Unformatted text preview: Stat 145: Exam 3 Review Answers 1. (a) The probability is: P ( X < 15) = P X 31 . 8 10 < 15 31 . 8 10 = P ( Z < 1 . 68) = . 0465 (b) The mean of the sampling distribution is 31.8 and the standard deviation is: σ √ n = 10 √ 25 = 2 (c) Yes, the sampling distribution of ¯ X is approximately Normal because the popu lation distribution is approximately Normal. (d) The probability is: P ( ¯ X > 35) = P ¯ X 31 . 8 2 > 35 31 . 8 2 = P ( Z > 1 . 6) = 1 . 9452 = . 0548 2. (a) You must check two things: • Are all probabilities between 0 and 1? Yes. • Do the probabilities sum to 1? Yes. . 000 + 0 . 003 + 0 . 060 + 0 . 062 + 0 . 036 + 0 . 121 + 0 . 691 + 0 . 027 = 1 (b) The probability is 0 . 000 + 0 . 003 + 0 . 060 + 0 . 062 = 0 . 125. (c) The probability is 1 . 691 = 0 . 309. 3. The population is all adult residents in Albuquerque. The parameter is the percentage of adult residents in Albuquerque who favor the mayor’s proposal.
