18.2 a. I would expect that this histogram would be unimodal and symmetric centered around .1 or 10%. b. no, this could not be approximated by a normal model because it fails the success/failure condition there are not 10 expected negative outcomes c. the center should be at .1 d. sqrt(.1*.9/50 18.4 a. it is appropraiate to use a normal model to describe the distribution of green MandM’s because drawing a green MandM is independent of drawing a different color,, the number of bags of MandMs taken are going to be less than 10% of the population of bags because there is no way that they could sample 10% of the total bags of MandM’s in the world and it passes the success/failure condition, the expected outcome of failures and success is more than 10% of the population p*200 = 20, q*200 = 180. b. sd = .0212, 68, 2.12.% lie within 12.12-7.88% green, 95% lie within 14.24%- 5.76% green, and 99.7 lie within 14.36%-3.64% green. c. the larger model would have a smaller sd, and thus the range of percentages within each percentile in the normal model would be smaller. The distribution of greens would be closer to .1. 18.6 a. sd (P) = sqrt((.1*.9)/500) = .0134 = 13.4%. z-= .12-.1/.0134 = 1.49 P(z>1.49) = .9314-1 = 0686. this is a very unusual amount of greens as the probability of getting that many is .0686 19.22. a. sqrt(.2367*.7633)/207 = .029 *1.65sds that contain 90% = .04785+.2609 = . 3088 .2609-.04785 = .21305. b. I am 90% confident that between 30.88% and 21.31% of 40 year old women who were previously unable to conceive had live births at this san diego clinic.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
