14. The average number of speeding tickets written per year on Main Street is 60. Use the Poisson Formula to determine the chances that 4 tickets will be written on Main Street October.

15. Use the Poisson Table to determine P(x) if x=8 and μ = 8.9.

16. Find the probability P(65 < x < 75), if the mean is 72 and the standard deviation is 2.

17. Use the Standard normal table to find the z-sσcore that corresponds to P88.

18. Calculate x if the mean is 82, the standard deviation is 2 and z=1.28.

19. Determine σ sub x-bar and μ sub x-bar if μ=244, σ=18, and n=9.

20. If n=10, p=0.65 and q=0.35 can you use the normal approximation to the Binomial? If not, why not? Show the math to defend your answer.

Answer #1

#11.

mean = n*p = 40*(1-0.27) = 29.2000

#12.

std. dev. = sqrt(npq) = sqrt(36*0.55*0.45) = 2.9850

#13.

required probability = (1-0.75)^2*0.75 + (1-0.75)^3*0.75 =
0.0586

#14.

P(X = x) = (e^-λ) (λ^x) / x!

P(X = 4) = (e^-60)*(60^4)/4! = 0.0000

#15.

P(X = 8) = (e^-8.9)*(8.9^8)/8! = 0.1332

#16.

P(65 < x < 75) = P(X < 75) - P(x < 65)

= P(z < (75 - 72)/2) - P(z < (65 - 72)/2)

= P(z < 1.5) - P(z < -3.5)

= 0.9330

#17.

z-score = 1.1750

#18.

x = 82 + 1.28*2 = 84.5600

#19.

mu(xbar) = 244

sigma(xbar) = 18/sqrt(9) = 6

#20.

np = 6.5

nq = 3.5

No can not use normal approximation because nq < 5

Susan is a sales representative who has a history of making a
successful sale from about 90% of her sales contacts. If she makes
12 successful sales this week, Susan will get a bonus. Let
n be a random variable representing the number of contacts
needed for Susan to get the 12th sale.
(a) Explain why a negative binomial distribution is appropriate
for the random variable n.
We have binomial trials for which the probability of success is
p =...

Question 4: A company medical director failed to find
significant evidence that the mean blood pressure of a population
of executives differed from the national mean μ = 128. The medical
director now wonders if the test used would detect an important
difference if one were present. For a random sample of size 72 from
a normal population of executive blood pressures with standard
deviation σ = 15, the z statistic is
√
z =...

This week we study Normal Distribution.
Part 1. Demonstrate that you understand basic concept of Normal
Distribution.
In two small paragraphs describe a couple of properties/rules of
Normal distribution.
Give one example of some practical case where we can use Normal
distribution (for instance, IQ scores follow a normal distribution
of probabilities with the mean IQ of 100 and a standard deviation
around the mean of about 15 IQ points.)
Part 2. Assign your numbers for mean μ and standard...

X is a binomial random variable with the parameters shown. Use
the special formulas to compute its mean μ and standard deviation
σ.
1. n = 8, p = 0.43
2. n = 47, p = 0.82
3. n = 1200, p = 0.44
4. n = 2100, p = 0.62
