A zoologist is interested to find out if there is any linear relationship between the average gestation
period (in days) and longevity (in years) of mammals. A scatter diagram was plotted using the data
listed in the following table.

8 According to a psychiatrist, 3 out of 4 Singaporeans suffer from stress. A random sample of 30
Singaporean is chosen. Find
(i) the probability that there are at least 24 Singaporeans who suffer from stress, [2]
(ii) the most likely number of Singaporeans who suffer from stress in the sample, [1]
(iii) the probability that 25 Singaporeans in the sample who suffer from stress given that there are
more than 20 people in the sample who suffer from stress. [3]

5 such samples of 30 Singaporeans are taken.
(iv) Find the expected number of samples with less than 24 Singaporeans who suffer from stress.
[2]
Find the least number of samples required such that the probability of more than 1 sample containing
at least 24 Singaporean who suffer from stress is greater than 99%. [2]
