Question

The mean number of calories eaten per meal for respondents is 580 with a standard deviation of 140. You have these given values:

Number of Calories per meal; Proportion of area between mean; and Z score Proportion of area beyond Z score

400; .21; .29

650; .09; .41

-Calculate the proportion of people who ate between 400 and 650 calories.

-What is the proportion of people who ate more than 650 calories?

Answer #1

-Calculate the proportion of people who ate between 400 and 650 calories.

z = (x - µ)/σ = (400 - 580)/140 = -1.29

The p-value is 0.0993.

z = (x - µ)/σ = (650 - 580)/140 = 0.5

The p-value is 0.6915.

Required proportion of people who ate between 400 and 650 calories = 0.5922

-What is the proportion of people who ate more than 650 calories?

z = (x - µ)/σ = (650 - 580)/140 = 0.5

The p-value is 0.3085.

Please give me a thumbs-up if this helps you out. Thank you!

A psychologist theorized that people can hear better when they
have just eaten a large meal. Six individuals were randomly
assigned to eat either a large meal or a small meal. After eating
the meal, their hearing was tested. The hearing ability scores
(high numbers indicate greater ability) are given in the following
table.
Group Subject Hearing
Big_meal A 21
Big_meal B 25
Big_meal C 24
Small_meal D 19
Small_meal E 23
Small_meal F 22

D1.2. State the value of a score X in the distribution that
corresponds to the 99.87th percentile rank.
D1.3. Compute the person’s z-score.
D1.4. Write an X in the distribution’s horizontal axis where the
person’s score is located.

a.) Given a normal distribution with population standard
deviation of 21 and a mean of μ = 29. If a random sample
of size 62 is drawn, find P(29 ≤ x ≤ 31).
Round to three decimal places.
b.) Find the positive z value such that 89% of the
standard normal curve lies between –z and z. (Use
2 decimal places.)
c.) For a standard normal curve, find the area between
z = 0.28 and z = 1.95. (Use 4...

Ok, let’s say there’s about 10 calories per ounce of human blood
and let’s assume that vampires have the same daily caloric need as
humans: 2,000 calories per day. This would mean that vampires would
need about 200 ounces, or 12.50 pints, of human blood per day. This
would require the vampire to fully exsanguinate about on 1.5 adult
humans per day (night?)!
Luckily for us mortals, it turns out that vampires need less
than 2,000 calories per day (they...
