Question

The mean ACT test score reported by the college's institutional Research Depart was 20.8, with a standard deviation of 4.8. If all possible random samples of size 40 are taken from this population, determine the following: ( Round all final answers to the nearest tenthousandth)

A) mean and standard error of the sampling distribution of the mean (use the correct name and symbol for each)

B) percent of sample means for a sample of 40 college students that are greater than 25

C) probability that sample means for samples of size 40 fall between 18 and 22

D) which sample mean can we expect to represent the first quartile

Answer #1

Given that:

Mean Score = 20.8

Standard Deviation = 4.8

n = 40

(A)

Hence, for sampling distribution,

(B)

(C)

(D) YOUR ANSWER IS **20.2881.**

First quartile will be reflected by p-value of 0.25.

It reflects z-value of -0.6745.

Hence, it reflects X-value of * 20.2881* using
z-score function.

I hope this solves your doubt.

Do give a thumbs up if you find this helpful.

) The mean ACT mathematics score for 60 randomly selected high
school students is 20.6. Assume the population standard deviation
is 5.4. The mean ACT science score for 75 other randomly selected
high school students is 20.8. Assume the population standard
deviation is 5.6. At ? = 0.01, can you reject the claim that the
ACT math and ACT science scores are equal? a.) Verify that 1.) Both
population standard deviations are known. _____ 2.) The samples
taken are random....

To estimate the mean score ? of those who took the Medical

Statistics students believe that the mean score on a first
statistics test is 65. The instructor thinks that the mean score is
higher. She samples 10 statistics students and obtains the
scores:
Grades
85.5
73.5
62.7
74.4
73.5
96
74.4
68.4
68.4
88
Test grades are believed to be normally distributed.
Use a significance level of 5%.
State the alternative hypothesis: HA:
μ>65
State the mean of the sample: 76.48 (Round to two
decimal places.)
State the standard error of...

A college professor wants to estimate the difference in mean
test scores of students who have taken his statistics and genetics
classes in the past 10 years. He selects a random sample of 20
student records from the statistics course and a random sample of
22 student records from the genetics course. These two samples were
independent random samples. The study provided the results shown in
the table below. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the true
difference in population...

Low-density
lipoprotein (LDL) is an important part of the blood cholesterol
test. The mean LDL for people 65 and older is 130 with a standard
deviation of 12. The mean LDL for people under 40 is 100 with a
standard deviation of 12. A health center had a free blood
cholesterol test for all people in the community. The blood test
results for the people under 40 and 65 an over are given in the
attached excel file called "Cholesterol...
