A study was conducted to determine whether there were significant differences between medical students admitted through special programs (such as affirmative action) and medical students admitted through regular criteria. It was found that the graduation rate was 94% for medical students admitted through special programs (based on datafrom the Journal of the American Medical Association).
a. If 10 of the students from special program are randomly selected, find the probabilitythat at least 9 of them graduated.
b. Would it be unusual to randomly select 10 students from the special programs and get only 7 that graduate? Why or why not?
This solution shows step-by-step calculations to determine the probability of graduations with affirmative action programs.
