QUESTION 22

MC2204: Which of the following are true about z-scores?

I: They are positive whenever X is less than the mean in a normal distribution.

II: The standard normal distribution, which is the distribution of all z-scores, has a mean of 0 and standard deviation of 1.

III: They can be found by taking X, dividing by the standard deviation, and then subtracting the mean from the result.

 a. I only b. II only c. III only d. I and II only e. I and III only f. II and III only g. I, II, and III h. None of these

QUESTION 17

Sol: option d. 92.2%
Binomial Problem with n = 10 and p = 1/4 = 0.25
---
5 correct on the test
---
Solve using a TI-84 calculator:
P(X >= 5) = P(5<= x <=10) = P(X = 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
= P(X = 5) + P(X = 6) + P(X = 7) + P(X = 8) + P(X = 9) + P(X = 10)
= 0.0584+ 0.0162+ 0.0031+ 0.0004+ 0+ 0
= 0.0781 or 92.2 %

QUESTION 18

Sol:
f. 89.6%
Binomial Problem with n = 5 and p = 0.25
P(X<= 2) = 1-P(X = 2)
= 0.8964 or 89.6%
