MGMT 305: Homework 2 Due Date: February 4, 2010 Quiz2- Sampling Distribution 27. ( Total -15 pts ) a. At = 178,000, P ( z ≤ 1.58) = .9429 At = 158,000, z = -1.58 P ( z < -1.58) = .0571, thus P (158,000 ≤≤ 178,000) = .9429 - .0571 = .8858 ( 5 pts ) b. At = 127,000, P ( z ≤ 2.53) = .9943 At = 107,000, z = -2.53, P( z < -2.53) = .0057, thus P (107,000 ≤ ≤ 127,000) = .9943 - .0057 = .9886 ( 4 pts ) c. In part (b) we have a higher probability of obtaining a sample mean within \$10,000 of the population mean because the standard error is smaller. ( 2 pts ) d. With n = 100,

At = 164,000, P (< 164,000) = P ( z < -1) = .1587 ( 4 Pts ) 28. ( Total 10 pts ) a. This is a graph of a normal distribution with = 95 and ( 2pts ) b. Within 3 strokes means 92 98 P (92 98) = P (-1.17 ≤ z ≤ 1.17) = .8790 - .1210 = .7580 The probability the sample means will be within 3 strokes of the population mean of 95 is .7580.( 4pts ) c. Within 3 strokes means 103
