Question

The weights of loads hauled by a trucking company approximately follow a bell-shaped (normal) frequency curve with a mean of 15 thousand pounds and a standard deviation of 4 thousand pounds. Note that: 15 ± (1)(4) ==> 11 to 19; 15 ± (2)(4) ==> 7 to 23; 15 ± (3)(4) ==> 3 to 27 . According to the empirical rule, approximately __________ percent of loads weigh between 3 thousand pounds and 27 thousand pounds.

Group of answer choices a)90 b)68 c)95 d)80 e)99.7

Answer #1

Solution:

Given a distribution which is bell-shaped (normal) have

= 15 and = 4

Now ,

3 = 15 - 12 = 15 - (3 * 4) = - 3

27 = 15 + 12 = 15 + (3 * 4) = + 3

Using Empirical rule

P(Between 3 and 27) = P(between - 3 and + 3) = 0.997 = 99.7%

Answer : **99.7**

Option e is correct.

The distribution of weights of a sample of 500 toddlers is
symmetric and bell-shaped.
According to the Empirical Rule, what percent of the weights will
lie between plus or
minus three sigmas (standard deviations) from the mean?
Group of answer choices
68%
34%
99.7%
95%
None of these
If a sample of toddlers has an estimated mean weight of 52
pounds and a standard
deviation of 4 pounds, then 95% of the toddlers have weights
between which two
values?
If...

A particular population, for which the frequency curve is
bell-shaped (normal), has a mean of μ=100 and a standard deviation
of σ=18. For samples of size n=36 consider the sampling
distribution of the sample mean ("xbar").
Note that 18 36=3 and that
100±(1)(3)⟹97 to 103
100±(2)(3)⟹94 to 106
100±(3)(3)⟹91 to 109
According to the empirical rule, approximately _____
percent of samples of size 36 will produce a sample mean between 97
and 103.
