Question

A certain population has a mean of 479 and a standard deviation of 33. Many samples of size 51 are randomly selected and the means calculated. (a) What value would you expect to find for the mean of all these sample means? (Give your answer correct to nearest whole number.) (b) What value would you expect to find for the standard deviation of all these sample means? (Give your answer correct to two decimal places.) (c) What shape would you expect the distribution of all these sample means to have? skewed right approximately normal skewed left uniform

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

mean = = 479

standard deviation = = 33

n = 51

a) = = 479

b) = / n = 33 / 51 = 4.62

c) approximately normal

Suppose we repeatedly take samples of size 100 from the
population distribution, calculate a sample mean each time, and
plot those sample means in a histogram. The histogram we created
would be an example of a (variable, population, distribution,
sampling distribution???) . According to the central limit theorem,
the histogram would have a shape that is approximately (left
skewed, right skewed or normal???) , with mean (give a
number???) and standard deviation (give a number??). The
standard deviation of the statistic under...

In a very large population, the distribution of annual income is
skewed, with a long right tail. We take a Simple Random Sample of n
people from this population and record the mean annual income of
the people in the sample. Use this information to answer questions
a, b, and c.(a) If n = 6, we would expect the distribution of
sample means to be
A. skewed to the left.
B. an approximately Uniform distribution.
C. skewed to the right....

Consider the approximately normal population of heights of male
college students with mean μ = 69 inches and standard deviation of
σ = 3.6 inches. A random sample of 10 heights is obtained.
(a) Describe the distribution of x, height of male college
students. skewed right approximately normal skewed left
chi-square
(b) Find the proportion of male college students whose height is
greater than 71 inches. (Give your answer correct to four decimal
places.)
(c) Describe the distribution of x,...

Suppose Diane and Jack are each attempting to use a simulation
to describe the sampling distribution from a population that is
skewed right with mean 50 and standard deviation 15. Diane obtains
1000 random samples of size n=3 from the population, finds the
mean of the means, and determines the standard deviation of the
means. Jack does the same simulation, but obtains 1000 random
samples of size n=35 from the population. Complete parts (a)
through (c) below.
(a) Describe the...
