Question

4. The average age for a person getting married for the first time is 26 years (U.S. News and World Report, June 6, 1994). Assume the ages for first marriages have a normal distribution with a standard deviation of four years.

a) What is the probability that a person getting married for the first time is younger than 23 years of age?

b) What is the probability that a person getting married for the first time is in his or her twenties?

c) 90% of people getting married for the first time get married before what age?

Answer #1

P(X < A) = P(Z < (A - mean)/standard deviation)

Mean = 26 years

Standard deviation = 4 years

a) P(X < 23) = P(Z < (23 - 26)/4)

= P(Z < -0.75)

= **0.2266**

b) P(20 < X < 30) = P(Z < 30) - P(Z < 20)

= P(Z < (30 - 26)/4) - P(Z < (20 - 26)/4)

= P(Z < 1) - P(Z < -1.5)

= 0.8413 - 0.0668

= **0.7745**

c) Let 90% people get married for the first time by M

P(X < M) = 0.90

P(Z < (M - 26)/4) = 0.90

Take the value of z corresponding to 0.90 from standard normal distribution table.

(M - 26)/4 = 1.28

M = **31.12** years

The mean age for a person getting married for the first time is
27.3 years. Assume the ages for first marriages are normal with a
standard deviation of 4.9 years. (Give probability answers to four
decimal places.)
a) What is the probability that a person being married for the
first time is between 23.6 and 31.7 years old?
b) What is the probability that a person being married for the
first time is over 33.1 years old?
c) What is...

In 1960, census results indicated that the age at which American
men first married had a mean of 23.3 years. It is widely suspected
that young people today are waiting longer to get married. A random
sample of 40 men who married for the first time last year was
studied. The men in this sample married at an average age of 25.9
years, with a standard deviation of 5.3 years. A histogram of the
data is given to the right....

In 1980, census results indicated that the age at which American
men first married had a mean of 23.3 years. It is widely suspected
that young people today are waiting longer to get married. We want
to find out if the mean age of first marriage has increased during
the past 37 years. A random sample of 40 men who married for the
first time last year is selected, and the results found a mean of
24.2 years and a...

accident?
A 21/882 or 0.024
B 510/882 or 0.578

When it was first introduced as an antidepressant ten years ago,
the average patient with a
Prozac prescription was 32 years old. In a recent random sample of
20 prescription
holders, the average age was 25 with a standard deviation s = 10
years. Use this
information to answer the following.
If you wanted to determine if Prozac users are younger now on
average, which of
the following would be your null hypothesis?
A. ☐ = 25
B. ☐...

Let x = age in years of a rural Quebec woman at the
time of her first marriage. In the year 1941, the population
variance of x was approximately σ2 =
5.1. Suppose a recent study of age at first marriage for a random
sample of 31 women in rural Quebec gave a sample variance
s2 = 2.5. Use a 5% level of significance to
test the claim that the current variance is less than 5.1. Find a
90% confidence...
