Please can some one help me with the following:
A fisherman finds that approximately 17% of all his fish go bad by the time he takes them to the market. The fisherman catches 1,000 fish.
A. How many will go bad by the time he takes them to the market?
B. Find the standard deviation.
Thanks!

Statistics 
drwls,
A. 0.17*1000 = 170
B. sqrt[(0.17)(0.83)*1000]= 12
(I am guessing)
