Question

Suppose the sediment density (g/cm) of a randomly selected specimen from a certain region is normally distributed with mean 2.65 and standard deviation 0.85.

If a random sample of 12 specimens is selected, what is the probability that the sample mean sediment density is at least 2.00 g/cm?

Answer #1

Sample size (n) = 12

Since we know that

P(x > 2.0)=?

The z-score at x = 2.0 is,

z = -2.6487

This implies that

P(x > 2.0) = P(z > -2.6487) = 1 - 0.004040101160224149

PS: you have to refer z score table to find the final
probabilities.

Suppose that the pH of soil samples taken from a certain
geographic region is normally distributed with a mean pH of 5 and a

Assume that a randomly selected subject is given a bone density
test. Those test scores are normally distributed with a mean of 0
and a standard deviation of 1. Find the probability that a given
score is less than -0.53
and draw a sketch of the region.
The probability is?

Assume that a randomly selected subject is given a bone density
test. Those test scores are normally distributed with a mean of 0
and a standard deviation of 1. Find the probability that a given

Assume that a randomly selected subject is given a bone density
test. Bone density test scores are normally distributed with a mean
of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. Draw a graph and find Upper P
12, the 12 th percentile. This is the bone density score
separating the bottom 12 % from the top 88 %. I need help!

Suppose the lengths of bread made at a bakery is distributed
normally with a mean of 20 cm and standard deviation of 3.5 cm.
a. What is the probability that a single randomly selected bread
has a length less than 22 cm?

The weights of a certain brand of candies are normally
distributed with a mean weight of 0.8585 g and a standard deviation
of 0.0523 g. A sample of these candies came from a package
containing 467 candies, and the package label stated that the net
weight is 398.8 g. (If every package has 467 candies, the mean
weight of the candies must exceed 398.8/467=0.8539 g for the net
contents to weigh at least 398.8 g.
a.) If 1 candy is...
