Question

The mean weight of an adult is 62 kilograms with a variance of 144. If 195 adults are randomly selected, what is the probability that the sample mean would be less than 59.5 kilograms? Round your answer to four decimal places.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that ,

mean = = 62

standard deviation = = 144=12

n = 195

= 62

= / n = 12/ 195=0.8593

P( <59.5 ) = P[( - ) / < (59.5 -62) / 0.8593]

= P(z < -2.91)

Using z table

= 0.0018

probability=0.0018

The mean weight of an adult is 69 kilograms with a variance of

that the sample mean would differ from the population mean by more
than 1.3 kilograms? Round your answer to four decimal places.

The mean weight of an adult is 67 kilograms with a variance of
81.
If 57 adults are randomly selected, what is the probability that
the sample mean would differ from the population mean by greater
than 1.5 kilograms? Round your answer to four decimal places.

The mean weight of an adult is 70 kilograms with a standard
deviation of 8 kilograms. If 87 adults are randomly selected, what

population mean by more than 1.2 kilograms? Round your answer to
four decimal places.

A racing car consumes a mean of 114 gallons of gas per race with
a variance of 49.
If 33 racing cars are randomly selected, what is the probability
that the sample mean would be less than 117.2 gallons? Round your
answer to four decimal places.

The cost of 5 gallons of ice cream has a variance of 49 with a
mean of 31 dollars during the summer. What is the probability that
the sample mean would be less than 32.3 dollars if a sample of 31

decimal places. (show work)

Suppose cattle in a large herd have a mean weight of 1169lbs and
a variance of 17,161.
What is the probability that the mean weight of the sample of
cows would differ from the population mean by greater than 12lbs if
145 cows are sampled at random from the herd? Round your answer to
four decimal places.

Let x be a random variable that represents the weights in
