Quiz 4 AMS310.01 Monday October 13 Print your name here_____________ ____1. Suppose f(x) = 3 for 0< X<1/3 and f(x) = 0 otherwise. Find the mean value of x. Hint = xdx 3 = 3x 2 /2. Suppose that Z has standard normal density (Z~N(0,1)). The p.d.f. of Z is f(z) = 2 / 2 2 1 x e - π for < < - x . Use Table 3 for the Standard Normal Distribution Function to answer Questions 2 through 4 below. _____ 2. P( Z< 1.28) = _____3. P( Z > 2.33) =____ _____ 4. z 0.1 = i.e., Find c such that P(Z> c) = 0.1.

P(Z &gt; z 0.1 ) = 0.1. So P(Z&lt; z 0.1 ) = (z 0.1 )= 0.9 ( Z has standard normal c.d.f.) From Table 3(or from Quiz question 2): ( 1.28 )= 0.90. So z 0.1 =1.28 2...
