Question

Descriptive analysis revealed that the mean Test 3 score of all
63 students in Dr. Kilman’s statistics courses was an 80.
Similarly, the standard deviation for all students’ Test 3 scores
was found to be 16. Assume the Test 3 scores are approximately
normally distributed. Next, suppose a random *sample* of 36
students is drawn. Let be the mean Test 3 score of such
a sample.

12. Since the standard deviation of the sampling distribution () is ______ than the population standard deviation (), the sampling distribution curve will be ________ than the population distribution curve.

13. What is the probability that the mean score of a random sample of 36 Test 3 scores is a 75 or higher? That is, calculate . Round your solution to four decimal places.

Answer #1

12)

Since the standard deviation of the sampling distribution () is less than the population standard deviation(), the sampling distribution curve will be narrower than the population distribution curve.

13) P( > 75)

= P(Z > -1.875)

= 1 - P(Z < -1.875)

= 1 - 0.0304

= 0.9696

Descriptive analysis revealed that the mean Test 3 score of all

(3 pts) For students in a certain region, scores of students on
a standardized test approximately follow a normal distribution with
mean μ=543.4 and standard deviation σ=30. In completing the parts
below, you should use the normal curve area table that is included
in your formula packet.
(a) What is the probability that a single randomly selected
student from among all those in region who took the exam will have
a score of 548 or higher?

For parts (b)...

Dr. Stoney and Dr. McAuliffe both teach statistics at Shochoe
Bottom University. Of interest is the difference in the mean score
earned by all of Dr. Stoney’s students on the test and the mean
score earned by all of Dr. McAuliffe’s students on the test. A
simple random sample of 72 students who took Dr. Stoney’s test was
selected, the mean score on the test for this sample of 72 students
was 78.3 with a standard deviation of 11.2. An...

A sample of 25 randomly selected students has a mean test score
