Question

Chapter 3 Statistics

A certain group of test had pulse rates with a mean of 73.8 beats per minute and a standard deviation of 10.8 beats per minute. Would it be unusual for one of the test subjects to have a pulse rate of 45.4 beats per minute?

a) What is the minimum "usual" value?

b) What is the maximum "usual" value?

c) Is 45.4 beats per minute an unusual pulse rate? Explain.

Answer #1

This is a normal distribution question with

a) Given in the question

P(X < x) = 0.05

This implies that

P(Z < -1.6448) = 0.05

With the help of formula for z, we can say that

**x = 56.0356**

b) Given in the question

P(X < x) = 0.95

This implies that

P(Z < 1.64485) = 0.95

With the help of formula for z, we can say that

**x = 91.5644**

c) x = 45.4

P(x < 45.4)=?

The z-score at x = 45.4 is,

z = -2.6296

This implies that

P(x < 45.4) = P(z < -2.6296) = {0.0042

**It is unusual value**

PS: you have to refer z score table to find the final probabilities.

Claim: The mean pulse rate (in beats per minute) of adult
males is equal to 6969 bpm. For a random sample of 165 adult
males, the mean pulse rate is 70.2 bpm and the standard deviation
is 10.8 bpm. Find the value of the test statistic. The value of the
test statistic is....
