Stat 503 Homework #4 (80 points) Due in class on TUESDAY 9/28 1. (13pts) In an agricultural experiment, a large uniform field was planted with a single variety of wheat. The field was divided into many plots (each plot being 7 100 ft) and the yield (lb.) of grain was measured for each plot. These plot yields followed approximately a normal distribution with mean 88 lb. and standard deviation 7 lb. What percentage of the plot yields were (a) (3pts)80 lb. or less? (b) (3pts)90 lb. or more? (c) (3pts)between 75 and 90 lb.? (d) (4pts)80lb. or less, with a condition given that the yield is between 75 and 90 lb.? 2. (13pts)The serum cholesterol levels of a certain population of boys follow a normal distribution with mean 176 mg/dl and standard deviation 30 mg/dl. What percentage of the boys have serum cholesterol values (a) (3pts) more than 186? (b) (3pts)less than 156? (c) (3pts)between 121 and 156? (d) (4pts)between 121 and 156, but given the condition that we know the cholesterol value is less than 156? 3.(6pts)For the serum cholesterol distribution of question5, find (a) (3pts)the 80 th percentile (b) (3pts)the 20 th percentile 4. (10 pts) The shell thicknesses of the eggs produced by a large flock of hens follow approximately a normal distribution with mean equal to 0.38 mm and standard deviation equal to 0.03 mm. (a)(3pts) Find the 95
