STAT 350 – Homework #2 SOLUTION Text Exercises Chapter 1, Problem #40 1.40 X ~ Normal( μ = 8.8, σ = 2.8) a. P(X > 10) = P(Z > (10-8.8)/2.8) = P(Z > 0.4286) = 1 - Φ (0.43) = 1 - 0.6664 = 0.3336 P(X 10) = P(X > 10) = 0.3336 b. P(X 5) = P(Z (5-8.8)/2.8) = P(Z < -1.357) = Φ (-1.36) = 0.0869 P(5 < X < 10) = P[(5-8.8)/2.8 < Z < (10-8.8)/2.8] = P(-1.36 < Z < -1.36) = Φ (0.43) - Φ (- 1.36) = 0.6664 - 0.0869 = 0.5795 c. P(X > 20) = P(Z > (20-8.8)/2.8) = P(Z > 4.00) = approximately zero (< 0.0001) d Φ (z = 2.33) = 0.9901, so c is 2.33 standard deviations above and below the mean, c = 2.33(2.8) = 6.524, c = 6.524, thus 98% of trees have DBH between 2.276 inches and 15.324 inches Chapter 2, Problems #8, 9, 10, 14, 24 2.8 =0 () 1 2 1 0.75 1 fx EX x x d x ⎡⎤ =− ⎣⎦ 1442 4 43 2.9 a. Mean: = 4/3 1.333 () ( ) 2 0 0.5 x xd x = 123 A graph of the PDF illustrates that the larger values in the range are more likely than the smaller values, pulling the mean above the midpoint. b.

P(1.8 - 1.72 < X < 1.8 + 1.72) = P(0.8 < X < 3.52) = p(1) + p(2) + p(3) = 0.1 + 0.1 + 0.1 = 0.3 P(1.8 - 3 × 1.72 < X < 1.8 + 3 × 1.72) = P(-3.36 < X < 6.96) = p(0) + p(1) + p(2) + p(3) + p(4) = 1.0 Then answer the following Problems 1. For the following problems, use the dataset in the Excel spreadsheet from Lab #1 . a. Give the 5-number summary for this dataset. The lower quartile is the average of 0.92 and 1.61: 1.27 The median is the average of the 50 th and the 51 st smallest observations: 13.57 and 14.05: 13.81 The upper quartile is the average of 41.01 and 43.52: 42.27 Thus, the 5-number summary is: 0.00 – 1.27 – 13.81 – 42.27 – 96.36
