The systolic blood pressure of adults in the USA is nearly normally distributed with a mean of 117 and
standard deviation of 17 .
Someone qualifies as having Stage 2 high blood pressure if their systolic blood pressure is 160 or higher.
a. Around what percentage of adults in the USA have stage 2 high blood pressure? Give your answer
rounded to two decimal places.
%
b. If you sampled 2000 people, how many would you expect to have BP> 160? Give your answer to the
nearest person. Note: I had a bit of an issue encoding rounded answers, so try rounding both up and
down if there’s an issue!

When dragons on planet Dathomir lay eggs, the eggs are either green or yellow. The biologists have
observed over the years that 30% of the eggs are yellow, and the rest green. Next spring, the lead
scientist has permission to randomly select 47 of the dragon eggs to incubate. Consider all the possible
samples of 47 dragon eggs.
