Math 127B, Quiz 5 Thursday, February 24th, 2011 Name: Recitation Section: Ten minutes. Calculators allowed. 20 points maximum. 1. A survey organization takes a simple random sample of 625 houesholds from a city of 80,000 households. On the average, there are 2.3 persons per sample household, and the SD is 1.75. Say whether each of the following statements is true of false, and explain. (a) The SE for the sample average is 0.07. [ 10 points] Solution True. The SE for the sum is 625 × 1 . 75 = 25 × 1 . 75 = 43 . 75. The SE for the average of the draws is 43 . 75 / 625 = 0 . 07. (b) A 95%-confidence interval for the average household size in the sample is 2.16 to 2.44. [ 2 points] Solution False. The confidence interval is for the parameter. (c) A 95%-confidence interval for the average household size in the city is 2.16 to 2.44. [

Unformatted text preview: 2 points] Solution True. 2 SEs = 0.14. (d) 95% of the households in the city contain between 2.16 and 2.44 persons. [ 2 points] Solution False. Makes no sense there is no whole number between 2.16 and 2.44! (e) The 95% confidence interval is about right because household size follows the normal curve. [ 2 points] Solution False. The histogram may not be normal. in fact it’s not, since 2 . 3-2 × 1 . 75 is negative. (f) The 95% confidence level is about right because, with 625 draws from the box, the probability histogram fo the average of the draws follows the normal curve. [ 2 points] Solution True. The average of draws follows a normal curve. 1...

    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.
