Question

The distribution of college GPA’s for a college in South Dakota is negatively skewed. Does the Empirical rule apply to determine the percentage of students with GPA’s between one standard deviation above the mean and one standard deviation below the mean? If not, why? If so, what percentage of students have GPA’s in this range?

This is all the information i have.

Answer #1

**Solution:**

Given: The distribution of college GPA’s for a college in South Dakota is negatively skewed.

Empirical rule is applied when distribution is Bell-shaped or symmetric or Normally distributed. That means 50% of data below mean and 50% data is above.

Since given distribution of college GPA’s for a college in South Dakota is negatively skewed, we can not use Empirical rule to determine the percentage of students with GPA’s between one standard deviation above the mean and one standard deviation below the mean.

How does a positively skewed distribution differ in
appearance from a negatively skewed one?

The population distribution of college Student debt, as of May,
2019, is heavily skewed to the right with a mean debt of $30,000
and a standard deviation of $7510.
Explain why it is not possible to determine the probability
that a randomly selected college student in your area, has a debt
that’s less than $28,000
Determine the probability that a random sample of 30 college
students will have a mean debt of less than $28,000. Be sure to use

The times that college students spend studying per week have a
distribution skewed to the right with a mean of 8.7 hours and a
standard deviation of 2.2 hours. Find the probability that the mean
time spent studying per week for a random sample of 45 college
students would be a. between 8.3 and 8.9 hours.

The distribution of hours of sleep per week night, among college
students, is found to be Normally distributed, with a mean of 7.5
hours and a standard deviation of 0.75 hours (or 45 minutes). Use
this information and the 68– 95– 99.7 rule to answer the following
questions.
A) Draw the distribution, show where the mean is and show on the
x-axis the points that correspond to one and two standard
deviations from the mean
B) What range contains the...

The prices of all college textbooks follow a
bell-shaped distribution with a mean of $180 and standard deviation
of $30. Using the empirical rule, find the percentage of all
college textbooks with their prices between $120 and $240.

what type of distribution is described by the following
information?
Mean= 8.5 Median=9.0 Mode=10
A. (Left) negatively skewed
B. Symmetrical (Normal)
C. Bimodal
D. (Right) positively skewed
The mean IQ score of adults is 100, with a standard deviation

students at the college have a GPA between 2.0 and 3.6?
A. 95.44%
B. 68.26%
C. 84.13%
D. 99.74%

Suppose that grade point averages of undergraduate students at
one university have a bell-shaped distribution with a mean of 2.54
and a standard deviation of 0.44. Using the empirical rule, what
percentage of the students have grade point averages that are at
least 2.1? Please do not round your answer

Suppose that grade point averages of undergraduate students at
one university have a bell-shaped distribution with a mean of 2.56
and a standard deviation of 0.43. Using the empirical rule, what
percentage of the students have grade point averages that are
between 2.13 and 2.99?
