A study is conducted to assess the impact of caffeine consumption, smoking, alcohol consumption, and physical activity on risk of cardiovascular disease. Suppose that 40% of participants consume caffeine and smoke. If 8 participants are evaluated, what is the probability that:
A. Exact half of them consume caffeine and smoke?
B. At most 6 consume caffeine and smoke?

A recent study of cardiovascular risk factors reports that 30% of adults meet the criteria for hypertension. If 15 adults are assessed, what is the probability that:

B. None meet the criteria for hypertension?
C. Less than or equal to 7 meet the criteria for hypertension?

Please explain in detail how the answers were created.

Dear OTA,
Please help me with steps.
Thanks
A family has 4 children. The probability of having a boy is 50% (girl is the same 50%).
1) What is the probability that the family only has one boy?
2) What is the probability that the family only has three boys?
3) What is the probability that the family has at least one

Answer the following:
(A) Find the binomial probability P(x = 6), where n = 15 and p = 0.60.
(B) Set up, without solving, the binomial probability P(x is at most 6) using probability notation.

Answer the following questions in an analysis of whether level of stress and gender has an impact on caffeineconsumption (measured as cups of coffee per day). Copy and paste your results below.
a. Is there a difference between the levels of caffeineconsumption for

Would you please provide me with some information regarding the infra-red spectrum of caffeine. Attached I have a labeled spectra of caffeine would you please tell me how I would label it. The lines on my spectra of caffeine are :1650.49;1696.46;1548.42;1485.28;1455.52;1356.19;1237.09;758.34;744.96 all of these numbers are on my

h-p is said to be the leading seller of pc's in the U.S WITH 27% share of the pc market. if a researcher selects 130 recent pc purchases, use the normal approximation to the binomial to find the probability that more than 39 bought a h-p computer

Assume that a procedure yields a binomial distribution with a trial repeated n times. Use the binomial probability formula to find the probability of x successes given the probability p of success on a single trial.
n = 10, x = 2, p = 1/3

A summary on the daily consumption of caffeine for a sample size of 49 adult women produced:
Ð? = 49
X bar = 215 mg
s = 235 mg
range: 5 to 1176
1. Does it appear plausible that the population distribution of daily caffeineconsumption is normal? Explain
2. Is it necessary to assume a normal population distribut

Assume that 12 percent of adults in this country have filed for bankruptcy at some point in their life. If an independent sample of 20 adults is selected find the probability that fewer than 5 will have filed for bankruptcy at some point in their life.

Nathan wants to approximate a binomial probability by normal curve areas. The number of trials is 50 and the probability of success for each trial is 0.95
Can Nathan use the normal curve area to approximate a binomial probability?
