The End PART A - TRUE/FALSE (1 mark each) 1. The Standardized Normal random variable has a mean of 1.0. A) True B) False 2. In Minitab, the Worksheet Window keeps a record of everything that you do. A) True B) False 3. The term "marginal probabilities" refers to probabilities that can not be accurately determined A) True B) False 4. If a Bernoulli process with =0.6 produces a success on the first trial, the probability of a success on the second trial is less than 0.6. A) True B) False 5. Mutually exclusive events cannot be statistically independent. A) True B) False 6. If P(A)=0.1, P(B)=0.2 and P(A B)=0.02, then A and B are statistically independent events. A) True B) False 7. A continuous variable may take on any value within its relevant range even though the measurement device may not be precise enough to record it. A) True B) False 8. Six sigma programs aim to have processes that operate at a 99.7% error-free level. A) True B) False

The End 9. A population is a subset of measurements taken from a large group. 10. Labeling responses "true" or "false" creates nominal scaled data. 11. The standard deviation is defined as the positive square root of the variance. 12. In a sample size of 40, the sample mean is 15. In this case, the sum of all the observations in the sample is i x =600. A) True B) False 13. When A and B are mutually exclusive, P(A B) can be found by adding P(A) and P(B). 14. The uniform distribution has higher probabilities for small values of X than for larger values of X. 15. Flipping a coin is an example of a Bernoulli process. 16. The probability that there will be no heads in ten flips of a fair coin is 10 0.5 . A) True B) False

    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.
