Homework Problems: Questions: 1 (a to d)
1. Many primary care doctors feel overworked and burdened by potential lawsuits. In fact, a group of researchers reported that 64% of all general practice physicians do not recommend medicine as a career. Let x represent the number of sampled general practice physicians who do not recommend medicine as a career. Complete parts a through d.
a. Explain why x is approximately a binomial random variable.
b. Use the researchers' report to estimate p for the binomial random variable.
c. Consider a random sample of 28 general practice physicians. Use p from part b to find the mean and standard deviation of x, the number who do not recommend medicine as a career.
d. For the sample of part c, find the probability that at least one general practice physician does not recommend medicine as a career.
