Question

According to a magazine, as of January 2018, 9% of chief executive officers were women. Complete parts a through d based on a random sample of 12 CEOs.

A. What is the probability that one corporate officer was female? The probability is ________. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

b. What is the probability that fewer than four corporate officers were female? The probability is ________. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

c. What is the probability that more than two corporate officers were female? The probability is________. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

d. What are the mean and standard deviation for this distribution? The mean number of females is _______. (Type an integer or a decimal. Do not round.)

The standard deviation of the number of females is _________..(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

Answer #1

a)a)

Here, n = 12, p = 0.09, (1 - p) = 0.91 and x = 1

As per binomial distribution formula P(X = x) = nCx * p^x * (1 -
p)^(n - x)

We need to calculate P(X = 1)

P(X = 1) = 12C1 * 0.09^1 * 0.91^11

P(X = 1) = 0.3827

b)

Here, n = 12, p = 0.09, (1 - p) = 0.91 and x = 4

As per binomial distribution formula P(X = x) = nCx * p^x * (1 -
p)^(n - x)

We need to calculate P(X < 4).

P(X < 4) = (12C0 * 0.09^0 * 0.91^12) + (12C1 * 0.09^1 * 0.91^11)
+ (12C2 * 0.09^2 * 0.91^10) + (12C3 * 0.09^3 * 0.91^9)

P(X < 4) = 0.3225 + 0.3827 + 0.2082 + 0.0686

P(X < 4) = 0.9820

c)

n = 12 , p = 0.09

Here, μ = n*p = 1.08,

σ = sqrt(np(1-p)) = 0.9914

A study of the pay of corporate chief executive officers (CEOs)
examined the increase in cash compensation of the CEOs of 98
companies, adjusted for inflation, in a recent year. The mean
increase in real compensation was x = 6.9%, and the
standard deviation of the increases was s = 43%. Is this
good evidence that the mean real compensation μ of all
CEOs increased that year?
Ho:
μ = 0
(no increase)
Ha:
μ > 0
(an increase)

Annual salary plus bonus data for chief executive officers are
presented in a magazine Annual Pay Survey. A preliminary sample
showed that the standard deviation is $673 with data provided in
thousands of dollars. How many chief executive officers should be
in a sample if we want to estimate the population mean annual
salary plus bonus with a margin of error of $100,000? (Note: The
desired margin of error would be E=100 if the data are in thousands
of dollars.)...

A shareholders' group, in lodging a protest, claimed that the
mean tenure for a chief executive officer (CEO) was at least nine
years. A survey of companies reported in The Wall Street Journal

A researcher studying stress is interested in the blood pressure
measurements of chief executive officers (CEOs) of major
corporations. He believes that the mean systolic blood
pressure,
μ
, of CEOs of major corporations is more than
136
mm Hg, which is the value reported in a possibly outdated
journal article. He plans to perform a statistical test and
measures the systolic blood pressures of a random sample of
75
CEOs of major corporations.
Suppose that the population of systolic...
