1.
If you want to be 99% confident of estimating the population mean t0 within a
sampling error of ±20 and the standard deviation is assumed to be
120, what sample size is required?
2. Given a population of yearly sales (in number of copies) of a national
periodical
at newsstands
located in a particular
state, indicate what the sampling
distribution for samples of 25 would consist of.
A.
The sampling distribution is the average result from all possible samples
of 25 sales figures.
B.
The sampling distribution is a representative collection of 25 samples,
each containing 25 sales figures, selected without replacement.
C.
The sampling distribution is the distribution of the result for all possible
samples of 25 sales figures.
D.
The sampling distribution is a representative collection of 25 samples,
each containing 25 sales figures, selected with replacement.
3. If P(B)=0.3, P(A | B)=0.5, P(B)=0.7, and P(A | B)=0.9, find P(B | A).
4. If, in a random sample of 200 items, 44 are defective, what is the sample
proportion of defective items?

a)
Compute the range, variance, standard deviation, and coefficient of
variation.
b) Compute the Z scores. Are there any outliers?
c) Describe the shape of the data set.
6.
If n=300 and X=120, construct a 90% confidence interval estimate of the
population proportion.
7. In a random sample of 72 people, 36 are classified as “ successful.”
A. Determine the sample proportion, p, of “ successful” people.
B. If the population proportion is 0.75, determine the standard error of the
proportion.
8.
If, in a (two-tail) hypothesis test, the p-value is 0.0126, what is your statistical
decision if you test the null hypothesis at the
0.02 level of significance?
9. Determine the upper-tail critical value t
α/

e. 1-a=0.99, n=10
c. 1-a=0.90, n=30

10. Given a standardized normal distribution (with a mean of 0 and a standard
deviation of 1), complete parts (a) through (d).
a. What is the probability that Z is less than 1.01?
b. What is the probability that Z is greater than -0.27?
c. What is the probability that Z is less than -0.27 or greater than the mean?
d. What is the probability that Z is less the -0.27 or greater than 1.01?

a.
A person who is both male and female
b.
An individual who runs quickly and swims slowly
c.
A product that is neither foreign nor domestic
d.

12. Suppose you read a website that says that an international
health
organization
found that
15 % of children
in a
certain country
have pneumonia. On
what type of data source is the claim in this story based?
A. These data are result of an observational study.
B. These data are distributed by organization.
C. These data are outcomes of a designed experiment.
D. These data are collected by ongoing business activities.
E. These data are responses from a survey.
13. Consider a population of 1024 mutual funds that primarily invest in large
companies. You have determined that
μ
, the mean one-year total percentage
return achieved by all the funds, is 5.80 and that
σ
, the standard deviation, is
1.25.
a. According to the empirical rule, what % of these funds is expected to be
within +
3 standard deviations of the mean?
b. According to the Chebyshev rule, what % of these funds are expected to
be within +
4 standard deviations of the mean?
c. According to the Chebyshev rule, at least 88.89% of these funds are
expected to have one-year total returns between what two amounts?
