Question

Imagine that we are studying scores of a population of students who took a national exam. We know that the distribution is normal, that the mean is 100, and that the standard deviation is 4. Now we plan to take samples of 4 students, and we want to know the characteristics of the distribution of means.

What would be the standard of deviation of the distribution of means?

Answer #1

According to the Central Limit Theorem, the mean of distribution of sample mean will be the same as the population mean and the standard deviation of distribution of sample mean will be , where is the population standard deviation and n is the sample size

Here,

Population mean, = 100

= 4

n = 4

Mean of the distribution of means = 100

Standard of deviation of the distribution of means =

=

= **2**

The eighth-grade students at a large school district took a
standardized math exam. Suppose that the scores were normally
distributed with mean 77 and standard deviation 12. A sample of 30
scores is randomly selected.
(a)
Find the mean of the sampling distribution of the mean scores
from samples of size 30.
μx =
(b)
Find the standard deviation of the sampling distribution from
part (a). (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

The mean scores of a random sample of 17 students who took a
special test is 83.5. If the standard deviation of the scores is
4.1, and the sample comes from normal population, find the point
and the interval estimates of the population mean adopting a
confidence level of 90%.
Point estimate = _____
Interval estimate = _____
Please provide a clear solution

Professor Cory was disappointed with the scores on the most
recent exam. Thirty students took the exam, and scores ranged from
35 to 89, with an average of 63.9 and a standard deviation of 9.2.
To make the scores more appealing, Corey decided to “apply a curve”
and add 15 points to all scores.
What will be the sample mean of the curved scores?
What will be the range of the curved scores?
What will be the standard deviation of...

The National Assessment of Educational Progress ( NAEP) includes
a mathematics test for eigth-grade students. Scores on the test
range from 0 to 500. Suppose that you give the NAEP test to an SRS
of 800 8th-graders from a large population in which the scores have
mean 299 and standard deviation 128 . The mean x¯¯¯ will vary if
you take repeated samples. The sampling distribution of x¯¯¯ is
approximately Normal. It has mean 299 . What is its standard...

A certain test preparation course is designed to improve
students' SAT Math scores. The students who took the prep course
have a mean SAT Math score of 504 with a standard deviation of
38.5, while the students who did not take the prep course have a
mean SAT Math score of 492 with a standard deviation of 43.5. The
SAT Math scores are taken for a sample of 78 students who took the
prep course and a sample of 85...
