(a) Use a calculator with mean and standard deviation keys to find the sample mean year x and sample standard deviation s. (Round your answers to the nearest whole number.)
x = 

s = 
(b) Find a 90% confidence interval for the mean of all tree ring
dates from this archaeological site. (Round your answers to the
nearest whole number.)

4)For this problem, carry at least four digits after the decimal
in your calculations. Answers may vary slightly due to
rounding.
In a random sample of 69 professional actors, it was found that 39
were extroverts.
(a) Let p represent the proportion of all actors who
are extroverts. Find a point estimate for p. (Round your
answer to four decimal places.)
(b) Find a 95% confidence interval for p. (Round your
answers to two decimal places.)
lower limit 

upper limit 
Give a brief interpretation of the meaning of the confidence
interval you have found.
We are 95% confident that the true proportion of actors who are extroverts falls outside this interval.We are 5% confident that the true proportion of actors who are extroverts falls above this interval. We are 95% confident that the true proportion of actors who are extroverts falls within this interval.We are 5% confident that the true proportion of actors who are extroverts falls within this interval.
(c) Do you think the conditions np > 5 and nq > 5 are satisfied in this problem? Explain why this would be an important consideration.
No, the conditions are not satisfied. This is important because it allows us to say that p̂ is approximately normal.
Yes, the conditions are satisfied. This is important because it allows us to say that p̂ is approximately normal.
Yes, the conditions are satisfied. This is important because it allows us to say that p̂ is approximately binomial.
No, the conditions are not satisfied. This is important because it allows us to say that p̂ is approximately binomial.
5)Raul received a score of 74 on a history test for which the class mean was 70 with a standard deviation of 10. He received a score of 76 on a biology test for which the class mean was 70 with standard deviation 4. On which test did he do better relative to the rest of the class?
biology test, history test, the same
6)Find z such that 6% of the standard normal curve lies
to the left of z. (Round your answer to three decimal
places.) z =
Assume that x has a normal distribution with the specified
mean and standard deviation. Find the indicated probability. (Round
your answer to four decimal places.)
μ = 52; σ = 17
P(40 ≤ x ≤ 47) =
7)Find z such that 8% of the standard normal curve lies
to the right of z. (Round your answer to two decimal
places.)
z =
Solution:
Question 1)
Given: A normal distribution has and
Part a) We have to find the z score corresponding to x = 19.
z score formula:
Part b) Find the z score corresponding to x = 35
Part c) Find the raw score corresponding to z = −2.
We use following formula to find raw score:
Part d) Find the raw score corresponding to z = 1.7.
