0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 (f) What percent of the students work more than 10 hours a week? 17 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 27, 27% of the students work more than 10 hours a week. 2. Weights of newborn Golden Retriever puppies follow a normal distribution with mean 12.94 ounces and standard deviation 0.77 ounces. (a) What is the probability that a randomly chosen Golden Retriever puppy is heavier than 14 ounces? Let X represent the weights of Golden Retriever puppies. Then, X N ( μ = 12 . 94 , σ = . 77) P ( X > 14) = P
Z > 14 12 . 94 0 . 77

The Z score for the cuto ff for the lower 10%, or the 10% percentile, is -1.28 as P ( Z < 1 . 28) = 0 . 10 . We use this value to solve for the unknown height cuto ff . 1 . 28 = x 12 . 94 0 . 77 x = 11 . 95 ounces 3. A recent housing survey was conducted to determine the price of a typical home in Topanga, CA. The mean price of a house was roughly \$1.3 million with a standard deviation of \$280,000. There were no houses listed below \$600,000 but a few houses above \$3 million. i. Based on this information, which of the following statements is (are) true? (a) Most houses in Topanga cost less than \$ 1.3 million. (b) The sampling distribution of average prices of 20 randomly sampled houses is nearly normal. 2
(c) The sampling distribution of average prices of 20 randomly sampled houses is right skewed. (d) Probability that a randomly chosen house costs more than \$1.44 million can be calculated using a normal distribution. (e) Probability that the average price of 49 randomly selected houses is more than \$ 1.44 million can be calculated using a normal distribution. ii. Calculate the probability that the average price of 49 randomly selected houses in Topanga is more than \$1.44 million. P x > 1 , 440 , 000) = P

As an aid in the establishment of personnel requirements, the director of a hospital wishes to estimate the mean number of people who are admitted to the emergency room during a 24-hour period. The director randomly selects 64 di ff erent 24-hour periods and determines the number of admissions for each. A 95% confidence interval based on this sample is (18 . 575 , 21 . 025). Based on this information, which of the following statements is (are) false ?

### 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.
