Assignment 3 Due date: 21 October 2009 Total number of points: 32 Q 1. A medical research team wished to evaluate a proposed screening test for Alzheimer’s disease. The test was given to a random sample of 450 patients with Alzheimer’s disease, in 436 cases the test result was positive. Also, the test was given to a random sample of 500 patients without the disease, only in 5 cases the result was positive. It is known that in the US 11.3% of the population aged 65 and over have Alzheimer’s disease. Find the probability that a person has the disease given that the test was positive. Q 2.

Find the probability that (a) none of the patients will experience kidney damage; (b) one or more of the patients will experience kidney damage. Check your answers using MINITAB. Q 3. Assume X ∼ N (5 , 4 2 ). Determine the following: (a) P ( X < 11) (b) P ( X > 0) (c) P (3 < X < 7) (d) P ( - 2 < X < 9) (e) P (2 < X < 8) Check your answers using MINITAB.

### 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.
