Question

A large manufacturing firm tests job applicants. Test scores are normally distributed with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 50.

-what proportion of people get scores between 400 and 600?

-What proportion of people get higher than 450?

Answer #1

Part a)

P ( 400 < X < 600 )

Standardizing the value

Z = ( 400 - 500 ) / 50

Z = -2

Z = ( 600 - 500 ) / 50

Z = 2

P ( -2 < Z < 2 )

P ( 400 < X < 600 ) = P ( Z < 2 ) - P ( Z < -2 )

P ( 400 < X < 600 ) = 0.9772 - 0.0228

P ( 400 < X < 600 ) = 0.9545

Part b)

P ( X > 450 ) = 1 - P ( X < 450 )

Standardizing the value

Z = ( 450 - 500 ) / 50

Z = -1

P ( Z > -1 )

P ( X > 450 ) = 1 - P ( Z < -1 )

P ( X > 450 ) = 1 - 0.1587

P ( X > 450 ) = 0.8413

A large manufacturing firm tests job applicants who recently
graduated from colleges. The test scores are normally distributed
with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 50. If an applicant
is selected at random, what is the probability that he/she has a
score between 438 and 604?

The Scholastic Assessment Test is standardized to be normally
distributed with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 100.
What percent of SAT scores falls:
* between 400 and 600?
* Above 600?
I'm really more worried about the extensive steps to get the
answer so please clarify

A large software company gives job applicants a test of
programming ability and the mean for that test has been 160 in the
past. Assume that the test scores are normally distributed.
Twenty-five job applicants are randomly selected from one large
university and they produce a mean score and standard deviation of
168 and 12, respectively. Use a 0.05 level of significance to test
the claim that this sample comes from a population with a mean
score greater than 160....

A large software company gives job applicants a test of
programming ability and the mean for that test has been 160 in the
past. Twenty-five job applicants are randomly selected from a large
university and they produce a mean score of 183 and a standard
deviation of 12. Use a 5% significance level and the
critical-value method to test whether the mean
score for students from this university is greater than 160. Assume
the population is normally distributed. Correctly state...

Scores on a certain test are normally distributed with a mean of
77.5 and a standard deviation 9.3.
a) What is the probability that an individual student will score
more than 90?
b) What proportion of the population will have a score between
of 70 and 85?
c) Find the score that is the 80th percentile of all tests.

A large software company gives job applicants a test of
programming ability and the mean for that test has been 182 in the
past. Twenty five job applicants are randomly selected, and they
produce a sample mean score of 186 and a sample standard deviation
of 12. Use a 5% level of significance to test the claim that this
sample comes from a population with a mean score greater than 182.
Assume the distribution is normally distributed.(Round to two
decimal...

12. a) If scores on a certain medical test are normally
distributed with mean 50 and standard deviation 5, what score (or
lower) would place a score in the bottom 10% of scores?
b) If scores on a certain medical test are normally distributed
with mean 50 and standard deviation 5, and if 30 of these medical
test scores are selected at random and the average score is
computed, what is the probability that this average score will be
greater...

Find the indicated probability. A bank’s loan officer
rates applicants for credit. The ratings are
normally distributed
with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 50. If an applicant
is
randomly
selected find the
probability of a rating that is between 450 and 600.

For a certain very large group of students, test scores are
normally distributed with a mean of 70 and a standard deviation of
8. A student will receive an A if he gets at least a 92, and must
earn at least a 67 in order to pass.

will get an A on the test?
b. What is the probability that a random sample of 20 students
will have...
