Question

During a certain week (many years ago) the mean price of gasoline in California was $2.024 per gallon with a standard deviation of $0.053. A random sample of 47 gas stations was drawn from this population. What is the probability that the mean price of this sample was more than $2.042? Show your work.

Probability = nothing (round answer to four decimal places)

Answer #1

Mean, = $2.024 per gallon

Standard deviation, = $0.053 per gallon

Sample size, n = 47

P( < A) = P(Z < (A - )/)

= = $2.024

=

=

= 0.00773

P(mean price of this sample was more than $2.042) = P( > 2.042)

= 1 - P( < 2.042)

= 1 - P(Z < (2.042 - 2.024)/0.00773)

= 1 - P(Z < 0)

= 1 - 0.5

= **0.5**

During a certain week the mean price of gasoline in New York
City was $3.75 per gallon with the standard deviation of $0.43.
Assume the variable is normally distributed.
A) If a gas station is randomly selected from this city what is
the probability that the price is less than $3.89 that week? Write
your answers with four decimal places.
B) If a gas station is randomly selected from this city what is
the probability that the price is more...

Find the probability and interpret the results. If convenient,
use technology to find the probability. During a certain week the
mean price of gasoline was $2.717 per gallon. A random sample of
32 gas stations is drawn from this population. What is the
probability that the mean price for the sample was between $2.69
and $2.72 that week? Assume σ equals=$0.047. The probability
that the sample mean was between $2.696 and $2.728 is

Determine if the finite correction factor should be used. If
so, use it in your calculations when you find the probability. In a
sample of 800 gas stations, the mean price for regular gasoline at
the pump was $ 2.876 per gallon and the standard deviation was
$0.008 per gallon. A random sample of size 45 is drawn from this
population. What is the probability that the mean price per gallon
is less than $2.872? The probability that the mean...

3. A company that supplies gasoline nationwide reports that the
average price per gallon of regular gasoline is $ 8,150, with a
standard deviation of $ 428. There are 750 gasoline stations in the
country. Suppose a random sample from 40 gas stations is
selected.
b. What is the mean or expected value of the sample distribution
of the means?
c. What is the standard error of the sample distribution of the
means?
d. Write the syntax for the sample...

Determine if the finite correction factor should be used. If so,
use it in your calculations when you find the probability. In a
sample of 900 gas stations, the mean price for regular gasoline at
the pump was $2.884 per gallon and the standard deviation was 0.008
per gallon. A random sample of size 50 is drawn from the
population. What is the probability that the mean price per gallon
is less than$2.883?

Determine if the finite correction factor should be used. If
so, use it in your calculations when you find the probability. In a
sample of 700 gas stations, the mean price for regular gasoline at
the pump was $2.863 per gallon and the standard deviation was
0.009 per gallon. A random sample of size 45 is drawn from this
population. What is the probability that the mean price per gallon
is less than 2.859?

The Canadian Energy industry recently reported that the average
price for a litre of gasoline in Vancouver is $1.09. They
determined this by sampling a total of 28 different gas stations,
finding the standard deviation of these gas stations in the sample
to be $0.06 cents. a) Create a 72% confidence interval
for the population parameter of interest in this case. Be sure to
show your work . b) Create a 96% confidence interval for
the population parameter of interest...
