Unformatted text preview: STAT 390 – Homeworks 4-6 Solutions 9/29 We have that 2 2 1 1. 2 x e dx μ σ πσ--- = So using the substitution z x μ σ =- gives dz dx σ = , so 2 2 1 1. 2 z e dz σ πσ-- = Hence 2 2 1 1, 2 z e dz π-- = giving the normal density with μ = , 1 σ = . 1.34 (d) Let z* denote the 99.9 th percentile, Proportion(z ≤ z*) = .9990. From Table I, any z value between 3.08 and 3.10 will do; a z* of about 3.09 would be a good choice. 1.37 (a) Let x = yield strength. Then, x ≤ 40, when standardized, becomes z ≤ (40- 43)/4.5 = - .67. From Table I, Proportion(z ≤-.67) = .2514. Similarly, standardizing 60 ≥ x yields ≥ z (60-43)/4.5 = 3.78. From Table I, Proportion(z > 3.78) = 1 - Proportion(z ≤ 3.78) = 1- .9999 = .0001. (b) Standardizing 40 ≤ x ≤ 50 gives (40-43)/4.5 ≤ z ≤ (50-43)/4.5 or, -.67 ≤ z ≤ 1.56. From Table I, this proportion equals Proportion(z ≤ 1.56) - Proportion(z ≤-.67) = .9406 - .2514 = .6892. [The answer at the back of the text is still incorrect.] (c) We need to find the value of x* for which Proportion(x > x*) = .75, or equivalently, Proportion(x ≤ x*) = .25. The corresponding statement about a z curve is Proportion(z ≤ z*) = .25. z*) = ....
