62.Bayes' theorem is often applied to a variety of ________ probability situations, including those related to statistical inference.A)genericB)absoluteC)conditionalD)fixedPage 11
63.The probability of making zero to two errors per 1,000 keystrokes is 0.43, and the probability of making three to five errors per 1,000 keystrokes is 0.28. Find the probability (per 1,000 keystrokes) associated with making at most five errors.64.The normal distribution is symmetrical, which means that65.The standard normal distribution is normally distributed with a mean of ____ and a variance of ____.66.The unit of measurement distributed along the x-axis of a standard normal distribution is referred to as aA)standardized scoreB)x-scoreC)normalized deviationD)z score67.A researcher wants to know the probability of being named on the honor roll from a population where 8% of students are on the honor roll. If the researcher selects a sample of 400 students, then what is the mean number of students expected to be on the honor roll? Hint: This is a binomial distribution, where p= 0.08 and q= 0.92.68.What is the z scorefor scores in the bottom 5%?Page 12
69.Which proportion is largest in a zdistribution?70.Scores far from the mean are located in the ________ of a normal distribution.A)bodyB)tailsC)most sensitive areasD)most uncertain areas71.A normal distribution has a mean equal to 53. What is the standard deviation of this normal distribution if 2.5% of the proportion under the curve lies to the right of x = 66.72? (Round your answer to two decimal places)72.How is the standard error of the mean typically reported in a graph?73.Each of the following statements are true, exceptthat
