The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) reports that 70% of U.S. adults aged 65 and over have ever received a pneumococcal vaccination. Suppose that you obtain an independent sample of 20 adults aged 65 and over who visited the emergency room and the pneumococcal vaccination rate applies to the sample.
Determine the probability that exactly 12 members of the sample received a pneumococcal vaccination. The probability of obtaining exactly k successes in n trials in a binomial setting withy probability p of success is each trial is
where (nk) is the binomial coefficient, also represented as nCk, and is defined as
Follow the steps to compute P(x=12). First determne the binomial coefficient. Do not round your answer.
Compute (.7)^12, or the probability that exactly 12 adults have been vaccinated. Round your answer to six decimal places.
Compute (.3)8, or the probability that exactly 8 adults have not been vaccinated. Report as a decimal to eight decimal places. Do not round.
Compute P(x=12)=(20C12)(.7)^12(.3)^8, or the binomial probability that exactly 12 vaccinated adults are in the random sample of 20 adults. Round your answer to four decimal places.
