Unformatted text preview: Student: Grady Simonton Course: Math119: Elementary Statistics - Spring 2.010 - CRN: 49239 Instructor: Shawn Parvini - 16 weeks Date: 3/18/10 Book: Triola: Elementary Statistics, 11e Time: 4:05 PM Assume that the readings on the thermometers are normally distributed with a mean of 0° and standard deviation of 1.00 °C. If 3.5% of the thermometers are rejected because they have readings that are too high and another 3.5% are rejected because they have readings that are too low, ﬁnd the two readings that are cutoff values separating the rejected thermometers from the others. First, draw a bell-shaped curve and identify the region under the curve that corresponds to the given probability. If that region is not a cumulative region from the left, work instead with a known region that is a cumulative region from the leﬁ. The graph below represents the region in which thermometers are rejected. Y The two values must be approached individually. First, consider the value for the lower 3.5%. Using the cumulative area from the left, locate the closest probability in the body of a table of normal distribution values and identify the z score corresponding to 0.035. Alternately, technology may be used to determine the most accurate 2 score. The z score for the lower 3.5% is approximately - 1.81. The value for the upper 3.5% must ﬁrst be reevaluated as a known region that is a cumulative region from the left. Instead of ﬁnding the z score where the area to the right is 0.035, ﬁnd the z score where the area to the left is 1 - 0.035 = 0.965. Now, ﬁnd the z score corresponding to 0.965 either on a normal distribution table or by using technology. 2:51.81 Therefore, the cutoff values are approximately — 131° and l.81°. Page 1 ...

### 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.
