Question

According to a recent poll cholesterol levels in healthy adults are skewed right with a mean of 209 mg/dL and a standard deviation of 35 mg/dL. A random sample of 42 healthy adults is selected. Find the probability that the total cholesterol level in the sample of 42 adults will be less than 8400.

a. 0.0475

b. 0.9525

c. 1

d. 0

e. 0.3974

Answer #1

Solution:

Given that ,

= 209

= 35

A sample of size n = 42 is taken from this population.

Let be the mean of sample.

The sampling distribution of the is approximately normal with

Mean = = 209

SD = = 35/42 = 5.400617

Now,

P[sum of sample is less than 8400]

=P[sample mean is less than 8400/42]

= P[ < 200]

= P[( - )/ < (200 - 209)/5.400617]

= P[Z < -1.67]

= **0.0475**

According to a recent poll cholesterol levels in healthy adults
are right skewed with a mean of 209 mg/dL and a standard deviation
of 35 mg/dL. A random sample of 42 healthy adults is selected.
Describe the sampling distribution of the sample mean cholesterol
level for the sample of 42 adults.
a. X̄ ~ AN(209, 35)
b. X̄ ~ N(209, 5.4006)
c. X̄ ~ N(209, 35)
d.
X̄ ~ AN(209, 5.4006)

According to a recent poll cholesterol levels in healthy adults
are right skewed with a mean of 209 mg/dL and a standard deviation
of 35 mg/dL. A random sample of 42 healthy adults is selected. What
is the value of the sample mean cholesterol level such that 92.5%
of sample mean values are below this level?
a. 158.6
b. 216.777
c. 201.223
d. 259.4

According to a recent poll cholesterol levels in healthy adults
are normally distributed with a mean of 209 mg/dL and a standard
deviation of 35 mg/dL. A random sample of 42 healthy adults is
selected. Describe the sampling distribution of the sample mean
cholesterol level for the sample of 42 adults.

According to a recent poll, 28% of adults in a certain area
have high levels of cholesterol. They report that such elevated
levels "could be financially devastating to the regions healthcare
system" and are a major concern to health insurance providers.
According to recent studies, cholesterol levels in healthy adults
from the area average about 205 mg/dL, with a standard deviation of
about 35mg/dL, and are roughly Normally distributed. Assume that
the standard deviation of the recent studies is accurate...

According to a recent poll,26 % of adults in a certain area have

We want to compare the serum cholesterol levels of recent
immigrants with the levels found in the general population of the
US. It is known that the mean cholesterol level for a certain age
group in the US is 189 mg/dL. A random sample of 100 recent
immigrants of the same age group finds a mean of 180 mg/dL. Assume
that a population standard deviation is 49. Test at the 5% level to
see if the level for recent immigrants...

We want to compare the serum cholesterol levels of recent
immigrants with the levels found in the general population of the
US. It is known that the mean cholesterol level for a certain age
group in the US is 190 mg/dL. A random sample of 100 recent
immigrants of the same age group finds a mean of 181.52 mg/dL.

Total cholesterol levels for women under 30 in Podunk are
normally distributed with mean 173 mg/dL and standard deviation
27.2 mg/dL.
a. If a woman is selected at random, find the probability that
her total cholesterol is higher than 180 mg/dL.
b. What cholesterol levels make up the top 70% of this
distribution?

Suppose we want to compare fasting serum-cholesterol
levels among recent Chinese immigrants to Ghana with typical levels
found in the general Ghanaian population. Suppose we assume
cholesterol levels in women ages 21−40 in Ghana are approximately
normally distributed with mean 190 mg/dL. It is unknown whether
cholesterol levels among recent Chinese immigrants are higher or
lower than those in the general Ghanaian population. Let’s assume
that levels among recent female Chinese immigrants are normally
distributed with unknown mean μ. Hence...
