In a certain animal population for each of the first 3 months of life, the probability that an animal will die during that month is 1/10. For a group of 200 newborn members of the population, aprroximately how many would be expected to survive the first 3 month of life?
How would you solve this? Thanks
Number of newborns that can die in first month = 1/10 * 200 = 20
Survived = 180
Number of newborns that can die in second month = 1/10 * 180 = 18
Survived = 162
Number of newborns that can die in third month = 1/10 * 162 = 16
Survived = 146
