Question

13) Weights of population of men has the mean of 170 pounds and the standard deviation of 27 pounds. Suppose 81 men from this population are randomly selected for a certain study

The distribution of the sample mean weight is

a)exactly normal, mean 170 lb, standard deviation 27lb

b) approximately Normal, mean 170 lb, standard deviation 0.3 lb

c)approximately Normal, mean 170 lb, standard deviation 3 lb

d)approximately Normal, mean equal to the observed value of the sample mean, standard deviation 27 lb.

Answer #1

Q.13) Given that, mean (μ) = 170 pounds (lb)

and standard deviation = 27 pounds (lb)

sample size (n) = 81

Since, the sample size is large (n > 30), the sampling
distribution of the sample mean is **approximately
normal.**

The mean and standard deviation of the sampling distribution of the sample mean are,

**Answer : c)** approximately Normal, mean 170 lb,
standard deviation 3 lb

Weights of men are normally distributed with a mean of 189 lb
and a standard deviation of 39 lb. If 20 men are randomly selected,
find the probability that they have weights with a mean between 200
lb and 230 lb.

Assume that the population of weights of men is normally

individual man is randomly selected, find the probability that his
weight will be greater than 175 lb. (Round to four decimal places
as needed.) b. Find the probability that 20 randomly selected men
will have a mean weight that is greater than 175 lb. (Round to four
decimal places as needed.) show work

probabilities. (Round all answers to four decimal places.)
(a) P(X ≤ 220) = probability the weight of a
randomly selected man is less than or equal to 220 pounds.
