A rare form of malignant tumor occurs in 11 children in a million, so its probability is 0.000011. Four cases of this tumor occurred in a certain town, which had 17,151 children. that this tumor occurs as usual, find the mean number of cases in groups of 7 151 children b. Using the unrounded mean from part (a), find the probability that the number of tumor cases in a group of 17,151 children is 0 or 1. c. What is the probability of more than one case? d.

The mean number of cases is (Type an integer or decimal rounded to three decimal places as needed.) f cases is exactly 0 or 1 is b. The probability that the number (Round to three decimal places as needed.) c. The probability of more than one case is (Round to three decimal places as needed.) d. Let a probability of 0.05 or less be "very small," and let a probability of 0.95 or more be "very large". Does the cluster of four cases appear to be attributable to random chance? Why or why not?
