X = number preferring to work from home one day per week X has a binomial distribution with n = 80 and p = .30 (n is too large for the table – need normal approximation) Check conditions for normal approximation: 1) np = 80x.3 = 24 is at least 10; and 2) n(1-p) = 80x.7 = 56 is at least 10. Use Z = (X – np)/(square root of np(1-p)) You want P(X at least 25) =P(Z at least (25-24)/square root (80x.3x.7) = =P(Z at least _________) = 1 – P(Z < ______) = ____________ This is an approximate answer. For #37: Bob measured the length (in cm) and weight (in grams) of a random sample of mice of a certain species. The results of his analysis are shown below. Variable Count Mean StDev Minimum Median Maximum Length 150 168.67 43.15 63.00 163.00 280.00 Weight 150 150.77 19.76 101.00 150.50 208.00 Predictor Coef SE Coef T P Constant 39.05 25.09 1.56 0.122 Weight 0.8597 0.1650 5.21 0.000 Pearson correlation of Length and Weight = 0.394 37. ESTIMATE the average weight of all mice of this species in the population. Show all work and use proper units WITH 95% CONFIDENCE. Best possible answer. Need a 95% confidence interval for average weight. Xbar plus/minus 1.96(standard deviation)/square root of n 7

    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.
