Question

The pregnancy length in days for a population of new mothers can be approximated by a normal distribution with a mean of 265 days and a standard deviation of 12 days. What is the minimum pregnancy length that can be in the top 10% of pregnancy lengths?

Answer #1

We have given following information,

Mean = days

Standard deviation = days

Calculating the z-value corresponding to top 10% i.e. 90th percentiles i.e. p = 0.90

z(p=0.10) = 1.28155 (From excel =NORM.S.INV (0.90))

Z = =

1.28155 =

X = (1.28155*12) + 265

X = **280.37**

**Minimum pregnancy length
that can be in the top 10% of pregnancy lengths is**
**280.37** **days**.

The pregnancy length in days for a population of new mothers can
be approximated by a normal distribution with a mean of 269
days and a standard deviation of 11days.
(a) What is the minimum pregnancy length that can be in the top
9% of pregnancy lengths?
(b) What is the maximum pregnancy length that can be in the
bottom 4%of pregnancy lengths?

the pregnancy length in days for a population of new
mothers can be approximated by a normal distribution with a mean of
270 days and a standard deviation of 11 days. A. what is the
maximum pregnancy length that can be in the top 11% of pregnancy
lengths? B. what is the maximum pregnancy length that can be in the
bottom 6% of pregnancy lengths

According to one study among a certain group, pregnancy lengths
are approximately normally distributed with a mean of 267 days and
a standard deviation of 7 days. Approximately 12.7% of babies are
premature, which means that they are born before 37 weeks in the
pregnancy. A random sample of 75 pregnant women from this group is
observed and the length of each pregnancy is recorded. Let X be the
number of premature babies born to these mothers. What is the...

Pregnancy lengths are normally distributed with a mean of 280
days and a standard deviation of 20 days. Find the probability that
if a sample of 50 pregnancies are chosen at random that the mean
length is less than 270 days.

The length of a women's pregnancies are normally distributed
with a population mean of 266 days and a population standard
deviation of 16 days.
a. What is the probability of a randomly selected pregnancy
lasts less than 260 days?
b. A random sample of 20 pregnancies were obtained. Describe the
sampling distribution of the sample mean length of pregnancies (eg.
Is it approximately normally distributed? Why or why not? What are
the mean and standard deviation?
c. What is the...

The mean length of a human pregnancy is
265265
days, with a standard deviation of
1111
days. Use the empirical rule to determine the percentage of
women whose pregnancies are between
254254
and
276276
days. (Assume the data set has a bell-shaped
distribution.)

The length of a human pregnancy is normally distributed with a
mean of 270 days with a standard deviation of 8 days. How many days
would a pregnancy last for the shortest 15%? Round answer to 2
decimal places.

The test scores for the analytical writing section of the
Graduate Record Examination can be approximated by a normal
distribution with a mean of 155.69 and a standard deviation of
5.05.
a) What is the maximum score that can be in the bottom 11.4% of
Scores?
b) Between what two values does the middle 74% lie?
c) What is the minimum score that can be in the top 4.5%

A study reported that the length of pregnancy from conception to
birth is approximately normally distributed with mean = 272 days
and standard deviation σ = 9 days. Let Φ be the cdf of the standard
normal distribution, express the following results in terms of
Φ.
(a) (5 pts) What proportion of pregnancies last longer than 280
days?
(b) (5 pts) A pregnancy is considered full-term if it lasts
between 252 days and 298 days. What proportion of pregnancies are...

Actual lengths of pregnancy terms for a particular species of
mammal are nearly normally distributed about a mean pregnancy
length with a standard deviation of 14 days. About what percentage
of births would be expected to occur more than 42 days after the
mean pregnancy length?
