One reason for the increase in the life span over the years has been the advances in medical technology. The average life span for American women from Email-trough 2007 is given by W(t)=49.9+17.1lnt(1t) where W(t) is measured in years and t is measured in 20-year intervals, with t=1 corresponding to the beginning of 1907.
a. Show that W is increasing on (1, 6).
b. What can you say about the concavity of the graph of W on the interval (1, 6)?

a) Calculating W'(t) we conclude that W is increasing on (1,6).
b) Calculating W"(t) we conclude that W is concave downward on (1,6).
w(t) is concave downwards in (1,6)

Painful bone metastases are common in advanced prostate cancer. Physicians often order treatment with strontium-89 (89Sr), a radionuclide with a strong affinity for bone tissue. A patient is given a sample containing 4 mCi of 89Sr.
If 20% of the 89Sr remains in the body after 90 days, write a function of the form Q(t)=Q0ekt to model the amount Q(t) of radioactivity in the body t days after the initial dose.
b. what is the biological half-life of 89Sr under this treatment? Round to the nearest tenth of a day.

In the treatment of critically ill patients, teamwork among health care professionals is essential. What is the level of collaboration between nurses and resident doctors working in the intensive care unit (ICU)? This was the question of interest in an article published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing (Vol. 67, 2011). Independent samples of 31 nurses and 46 resident doctors, all working in the ICU, completed the Baggs Collaboration and Satisfaction about Care Decisions survey. Responses to all questions were measured on a 7-point scale, where 1 = never and 7 = always. The data for the following two questions (simulated from information provided in the article) are listed above. a. Conduct a nonparametric test (at α=.05α=.05) to compare the response distributions for nurses and doctors on Question 4. Practically interpret the result. b. Conduct a nonparametric test (at α=.05α=.05) to compare the response distributions for nurses and doctors on Question 5. Practically interpret the result. Question 4: Physicians and nurses cooperate in making decisions.
