Question: In Chapter 6 we discussed how an understanding of probability

In Chapter 6, we discussed how an understanding of probability allows one to properly interpret the results of medical screening tests. The use of Bayes’s Law requires a set of prior probabilities, which are based on historical records. Suppose that a physician wanted to estimate the probability that a woman under 35 years of age would give birth to a Down syndrome baby. She randomly sampled 200 births and discovered only one such case. Use the Wilson estimator to produce a 95% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of women under 35 who will have a Down syndrome baby.
