Question: approximately 826 of patients in the seasonal effect data set...

Question details
  1. Approximately 8.26% of patients in the Seasonal Effect data set contracted an SSI. If this happens completely randomly, in a random selection of 10, calculate the following probabilities, from a binomial distribution with parameters n=10 and p=0.0826. Show all work.
    1. Identify the complement of {X≥1} and use the rule of complements to calculate the probability that at least 1 patient contracts an SSI, P(X≥1) (10%)
    2. probability that more than 1 but less than 5 patients contract an SSI, P(1<X<5) (10%) (Hint: use the cumulative probability function in excel).
