Topic: Sampling distribution of sample mean 1602 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 100. The chief chemist for a major oil/gasoline production company claims that the regular
unleaded gasoline produced by the company contains on average 4 ounces of a certain
ingredient. The chemist further states that the distribution of this ingredient per gallon of
regular unleaded gasoline is normal and has a standard deviation of 1.2 ounces. What is the
probability of finding an average in excess of 4.3 ounces of this ingredient from randomly
inspected 100 gallons of regular unleaded gasoline?
A. .5987
B. .4013

Topic: Sampling distribution of sample mean 101. The chief chemist for a major oil/gasoline production company claims that the regular
unleaded gasoline produced by the company contains on average 4 ounces of a certain
ingredient. The chemist further states that the distribution of this ingredient per gallon of
regular unleaded gasoline is normal and has a standard deviation of 1.2 ounces. What is the
probability of finding an average less than 3.85 ounces of this ingredient from randomly
inspected 64 gallons of regular unleaded gasoline?

Topic: Sampling distribution of sample proportion 1604 ? Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 104. In the upcoming governor's election, the most recent poll based on 900 respondents
predicts that the incumbent will be reelected with 55% of the votes. For the sake of argument,
assume that 51% of the actual voters in the state support the incumbent governor (p = 0.51).
Calculate the probability of observing a sample proportion of voters 0.55 or higher supporting
the incumbent governor.

Topic: Sampling distribution of sample proportion 105. It has been reported that the average time to download the home page from a government
website was 0.9 seconds. Suppose that the download times were normally distributed with a
standard deviation of 0.3 seconds. If random samples of 23 download times are selected
describe the shape of the sampling distribution and how it was determined.
A. Normal, size of sample meets the Central Limit Theorem requirement
B. Normal, the original population is normal
C. Skewed, the original population is not a normal distribution
D. Cannot be determined with the information that is given AACSB: Reflective Thinking

Topic: Sampling distribution of sample mean 1606 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 108. It has been reported that the average time to download the home page from a government
website was 0.9 seconds. Suppose that the download times were normally distributed with a
standard deviation of 0.3 seconds. If random samples of 36 download times are selected 80%
of the sample means will be between what two values symmetrically distributed around the
population mean.
