A new vaccine was tested to see if it could prevent the ear infections that many infants suffer from. Babies about a year old were randomly divided into two groups. One group received vaccinations, and the other did not. The following year, only 328 of 2460 vaccinated children had ear infections, compared to 508 of 2453 unvaccinated children. Complete parts a) through c) below. a) Are the conditions for inference satisfied? A. Yes. The data were generated by a randomized experiment, less than 10% of the population was sampled, the groups were independent, and there were more than 10 successes and failures in each group. B. No. It was not a random sample. C. No. The groups were not independent. D. No. More than 10% of the population was sampled.

You are interested in finding a 95% confidence interval for the mean number of visits for physical therapy patients. The data below show the number of visits for 14 randomly selected physical therapy patients. Round answers to 3 decimal places where possible.

a) To compute the confidence interval use a t or z distribution.
b) With 95% confidence the population mean number of visits per physical therapy patient is between "?" and "?" visits.
c) If many groups of 14 randomly selected physical therapy patients are studied, then a different confidence interval would be produced from each group. About "?" percent of these confidence intervals will contain the true population mean number of visits per patient and about "?" percent will not contain the true population mean number of visits per patient.

The concentration of alcohol in a person's bloodstream is measurable. Suppose that the relative risk R of having an accident while driving a car can be modeled by an equation of the form R = e k x where x is the percent of concentration of alcohol in the bloodstream andk is a constant. Suppose that a concentration of alcohol in the bloodstream of 0.03 percent results in a relative risk of an accident of 1.4. Find the constant k in the equation.
