Step 3

a.Finding the probability that 2, 4 and 12 chickens will suffer severe, moderate or minor side effects:

Let A denote the number of chickens that experience severe side effects from a new diet. The probability that the chickens experience severe side effects from a new diet is 0.07. That is, P(A)=0.07.

Also, let B denote the number of chickens that experience moderate side effects from a new diet. The probability that chickens experience moderate side effects from a new diet is ...
