STAT 100B HW III Due Friday 5pm 8971 MS Problem 1: Suppose we roll a die 1000 times, and the average of the 1000 numbers is 3.4. Is there evidence that the die is not fair? Problem 2: Suppose we generate 1000 random numbers using a random number generator in the computer. The random number generator is supposed to output random numbers that are independent and uniformly distributed over [0 , 1]. If the average of these 1000 number is .53. Is there evidence that there is something wrong with this random number generator? Problem 3: Suppose we randomly sample 10 people from the population of adult males, and we

Please find the 95% confidence interval for the average height of the population. Let us assume that the heights of the population follow a normal distribution. Problem 4: Suppose X 1 ,...,X n ∼ f ( x ) independently. For X ∼ f ( x ), let μ = E[ X ], and σ 2 = Var[ X ]. Let ¯ X = 1 n n X i =1 X i , and s 2 = 1 n-1 n X i =1 ( X i-¯ X ) 2 . Prove E[ ¯ X ] = μ , and E( s 2 ) = σ 2 . 1...

    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.
