a. What proportion of people in this study were infected with malaria? (1pt)
b. What is the probability that a malaria patient had blood type O? (1pt)
c. What proportion of the people in this study had blood type B and were not infected with malaria? (1pt)
d. Of the people with blood type A or AB, what proportion were infected with malaria? (2pt)
2. Create a sample of numbers with the following four properties. There are many possible correct answers for this question, so you need to show that each property is true for your sample. (4pt)
= 7
Range = 20
The mean is less than the median
Mode = 100
3. Suppose a certain drug causes kidney damage in 12% of patients who take it. The drug is given to three patients, and the effect of the drug on each patient is independent of the others.
a. What is the probability that none of the patients will experience kidney damage? (3pt)
b. If the first two patients experience kidney damage, what is the probability that the third patient will not experience kidney damage? (2pt)
