Question

In a college, the results of a ministry exam were distributed
normally with an average of 70 and a variance of 100. Four students
meet after receiving their grades and discuss the exam.

a) What is the expected value and its Standard deviation of the
mean of these four students? Give the best possible value with the
information you have been given.

b) What is the probability that the mean of these four students is
between 60 and 80?

c) What proportion of college students failed?(below 60)

d) What is the expected value and its Standard deviation of the
proportion of those who failed(below 60) among these four
students?

Answer #1

let Score is X so

E(X)=70 Var(X)=100 this gives SD(X) =square root of Var(X) =10

sample size =n=4

let Sample mean is M

a)

E(M)=E(X)=70

b)

we have to find P(60<M<80)

now

c)

we have to find P(X<60)

now

d)

Here n=4

probability of fail=p=0.159

Expected value=n*p=4*0.159=0.636~1

A professor at a local university noted that the grades of her
students were normally distributed with a mean of 73 and a standard
deviation of 11. All probabilities should be to four decimal
places. The professor has informed us that 7.93 percent of her
students received grades of A. What is the minimum score needed to
receive a grade of A? (Round to two decimal places) Answer Students
who made 57.93 or lower on the exam failed the course....

The time needed to complete a final examination in a particular
college course is normally distributed with a mean of 80 minutes

minutes to complete the exam, what percentage of the class will not
finish the exam in time?

Exam grades across all sections of introductory statistics at a

to answer the following questions.
(a) What percent of students scored above an 87 ?
(b) What percent of students scored below a 60 ?
(c) If the lowest 8% of students will be required to attend peer
tutoring sessions, what grade is the cutoff for being required to...

Student scores on the Stats final exam are normally distributed
with a mean of 75 and a standard deviation of 6.5
Find the probability of the following:
(use 4 decimal places)
a.) The probability that one student chosen at random scores above
an 80.
b.) The probability that 10 students chosen at random have a mean
score above an 80.
c.) The probability that one student chosen at random scores
between a 70 and an 80.
d.) The probability that...

The scores on the SAT college entrance exam are normally
distributed with a mean Math score of 480 and a standard deviation
of 100. If you select 50 students, what is the probability that
their mean Math score is more than 520. You MUST show what went
into the calculator along with your final answer rounded correctly
to 3 significant decimal places.

Suppose that the first scores for a particular college entrance
exam are distributed according to a bell-shaped, symmetric
distribution with a mean of 450 and variance of 10,000.
a) what percent of the students who take the exam score between
350 and 650?
b) any student who scores higher 550 is automatically admitted
to the colleges. what percent of the students who take the exam are
automatically admitted to the college?
c) what percent of the students who take the...
