If a random sample of 6 hospitals was chosen, find the probability that: a. i. [ 3 ] Exactly three hospitals will have 100 or more beds. ii. [ 2 ] At least 2 hospitals will have 100 or more beds. iii. [ 1 ] No more than 3 hospitals will have 100 or more beds. b. [ 3 ] What will be the expected value, and standard deviation of the number of hospitals with 100 or more beds? If a random sample of 1000 hospitals is chosen, what is the probability that: c. [ 3 ] At least 3 hospitals will have 2500 or more beds. d. [ 4 ] Between 520 and 575 hospitals will have 100 or more beds. e.
