Grace Chen March 5, 2008 Stats 13/2A SOCR Lab Experiments Central Limit Theorem : Exercise 1 a. X indicates the values of the variable. The distribution column next to it shows the density at its corresponding X value. Data is the value of the stimulation. X bar is the values of the sample mean. The distribution shows the height of X bar, and data is the value of the stimulation. b. X=3.16 (3.16-5)/2 = -.92 (about 1 standard deviation) P(3.16<X<5)=P(-.92 <X< 0) = .50 – .1788 = .3212 c. Xbar=3.14 (3.14-5)/(2/sqrt16)= -3.72 (about 3.72 standard deviations – very far away) P(3.14< Xbar< 5)=P(-3.72 <Xbar< 5) = .5 – 0.0000 = .5000 d. Xbar will have a smaller standard deviation because its standard deviation is 2/sqrt(n)=2/4=.5. The standard deviation of X is 2. Therefore, X will have a flatter curve, while Xbar will have a taller, skinnier curve, with more values concentrated around the mean. e. The graph of the sample means looks normal centering around 5. The mean of the samples is 4.969. The standard deviation is around 0.497.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
