Question

Suppose a geyser has a mean time between eruptions of 75
minutes. Let the interval of time between the eruptions be normally
distributed with standard deviation

26 minutes. Complete parts (a) through (e) below

(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected time interval
between eruptions is longer than

87 minutes?

(b) What is the probability that a random sample of 13 time
intervals between eruptions has a mean longer than

87 minutes?

(c) What is the probability that a random sample of 25 time
intervals between eruptions has a mean longer than

87 minutes?

(d) What effect does increasing the sample size have on the probability? Provide an explanation for this result. Fill in the blanks below.

If the population mean is less than 87 minutes, then the
probability that the sample mean of the time between eruptions is
greater than

87 minutes_______ because the variability in the sample mean ______
as the sample size ______

(e) What might you conclude if a random sample of 25 time
intervals between eruptions has a mean longer than

87 minutes? Select all that apply.

A.The population mean must be less than 75, since the probability is so low.

B.The population mean is 75, and this is an example of a typical sampling result.

C.The population mean cannot be 75, since the probability is so low.

D.The population mean may be greater than 75.

E.The population mean is 75, and this is just a rare
sampling.

Old Faithful geyser.
b. What is the probability that the mean duration of eruptions
is between 2.5 minutes and 4 minutes?
