Stat 215 Assignment 7 Module: Binomial , Exercise: Drugs Objective : (not available) Problem Description : Historical information is available on two cold drugs: A and B. The probability Drug A cures a randomly selected patient is 0.40, whereas the probability for Drug B is 0.60. A physician treats 20 randomly selected patients with Drug A and 20 patients with Drug B. The conditions of the binomial distribution are assumed to hold. The following binomial Java applet displays the probabilities (initially) of a binomial random variable X A for Drug A with n = 20 and p = 0.4. Use this applet to answer the following questions concerning the number of patients cured for each of the drugs. Question Compare the population means and standard deviations of the binomial distributions for the patients taking drugs A and B. Discuss the skewness of these distributions. Answer For Drug A: E(X) = np = 20(.4) = 8 sd(X) =sqrt(npq) = sqrt(20(.4)(.6)) = sqrt(4.8) = 2.191 For Drug B: E(X) = np = 20(.6) = 12 sd(X) = sqrt(npq) =sqrt(4.8) = 2.191

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
