Unformatted text preview: students in the sample of size n = 100 that live off campus. Then X still has a binomial model with n = 100 and p = 0.70. However the sample size is large enough to use the normal approximation (could you verify this?). So to find the probability of at least 80, we use that X is approximately normal with a mean of 100(0.70) = 70 and a standard deviation of sqrt[100(0.70)(0.30)] = 4.58. 80 - 70 P( X 80) = P Z = P( Z 2.18) = 1 - 0.9854 = 0.0146 4.58 4. (ii) is the correct interpretation. 5. a. P(X < 65) = P Z < b. (0.0013)2 = 0.00000169 (very unlikely). c. 6. a. 65 - 80 = P(Z < -3)= 0.0013 5 x - 80 so x = 80 - 1.28(5) = 73.6 5...
