Suppose we observe 84 alcoholics with cirrhosis of the liver, of whom 29 have hepatomas—that is, liver-cell carcinoma. Suppose we know, based on a large sample, that the risk of hepatoma among alcoholics without cirrhosis of the liver is 24%. What is the probability of observing at least 29 hepatomas among the 84 alcoholics with cirrhosis of the liver under the assumptions in Problem 5.50

Question
