Question

in a study reported in the Flurry Blog on Oct. 29, 2012, the mean age of tablet users was 34 yrs, with a standard deviation of 15 years. Assuming a normal distribution, what is the approximate probability of picking a random sample of 40 tablet users with a mean age between 31 and 35 yrs?

.56, between z = +1.27 and -0.42 |
||

.56, between z = 31 and 35 |
||

.56, between z = -1.27 and +0.42 |
||

.56 between z = -2.27 and +0.42 |
||

none of the above |

Answer #1

Given that the mean age of tablet users was = 34 yrs, with a standard deviation of = 15 years. Assuming a normal distribution the probability of mean age between = 31 and = 35 years is calculated by finding the Z score at 31 and 35 as:

and at Mean = 35

Thus the probability P(31<<35) = P(-1.27 < Z < 0.42) the probability of a normal distribution can be calculated using the excel formula for normal distribution which is =NORM.S.DIST(0.42,TRUE)-NORM.S.DIST(-1.27,TRUE), thus the probability is computed as 0.56.

So, the correct answer would be:

0.56, between z = -1.27 and +0.42

According to a government study among adults in the 25- to
34-year age group, the mean amount spent per year on reading and
entertainment is $1,896. Assume that the distribution of the
amounts spent follows the normal distribution with a standard
deviation of $596. (Round your z-score computation
to 2 decimal places and final answers to 2 decimal
places.)

Question 6
An investigator is looking at the relationship between
periodontal disease and the onset of hypertension. Suppose the
investigator decides to look at height as a variable that may
confound the relationship between exposure and case status in his
study. After collecting information about the height of each
participant, he assembles a database that approximates height with
the normal distribution.
A) Assuming the mean of the distribution is 176.2 cm with a
standard deviation of 17.5 cm, what are...
