Another probability problem. I am not able to figure out the right values to use for favorable outcomes.
In a medical experiment, some students who suffered from stress were given the drug "StressOff" while others were given "Placebo". The proportions in different categories are given below.
- Find the value of p.
- Find the probability that a student chosen at random
- Took the drug "StressOff" but did not improve,
- did not improve at all
- improved given that he or she took the drug "Placebo"
These are percentages so,
This is wrong, the required answer is 0.32. When calculating probability of not improve, are the favorable outcomes out of only people part of the StressOff group?
This is the only thing I have got right in this problem!
Again incorrect, the required answer is 0.15
Any inputs to help me figure out what I did wrong here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks @CaptainBlack. I guess I was over thinking this one.
