Question

A random sample of 25 observations is to be drawn from a population with the mean of 40 and a standard deviation of 25. The probability that the mean of the sample will exceed 45 is:

a.Not possible to compute

b. 0.4772

c. 0.4207

d. 0.0228

Answer #1

Solution: Here, the given information are

n=25, =40, =25

The probability that the mean of the sample will exceed 45 is:

P(>45) =1-P(<45) ------------------ P(x>a)=1-P(x<a)

=1- --------------------(using central limit theorem for mean)

=1-P(z<1)

= 1-0.8413-----------(from z table)

=0.1587

The correct option is **a) Not possible to compute based
on the information provided.**

A random sample is drawn from a normally distributed population
with mean μ = 25 and standard deviation σ =
1.5.
a. Are the sampling distributions of the sample
mean with n = 33 and n = 66 normally
distributed?
Yes, both the sample means will have a normal distribution.
No, both the sample means will not have a normal
distribution.
No, only the sample mean with n = 33 will have a normal
distribution.
No, only the sample mean...
