Question

- The weight of brain of an animal follows normal distribution
with mean 100g and variance 16.
- What is the probability that a randomly chosen animal has a brain weigh more than 104g?
- Take a sample of 25 animals. What is the probability that the average brain weight of this sample is more than 104g?

Answer #1

Mean = = 100

Variance = = 16

Standard deviation = = 4

a) We have to find the probability that a randomly chosen animal has a brain weigh more than 104g.

That is we have to find P( X > 104)

For finding this probability we have to find z score.

That is we have to find P(Z > 1)

P(Z > 1) = 1 - P(Z < 1 ) = 1 - 0.8413 =
**0.1587** ( Using z table)

b)

Sample size = n = 25

We have to find P( > 104)

For finding this probability we have to find z score.

That is we have to find P(Z > 5)

P(Z > 5) = 1 - P(Z < 5) = 1 - 1 =
**0.0000**

3. [16 pts] Suppose that the birth weight of puppies follows a
certain left-skewed distribution with mean 1.1 pounds and standard
deviation 0.14 pounds (these numbers are made-up). We are
interested in looking at the mean weights of samples of size n
puppies. We would like to model these mean weights using a Normal
Distribution.
a. [3 pts] What statistical concept allows us to do so and what
is the sample size
requirement?
Now suppose that we take sample of...

The weight of lobsters caught in the ocean follows a normal
distribution with a mean of 1440 grams and a standard deviation of
2h grams.
(a) Given the probability that a lobster caught at random has a
weight of not more than 1530 grams is 0.9463. Calculate the value
of h and correct the answer to 2 decimal places.
(b) By using the value of h from (a), if 1250 lobsters
have a weight between 1350 and 1500 grams, estimate...
