Question

The average playing time of compact discs in a large collection is 34 min, and the standard deviation is 3 min.

(a) What value is 1 standard deviation above the mean? 1 standard deviation below the mean? What values are 2 standard deviations away from the mean?

1 standard deviation above the mean | |

1 standard deviation below the mean | |

2 standard deviation above the mean | |

2 standard deviation below the mean |

(b) Without assuming anything about the distribution of times, at
least what percentage of the times are between 28 and 40 min?
(Round the answer to the nearest whole number.)

At least %

(c) Without assuming anything about the distribution of times, what
can be said about the percentage of times that are either less than
25 min or greater than 43 min? (Round the answer to the nearest
whole number.)

No more than %

(d) Assuming that the distribution of times is normal,
approximately what percentage of times are between 28 and 40 min?
(Round the answers to two decimal places, if needed.)

%

Less than 25 min or greater than 43 min?

%

Less than 25 min?

%

Answer #1

(A)

1 standard deviation above the mean=34+3=37

1 standard deviation below the mean=34-3=31

2 standard deviation above the mean=34+6=40

2 standard deviation below the mean=34-6=28

(b)

k=2

p=1-1/k^2

p=1-1/4

p=3/4

p=75%

(c)

k=3

p=1-1/k^2

p=1/3^2

p=8/9

p=88.9%

percentage less than 25 and more than 43 =100-88.9=11.1%

(d)

Between 28 and 40 min =95%

Less than 25 min or greater than 43 min=100-99.7=0.3%

Less than 25 min=(100-99.7)/2=0.15%

In a recent survey of high school students, it was found that
the amount of time spent on reading books per week was normally
distributed with a mean of 28 minutes. Assume the distribution of
weekly reading time follows the normal distribution with a
population standard deviation of 2 minutes. Suppose we select a
sample of 16 high school students. What can we say about the shape
of the distribution of the sample mean time?
What can we say about...
