Elementary Statistics Chapter 5 Test - Form A Name:___________________________ Course Number: __________ Section Number: _____ SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response. 1) Replacement times for T.V. sets are normally distributed with a mean of 8.2 years and a standard deviation of 1.1 years (based on data from "Getting Things Fixed," Consumers Reports). (a) Find the probability that a randomly selected T.V. will have a replacement time between 6.5 and 9.5 years. (b) Find the probability that a randomly selected T.V. will have a replacement time between 9.5 and 10.5 years. These two problems can be solved by the same procedure. Draw the diagram for each and discuss the difference. Then, explain why the same procedure can be used. 2) The typical computer random-number generator yields numbers in a uniform distribution between 0 and 1 with a mean of 0.500 and a standard deviation of 0.289. Consider the following problems. (a) Suppose a sample of size 50 is randomly generated. Find the probability that the mean is below 0.300. (b) Suppose a sample size of 15 is randomly generated. Find the probability that the mean is below 0.300. These two problems appear to be very similar. Only one can be solved by the Central Limit theorem. Which one and why? Use the Central Limit theorem to find that probability. MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. Using the following uniform density curve, answer the question. 3) What is the probability that the random variable has a value between 0.6 and 1.4? A) 0.1000 B) 0.3500 C) 0.2250 D) 0.0250 Assume that the weight loss for the first month of a diet program varies between 6 pounds and 12 pounds, and is spread evenly over the range of possibilities, so that there is a uniform distribution. Find the probability of the given range of pounds lost. 4) Less than 10 pounds A) 5 7 B) 2

### 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.
