Question

When randomly selecting 600 people, the probability of exactly 239 people with brown eyes is P(239) = 0.0331. Also, P(239 or fewer) = 0.484. Which of those two probabilities is relevant for determining whether 239 is an unusually low number of people with brown eyes? Is 239 an unusually low number of people with brown eyes?
Assume that 40% of the population has brown eyes (based on data from Dr. P. Sorita at Indiana University). The random variable x is the number of males with tinnitus (ringing ears) among four randomly selected males (based on data from “Prevalence and Characteristics of Tinnitus among US Adults” by Shargorodsky et al., American Journal of Medicine, Vol. 123, No. 8).
