Practice Problems for Central Limit Theorem © 2010 Radha Bose FSU Department of Statistics 1 1. Let us suppose that the weights of baby elephants are Normally distributed with mean 224 lbs and standard deviation 53 lbs. (a) What is the probability that the mean weight of 18 randomly selected baby elephants is more than 245 lbs? (b) What is the probability that a single randomly selected baby elephant weighs more than 245 lbs? (c) Is it more likely that the weight of a single baby elephant or the mean weight of 18 baby elephants will be more than 245 lbs? (d) Your answer to part (c) illustrates that (A) means are less consistent (tend to stray from their center more) than individual observations. (B) means are more consistent (stay closer to their center more) than individual observations. (e) If there is a 0.11 probability that the mean weight of 18 baby elephants is above a certain amount but less than 224 lbs, what is that amount? 2. A certain psychological test that determines if a person has more of a "male brain" or a "female brain" is designed so that the mean score for men is 50. We may assume that the standard deviation of men's scores on this test is 25.

### 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.
