a) blood clotting time will be less than 7 seconds?
b) blood clotting time will be greater than 8 seconds?
c) less than 7.5 seconds?
d) between 6 seconds and 7.4 seconds? 6) If the probability of a person contracting influenza on exposure is .6, consider the binomial distribution for a
family of 6that has been exposed. What is the probability that
a) none will get influenza? ________________________________________
b) all will get influenza? ___________________________________________
c) at least two will get influenza? ____________________________________ 7) Each year a company selects 5 employees for a training program at a nearby university. On the average, 40%
of those sent complete the course in the top 10% of their class. If we consider an employee finishing in the top
10% of the class a success in a binomial experiment, then for the 5 employees entering the program there exists
a binomial distribution (P(x successes out of 5)).
