Week Three Problems A. Chapter 7: 1. 7.10 Suppose that the percentage returns for a given year for all stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange are approximately normally distributed with a mean of µ 12.4 percent and a standard deviation of σ 20.6 percent. Consider drawing a random sample of n = 5 stocks from the population of all stocks and calculating the mean return, , X of the sample stocks. Find the mean and the standard deviation of the sample distribution of X , and find an interval containing 95.44 percent of all possible sample mean returns. The mean is 12.4, If n=5 and N is 1815(number of stocks on New York stock exchange), then σx = - - σ5 N n N 1 = . - - 20 651815 5 1815 1 = 9.2126 (.998897) = 9.202437 And following the empirical rule that 95.44 of all possibility sample means are within pulse or minus 2 σx = 2(9.202437) = 18.40487 2. 7.22 In the July 29, 2001, issue of The Journal News (Hamilton, Ohio) Lynn Elber of the Associated Press reported on a study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation regarding parent’s use of television set V-chips for controlling their children’s TV

### 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.
