Qn. A drug manufacturer claims that a certain drug cures a blood disease on the average 80% of the time. To check the claim, government testers used the drug on a sample of 100 individuals and decide to accept the claim if 75 or more are cured.
i. What is the probability that the claim will be rejected when the cure probability is in fact 0.8?
ii. What is the probability that the claim wil lbe accepted by the govt. when the cure probability is as low as 0.7?

Hint: assume population mean P= 0.8. Work out the standard error for sample of hundred using P ie sd error=sqrt(P(1-P)/N), As long as NP and N(1-P) > than 5 you can assume sample distribution is normally distributed hence you can work out the required probability using the normal distribution tables.
