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...

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...

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...

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 Points

probably not attributable to chance is: (Points : 1) |        Type I error        Type II error        Statistical significance        In the semi-quartile range | 5. A score that is likely to fall into the middle 68% of scores of a normal distribution will fall inside these values: (Points : 1) |        . +/- 3 standard deviations        +/- 2 standard deviations        +/- 1 standard deviation        semi-quartile range | 6. It is important to assess the magnitude or strength...

Normal Distribution and Standard Deviation

 Student Exploration: Sight vs. Sound Reactions Vocabulary: histogram, mean, normal distribution, range, standard deviation, stimulus Prior Knowledge Questions (Do these BEFORE using the Gizmo.) Most professional baseball pitchers can throw a fastball over 145 km/h (90 mph). This gives the batter less than half a second to read the pitch, decide whether to swing, and then try to hit the ball. No wonder hitting a baseball is considered one of the hardest things to do in sports! 1....

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...

Statistics: Normal Distribution and Confidence Interval

distributed with μ = 110 grams and σ = 25 grams. A sample of 25 vitamins is to be selected. So, 95% of all sample means will be greater than how many grams? TABLE 7-1 Times spent studying by students in the week before final exams follow a normal distribution with standard deviation 8 hours. A random sample of 4 students was taken in order to estimate the mean study time for the population of all students. 11) Referring to Table 7-1, what is the probability that the sample mean exceeds...
