A surgical technique is performed on eight patients. You are told there is an 80% chance of success.
a. Graph the binomial distribution using a relative frequency histogram
b. Find the mean and standard deviation of the distribution
c. What is the probability that the procedure is successful for exactly (2n)/2 patients if the operation is performed on n people?
This solution contains step-by-step calculations to determine the mean, standard deviation and the probability of a successful procedure. A binomial distribution graph is also included.
