    Hello GRians. I need your help! I have a stats problem I can't figure out because...Well...I suck at stats. It's actually for my wife, for her stats 2 class. The only class she needs to get her bachelors degree and it sure is making her feel as though she'll never graduate lol. She was going to see a tutor today but the campus closed early for some unannounced reason. Anyways, here's the problem...
    I'm not expecting someone to do all of this but...Maybe just help break it down so it's a little bit simpler or show the formula and we can maybe go from there. I don't know...This is just all sorts of pain in the ass.

    Yeah sorry, I have no idea what tails and P-values are.

    To test it just ask 30 black people and 30 white people though? Just make sure it's the same amount of each race, compare the results and badda-bing-badda-boom - there's your answer.

    Stats is a throw away class that you have to work to hard for and then never use again. Sorry. This isn't ringing any bells.

    No takers? Not too surprised since your P-number is only between 0 and 1.

    /Small P-value joke.

    Bored at work Why not
    guessing:

    28% of total americans

    38% of randomly sampled blacks
    ____________________________________-
    throwing out fake numbers:
    300,000,000 Americans -
    28%= 84 mil

    blacks = 13% of Us population
    29 mill blacks in US.

    801 "randomly" sampled
    [​IMG]
    and 38% without meds
    roughly 11 mil?

    13% of those without med issuance are black?
    doesn't seem like a big number to me.
    but the question asks is the problem more severe among blacks - I dunno, sample some other races so we can compare dickheads.

    _____________________________________-

    Help us out, give us a refresher - what have you learned in the chapter leading up to this question (what is it about?)

    I think Lethean learned something today. But unfortunately it has nothing to do with what he asked.
