George sneezed in Lucas' face and Lucas caught his cold. Ptady, who was sitting across the room, also gets sick.
What two types of transmission are responsible here? Be specific.
That is correct. Your turn.Something something no posts.

- Are we gonna revive this :o (answer)
- Something that I know!
On the statistics handout from soinc.org it lists the equation for z tests, so I'd assume we're expected to know how to calculate it. I'm pretty sure the only ones we're just supposed to understand are CMH, Fisher's Exact, and McNemar's.I think a z-test would do, because you're working with proportions rather than numbers. I believe you're only required to understand statistics and not expected to calculate them.
Oddly enough, I've never been expected to complete a statistical test, but I've been asked to perform adjustments. At states last year, I had to do a CMH-RR.On the statistics handout from soinc.org it lists the equation for z tests, so I'd assume we're expected to know how to calculate it.

Yeah Fisher's Exact was what I was going for, although I'm really not sure whether that makes sense. And I have no idea how one could get botulism from cooked steak, I just made up the scenario randomly without putting too much effort into a realistic scenario.

I'm not sure I trust those calculations.
- but here you go
While working on this problem, I found this interesting read: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2938757/ I'm not sure if a z-test is appropriate with a contingency table; a confidence interval may be more suitable
Thinking about it, I think a Fisher's Exact Test would also work.
- calculations
That works. I guess it wasn't that good of a question. I was thinking of short incubation periods, gastrointestinal symptoms, and point-source outbreaks (which you said)
- A bit vague
