The distribution below is that of the proportion of blue M&Ms in 10,000 random samples of size 100 selected from a large population of M&Ms. As shown, the mean of the sample proportions is approximately 0.25, and the standard deviation of the sample proportions is approximately 0.04.

Based on the mean and standard deviation, the typical sample proportions range from:

Group of answer choices

0.17 to 0.33

0.25 to 0.33

0.21 to 0.29

none of the other 3 answers

Answer #1

**Solution:**

Given: the mean of the sample proportions is approximately 0.25, and the standard deviation of the sample proportions is approximately 0.04.

We have to find the typical sample proportions range, that is find range of proportion within 2 standard deviation from mean of proportion.

Thus find:

and

**Thus correct answer is: 0.17 to 0.33**

According to a university's reports,the GPAs of all of its
students has a mean of 3.3 and standard deviation of 0.15. Females
make up 59% of the entire student body.
If you were to take a large number of random samples of size n =
49 and record the sample mean GPA for each sample, the mean of
these sample means would be approximately

You would like to estimate a population proportion p.
For example, this might be the proportion of all undergraduate
students who own iPhones. You take a sample of size n and
discover the sample proportion p̂, the proportion of students in
the sample who own iPhones. Assume that p=0.36 and
n=500. Which of the following is true?
a. If you took many samples of size 500 from this population
and calculated a sample proportion p̂ for each, the standard
deviation...

15. Random samples of size 81 are taken from an infinite
population whose mean and standard deviation are 200 and 18,
respectively. The distribution of the population is unknown. The
mean and the standard error of the mean are (assuming infinite
population)
a. 200 and 18
b. 81 and 18
c. 9 and 2
d. 200 and 2

18. A sample of 144 observations will be taken....

1) If Pete is correct that the population proportion p=
0.30 describe the sampling distribution of sample
proportions for simple random samples of n = 150 drawn
from the population of college and university students in
California.
The words “describe the sampling distribution” mean that you
need to specify the shape, center and spread of
the sampling distribution. You should also state whether or not the
conditions are met for the process you are using and show a
calculation to...
