Unformatted text preview: X i is the binge drinking percent-age at i-th campus which is distributed normally with mean 40 and standard deviation of 14 , i.e. X i N (40 , 14 2 ) . Since binge drinking percent-ages in different campuses should be indepen-dent, X i s should be assumed to be independent random variables. 4. X 1 , ,X n form a random sample if X i are independent and identically distributed random variables. A statistic is a random variable. Hence sample mean X = n i =1 X i /n is a statistic. It will be distributed as X N (40 / 140 , 14 2 / 140) . Note. Read section 5.4, 5.5 and do Ex.5.48. 5.52. 5.63. Lecture 2-4 will be based on sections 6.1-6.2....
