Chapter 7 Continuous Probability Distributions True/False 1. The Empirical Rule of probability can be applied to the uniform probability distribution. Answer: False 2. Areas within a continuous probability distribution represent probabilities. Answer: True 3. The total area within a continuous probability distribution is equal to 100. Answer: False 4. The total area within any continuous probability distribution is equal to 1.00 Answer: True 5. For any continuous probability distribution, the probability, P(x), of any value of the random variable, X, can be computed. Answer: False 6. For any discrete probability distribution, the probability, P(x), of any value of the random variable, X, can be computed. Answer: True 7. The uniform probability distribution's standard deviation is proportional to the distribution's range. Answer: True 8. For any uniform probability distribution, the mean and standard deviation can be computed by knowing the maximum and minimum values of the random variable. Answer: True 9. In a uniform probability distribution, P(x) is constant between the distribution's minimum and maximum values. Answer: True 10. For a uniform probability distribution, the probability of any event is equal to 1/(b-a). Answer: False
