Assignment No. 2 Due Date: January 29, 2007 Student UFID: 62441221 Student Name: Shane Christy N.B. Use tables in appendix D for the standard normal distribution calculations. 2.1 Determine the probability of having an error between -1.5 σ and +1.5 σ in a normal data set. What is it for ±2.5 σ ? The probability between -1.5 and 1.5 is .86638. The probability of having an error between +/-2.5 is .98758. 2.2 Determine the percentage point ( t value ) for E 80; explain its meaning. The percentage point (t value) is 1.2816. 2.3 If the mean of a population is 2.456 and its variance is 2.042, answer the following: a. What is the peak value for the normal distribution curve? .279 b. What are the points of inflection? 1.027 and 3.885 are the inflection points.
