Question: The ministry of Health and Long Term Care in Ontario Canada

a. The median wait time for angioplasty is greater than the median wait time for bypass surgery but the mean wait time is shorter for angioplasty than for bypass surgery. What does this suggest about the distribution of wait times for these two procedures?
b. Is it possible that another medical procedure might have a median wait time that is greater than the time reported for “90% completed within”? Explain.
