The length of the interval is 2 x MOE. 3) A certain drug causes drowsiness in 20% of patients. Suppose the drug is to be given to 5 randomly chosen patients. Let p represent the proportion of patients in the sample who experience drowsiness. Find Pr{ p 1}. Pr{ p 1} = Pr{ p =0/5}+Pr{ p =1/5}+Pr{ p =2/5}+Pr{ p =3/5}+Pr{ p =4/5}+Pr{ p =5/5} = 1 since we’re summing over the probabilities of all events in the sample space 4) (Circle the correct answer) A study of the effect of transdermal estradiol on postmenopausal women was conducted.
