Question

Use the following information for Questions 28-32. Final grades in a class are a weighted average of the midterm (25%) and final (75%) exams: G = 0.25M + 0.75F. Each exam has 100 possible points. Suppose the average and standard deviation of scores on the midterm were 71 and 19 respectively, while the values for the final exam were 69 and 23. Suppose further that the correlation coefficient between the two exams is 0.50.

1. What is the mean of the final grades in class?

a. 65.1

b. 67.2

c. 68.6

d. 69.5

2. What is the covariance between the midterm and the final?

a. 202.5

b. 218.5

c. 223.6

d. 231.6

3. What is the variance of the final grades in class?

a. 402

b. 418

c. 423

d. 431

4. What is the standard deviation of the final grades in class?

a. 18.11

b. 19.27

c. 20.05

d. 21.93

5. Suppose the final grades are normally distributed with a mean and standard deviation found in Question 1 and Question 4. What fraction of students will get an A if they need more than 93 points to obtain that grade?

a. 0.8790

b. 0.5632

c. 0.3751

d. 0.1210

The professor of a Statistics class has stated that,
historically, the distribution of final exam grades in the course
resemble a Normal distribution with a mean final exam mark of
μ=60μ=60% and a standard deviation of σ=9σ=9%.

final exam mark in this course will be at least 73%? Answer to four
decimals.

Your statistics class will have two midterm exams and a final
exam at the end of the term. The scores you earn on the three exams
will:
a) be independent of one another because the outcome on one exam
is related to the outcome on the other exams.
b) be independent of one another because the outcome on one exam
is not related to the outcome on any of the other exams.
c) not be independent of one another because...

Grading on the Curve: A final exam for a large class of students
is constructed so that final exam grades follow a normal
distribution with mean µ and standard deviation σ. The class is
graded on the curve, which means that a final exam score of x
translates into a final exam letter grade according to the
following table:
Grade Range
A µ + σ < x
B µ < x < µ + σ
C µ − σ <...

Suppose that you are taking a course.
There are two midterms and a final exam. Each midterm impacts 25%
of the course grade while final exam impacts 50% of the grade. The
first and second midterm scores follow a normal distribution with
mean 84 points and the standard deviation of 9 points and mean 85
points and the standard deviation of 6. Assume that the final exam
is also normally distributed with mean 87 and standard deviation of
6 points....
