Question

The physical fitness of a patient is often measured by the patient’s maximum oxygen uptake (recorded in milliliters per kilogram, ml/kg). The mean maximum oxygen uptake for cardiac patients who regularly participate in sports or exercise programs was found to be 24.1, with a standard deviation of 6.30 (Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly, Oct. 1997). Assume that this distribution is approximately normal.
a. What is the probability that a cardiac patient who regularly participates in sports has a maximum oxygen uptake of at least 20 ml/kg?
b. What is the probability that a cardiac patient who regularly exercises has a maximum oxygen uptake of 10.5 ml/kg or lower?
c. Consider a cardiac patient with a maximum oxygen uptake of 10.5. Is it likely that this patient participates regularly in sports or exercise programs? Explain.
