Normal Distribution

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.

Normal Distribution

decimal places) 2. Find the value of z if the area under a Standard Normal curve a) to the right of z is 0.3632; b) to the left of z is 0.1131; c) between 0 and z, with z > 0, is 0.4838; d) between -z and z, with z > 0, is 0.9500. Ans : a) z = + 0.35 ( find 0.5- 0.3632 = 0.1368 in the normal table) b) z = -1.21 ( find 0.5 – 0.1131 = 0.3869 in the normal table) c ) the area between 0 to z is 0.4838, z = 2.14 d) the area to the...

Normal Distribution and Random Sample

points) 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) (c) What is the probability that [pic] will differ from the population...

Computational Aspects of Normal Distribution

•H.P.Gautam The purpose of this article is not to explain any more the usefulness of normal distribution in decision-making process no matter whether in social sciences or in natural sciences. Nor is the purpose of making any discussions on the theory of how it can be derived. The only objective of writing this article is to acquaint the enthusiastic readers (specially students) with the simple procedure ( iterative procedure) for finding the numerical value of a normally distributed variable. The...

Normal Distribution and Multiple Vitamin

skewed-right 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 skewed-right with mean = 10 minutes and standard error = 0.8 minutes. b) Distribution is skewed-right with mean = 10 minutes and standard error = 8 minutes. c) Distribution is approximately...

Statistics: Normal Distribution and Data

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 non-normal). 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 average of the observations and is used to describe...

Normal Distribution and Population Mean

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 normal distribution. 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) = (29-32)/2 = -3/2 z(34) = (34-32)/2 = 1 z(32) = 0 P(32 < x < 34) = P(0< z < 1) = 0.34 b. What percent of...

Variances: Normal Distribution and Budget Cash Figure

(However in large organisations it is normal to allow for the impact of a disaster centrally as a contingency even if it is not budgeted at operating unit level.) If necessary, insurance should be taken out. If business is disrupted for two weeks, then it is pointless to compare the remaining two weeks of the month against a full month's budget. Produce a realistic budget for only two weeks and compare against that to establish true performance under normal circumstances. 4. Differences between...

Sampling Distribution of the Sample Mean

X-bar Definition 1 x   xi n i 1 Probability and statistics - Karol Flisikowski n Sampling Distribution of x-bar  How does x-bar behave? To study the behavior, imagine taking many random samples of size n, and computing an x-bar for each of the samples.  Then we plot this set of x-bars with a histogram. Probability and statistics - Karol Flisikowski Sampling Distribution of x-bar Probability and statistics - Karol Flisikowski Central Limit Theorem  The key to the...
