The table 1 below shows a relationship between actual daily temperatures and precipitation in the month of January 2011. These data was adopted from a meterological station in the states of Alaska, in the United States. Normal distributed data aresymmetric with a single bell shaped peaks. Th maean of the data it significant in indication the point that the peak is likely to occur. In addition, standard deviation indicates the spread, which is usually referred to asthegirth of thebeell shapedcurve (Balakrishnan & Nevzorov, 2003).

...or variability of the data about the measurements of central tendency.
MEASUREMENTS OF CENTRAL TENDENCY The appropriateness of using the mean, median, or mode in data analysis is dependent upon the nature of the data set and its distribution (normal vs nonnormal). The mean (denoted by x) is calculated by dividing the sum of the individual data points (where Σ equals “sum of”) by the number of observations (denoted by n). It is the arithmetic...
...skewedright distribution with a mean of 10 minutes and a standard deviation of 8 minutes. Suppose 100 flights have been randomly sampled. Describe the sampling distribution of the mean waiting time between when the airplane taxis away from the terminal until the flight takes off for these 100 flights. a) Distribution is skewedright with mean = 10 minutes and standard error = 0.8 minutes. b) Distribution is skewedright with mean = 10...

...standard deviation = square root of variance = sqrt(846) = 29.086 4. If we have the following data
34, 38, 22, 21, 29, 37, 40, 41, 22, 20, 49, 47, 20, 31, 34, 66 Draw a stem and leaf. Discuss the shape of the distribution. Solution: 2 3 4 5 6      219200 48714 0197 6
This distribution is right skewed (positively skewed) because the “tail” extends to the right. 5. What type of relationship is shown by this scatter plot?

...at Weston Materials, Inc., a national manufacturer of unattached garages, reports that it takes two construction workers a mean of 32 hours and a standard deviation of 2 hours to erect the Red Barn model. Assume the assembly times follow the normaldistribution.
a. Determine the z values for 29 and 34 hours. What percent of the garages take between 32 hours and 34 hours to erect?
z(29) = (2932)/2 = 3/2
z(34) = (3432)/2 = 1
z(32) = 0
P(32 < x < 34) = P(0<...

3. Suppose that a random sample of size 64 is to be selected from a population having [pic] and standard deviation 5.
(a) What are the mean and standard deviation of the [pic] sampling distribution? Can we say that the shape of the distribution is approximately normal? Why or why not? (10 points)
(b) What is the probability that [pic] will be within 0.5 of the population mean? (5 points)
