Re: Healthcare stastics problem help

I do not get any of the choices either. I am confused as to why December 31st is listed twice though. Are you certain the problem has been reproduced accurately here?

Thanks for the help and taking a look. Yes, this is the exact problem. I'm not sure why the 31st is listed twice either but I will be sending an email to the teacher asking her about this problem. I think she has given the wrong choices to pick from. I'll let you know what she says once I receive her answer. Again thanks a million. I love this site and all the help I am receiving!

Using the first two rows of statistics (the others would result in double counting) gives 91.88%
