PROBABILITIES 37 control groups. It is this information against which we judge how likely or unlikely certain study outcomes are as a result of mere chance events, such as random sampling. This will give us a basis for deciding whether or not study results should be taken seriously. EXERCISES 1. A box contains 50 balls, 30 of which are red and 20 of which are white. (a) What is the probability of drawing 5 red balls on 5 draws, if you draw each ball separately and replace it (put it back into the box) every time after the drawing?

In the example of the diastolic blood 6 Tukey (1977) . 22 I. 4, we have a median value of 66, a 75th percentile of 76, a 25th percentile of 58, and an IQR of 76 − 58 = 18. 5 × 18 = 31. There are outliers at both the upper and lower tails of the distribution with extreme values of zero (probably a recording error) and 134 as the largest recorded value. Box-and-whisker plots offer a convenient graphical depiction of a frequency distribution. 4, it is immediately apparent that the distribution of DBP values is more or less symmetric, whereas the SBP values are skewed toward the upper tail.

4. 2. The median value (50th percentile) for this SBP distribution is 116, depicted in the graph by the line within the box. The upper limit of the IQR (75th percentile) is 130, and is depicted in the graph by the upper border line of the box. The lower limit of the IQR (25th percentile) is at 106, and is depicted in the graph by the lower border line of the box. Thus, the box contains the middle 50% of the SBP distribution: IQR = 130 − 106 = 24. 5 × IQR from the 25th percentile value. 5 × 24 = 130 + 36 = 166; the lower whisker is drawn at SBP = 106 – 36 = 70.
