Question

For the population, u= 15 and o=4. If the researcher randomly samples 36 participants, what is the average distance in the distribution of sample means?

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that ,

mean = = 15

standard deviation = = 4

n = 36

sample distribution of sample mean is ,

=

= 15

sampling distribution of standard deviation

= / n = 4 / 36=0.67

= 0.67

Suppose a random sample of n=36 measurements is selected from a
population with mean u=256 and variance o^2=144.
a. Describe the sampling distribution of the sample mean x bar.
(Hint: describe the shape, calculate the mean and the standard
deviation of the sampling distribution of x bar.
b. What is the probability that the sample mean is greater than
261?

A normal distribution has a mean of u = 54 and a
standard deviation of o = 6.
a. What is the probability of randomly selecting a
score less than X = 51?
b. What is the probability of selecting a sample of
n = 4 scores with a mean less than M = 51?
c. What is the probability of selecting a sample of
n = 36 scores with a mean less than M = 51?

A researcher is interested in drawing a sample of potential
voters from a population of 10 individuals. She settles on a sample
size of 5, and sends out random invitations to 5 of the voters, by
picking their names randomly from a list. How many possible samples
could she draw from this population?
Sampling without replacement
The researcher realizes that she made a mistake! She
accidentally asked the selected some of the same voters more than
once....

36 men’s heights, it is reported that the standard error
of the mean is 0.5 inches. Three of the following
statements are true, while one is false. Which statement is
false?
A. If a new sample of n = 36 men’s heights is
collected, the standard error of the mean might not equal 0.5
inches.
B. The standard error (0.5 inches) is an estimated value of the
standard deviation of the sample...
