In a random sample of 1149 men aged 35–44, the mean total cholesterol level was 212 mg/dl with a standard deviation of 38.7 mg/dl. If total cholesterol levels are normally distributed, what is the highest total cholesterol level a man in this age range can have and still be in the bottom 5%? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

Jerzy has drawn certain conclusions from his database of 65,597 scores on a certain test. To check the robustness of his conclusions, he decides to recompute his statistics after discarding the top and bottom 10% of the scores.

Answer #1

Solution:-

1) The highest total cholesterol level a man in this age range can have and still be in the bottom 5% is 148.34.

Mean = 212, S.D = 38.7

p-value for the bottom 5% = 0.05

z-score for the p-value = - 1.645

By applying normal distribution:-

x = 148.34

2) The annual consumption amount at the tenth percentile is 11.72.

Mean = 17.1, S.D = 4.2

p-value for the 10th percentile = 0.10

z-score for the p-value = - 1.282

By applying normal distribution:-

x = 11.7156
