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 = . 77) P ( X> 14) = P ° Z> 14 12 . 94 0 . 77 ± = P ( 1 . 38) = 1 0 . 9162 = 0 . 0838 (b) What is the probability that a newborn puppy is between 12 and 13 ounces? P (12 <X< 13) = P ° 13 12 . 94 0 . 77 ± P ° Z< 12 12 . 94 0 . 77 ± = P ( 0 . 08) P ( 1 . 22) = 0 . 5319 0 . 1112 = 0 . 4207 (c) The lightest 10% of puppies are considered to be “runts”. What is the cutoF weight to be considered a “runt”? The Z score for the cutoF for the lower 10%, or the 10% percentile, is -1.28 as P ( 1 . 28) = 0 . 10 . We use this value to solve for the unknown height cutoF. 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 ° z> 1 , 440 , 000 1 , 300 , 000 280 , 000 49 ± = P ( 3 . 50) = 1 0 . 9998 = 0 . 0002 4. 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 diFerent 24-hour periods and determines the number of admissions for each. A 95% con±dence interval based on this sample is (18 . 575 , 21 . 025). Based on this information, which of the following statements is (are) false ? (a) This conFdence interval is not valid since we do not know if the population distri- bution of the number of people who are admitted to the emergency room during a 24-hour period is symmetric. (b) Using a 95% con±dence interval, it is reasonable to conclude that the mean number of emergency room admissions during a 24-hour period is 21. (c) Using a 99% con±dence interval, it is reasonable to conclude that the mean number of emergency room admissions during a 24-hour period is 21.
