75 C f 6o/050) 2:". \ If éalppo— limo») __ T #1,???» r220“)
