You need to order wound care supplies for your clinic for the upcoming month. You have two basic pre-packaged kits to choose from. One kit is used for open wounds, and the other kit is used for closed wounds that still require dressing for protection.

Last month your order was placed based on historic needs averaged over the past 3 years, which showed that 30% of patients require open wound kits.  However, at the end of the month you ended up having too many open wound kits and too few closed wound kits.  After consideration, you realized that  as of the past year, fewer patients have open wounds based on the progress that has been made in the early treatment phase.  You therefore looked at results since this change had been implemented, and calculated that now only 13% of patients require the open wound kit.

You expect to see 70 patients in the next month who require wound kits. 13% of 70 patients is approximately 9 patients that you would expect to require the open wound kits.

A) What is the probability that 9 or less of these 70 patients will require the open wound kit?

B) What is the probabiity that 9 or more of these 70 patients will require the open wound kit?

C) Based on your findings in letter A and C, is it sufficient for next month's order to include 13% open wound kits and 87% closed wound kits? Please explain.
