Question

Birth weights at a local hospital have a Normal distribution with a mean of 110 oz and a standard deviation of 15 oz. You take a random sample of babies born at the hospital and find the mean weight. What is the probability that the mean weight will be between 111 and 114 in a sample of 50 babies born at this hospital? Round to 3 decimal places.

Answer #1

X : birth weights are normally distributed with = 110 Oz and standard deviation = 15 Oz

If n = 50 we asked P( 111 < xbar < 114)

P( 111< xbar < 114) =P[111 - )//√n < (xbar - )//√n < (114 - )/(/√n)]

P( 111 < xbar < 114) = P( 0.47 < Z < 1.89)

= P( Z < 1.89) - P( Z < 0.47)

= 0.9706 - 0.6808

P(111 < xbar < 114) = 0.290

A random sample of 24 recent birth records at the local hospital
was selected. In the sample, the average birth weight was 119.6
ounces. Population standard deviation was 6.7 ounces. Assume that
in the population of all babies born in this hospital, the birth
weights follow a Normal distribution, with mean μ. A 95% confidence
interval for the population mean birth weight based on these data
is

Birth weights of babies born to full-term pregnancies follow
roughly a Normal distribution. At Meadowbrook Hospital, the mean
weight of babies born to full-term pregnancies is 7 pounds with a
standard deviation of 14 ounces (1 pound = 16 ounces).
Dr. Watts (who works at Meadowbrook Hospital) has four deliveries
(all for full-term pregnancies) coming up during the night. Assume
that the birth weights of these four babies can be viewed as a
simple random sample. What is the probability...

An SRS of 18 recent birth records at the local hospital was
selected. In the sample, the average birth weight was
119.6 ounces and the standard deviation was 6.5 ounces. Assume that
in the population of all babies born in this hospital, the birth
weights follow a Normal distribution, with unknown mean μ and
unknown standard deviation σ .
We want to estimate μ based on our sample.

The weights of newborn baby boys born at a local hospital are
believed to have a normal distribution with a mean weight of 3951
grams and a variance of 60,025 . If a newborn baby boy born at the
local hospital is randomly selected, find the probability that the
weight will be between 3485 and 4147 grams. Round your answer to
four decimal places.

Birth weights in the United States have a distribution that is
approximately normal with a mean of 3396 g and a standard deviation
of 576 g. Apply Table A-2 or statistics technology you can use to
answer the following questions:
(a) One definition of a premature baby is the the birth weight
is below 2500 g. If a baby is randomly selected, find the
probability of a birth weight below 2500 g.
(b) Another definition of a premature baby is...

It is known that the birth weight of newborn babies in
the U.S. has a mean of 7.1 pounds with a standard deviation of 1.5
pounds. Suppose we randomly sample 36 birth certificates from the
State Health Department, and record the birth weights of these
babies.
The sampling distribution of the average birth weights
of random samples of 36 babies has a mean equal to ______ pounds
and a standard deviation of ______ pounds.

Suppose that the birth weights of infants are Normally
distributed with mean 120 ounces
and a standard deviation of 18 ounces. (Note: 1 pound = 16
ounces.)
a) Find the probability that a randomly selected infant will
weight less than 5 pounds.
b) What percent of babies weigh between 8 and 10 pounds at
birth?
c) How much would a baby have to weigh at birth in order for
him to weight in the top
10% of all infants?
d)...

Birth weights of newborn babies follow a normal distribution
with mean of 3.39 kg and standard deviation of 0.55 kg. Use a table
of Z ‑critical values to find the probability that a newborn baby
weighs less than 2.125 kg. Give your answer as a percentage rounded
to two decimal places.
