Expert Answer

Step 1

The distribution:

Denote X1, X­2 and X3 as the numbers of chickens out of the n = 18 tested chickens, which experience severe, moderate and minor side effects respectively. Here, X1 = 2, X­2 = 4, X3 = 12, X1 + X­2 + X3 = 18.

The probabilities for having severe, moderate and minor side effects are respectively p1 = 0.07, p­2 = 0.15, p3 = 0.78, p1 + p2 + p3 = 1.

The reactions of the chickens are independent of each other.

Thus, the number of chickens with the three types of side effects has a multinomial distribution.

Part (a):

The probability that 2, 4 and 12 chickens will suffer severe, moderate and minor side effects respectively is:

Step 2

Part (b):

For a multinomial distribution, each Xi marginally follows the binomial distribution with parameters n and pi, for i = 1, 2, …, k.

Thus, the probability that no chickens suffer severe side effects is:

Step 3

Part (c):

The binomial mean with parameters n and p is np.

Thus, the mean number of chic...
