Question

The average teacher salary in Nebraska is $52,925 with a standard deviation of $12,115. We collect a random sample of 50 Nebraska teachers and record their salary.

Part 1: (6 pts) Check all necessary conditions in detail (not just yes or no) and give the sampling model and parameters to the nearest dollar.

Part 2: (6 pts) What is the probability that the average teacher salary in our sample of 50 teachers is less than $50,000? Find the z-score and probability. Be sure you use the appropriate p-value notation!

Then write a sentence that summarizes your results.

Answer #1

Part 1:

The conditions are:

The data follow the normal probability distribution.

The sample is a simple random sample from its population.

Each individual in the population has an equal probability of being selected in the sample.

The sampling distribution is:

µx = 55925

σx = σ/√n = 12115/√50 = 1713.32

Part 2:

z = (x - µ)/σ/√n

z = (50000 - 55925)/12115/√50

z = -3.46

P (z < -3.46) = 0.0003

The probability that the average teacher salary in our sample of 50 teachers is less than $50,000 is 0.0003.

The average teacher’s salary is $45,000. Assume a normal
distribution with standard deviation equal to $10,000. a) What is
the probability that a randomly selected teacher makes greater than
$65,000 a year? b) If we sample 100 teachers’ salaries, what is the
probability that the sample mean will be greater than $65,000?

To estimate a student’s average score, we need to
collect a sample. Assume population standard deviation is equal to

fuel economy information, allows users to share gas mileage
information on their vehicles. The histogram below shows the
distribution of gas mileage in miles per gallon (MPG) from 14 users
who drive a 2012 Toyota Prius. The sample mean is 53.3 MPG and the
