Question

Given a population with a mean of µ = 100 and a variance σ2 = 13, assume the central limit theorem applies when the sample size is n ≥ 25. A random sample of size n = 28 is obtained. What is the probability that 98.02 < x⎯⎯ < 99.08?

Answer #1

Using central limit theorem,

P( < x) = P (Z < x - / / sqrt(n) )

So,

P( 98.02 < < 99.08) = P( < 99.08) - P( < 98.02)

= P( Z < 99.08 - 100 / sqrt(13) / sqrt(28) ) - P( Z < 98.02 - 100 / sqrt(13) / sqrt(28) )

= P (Z < -1.3502) - P( Z < -2.9058)

= 0.0885 - 0.0018 (From Z table)

= **0.0867**

probability of getting a mean of 98.2 degrees F or lower. (Verify
that the central limit theorem applies if you are using it.)

with finite mean μ and variance σ2, then the distribution of will
be approximately normal, with a standard deviation of σ / √n.
