(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected pregnancy lasts less than

143143

days?The probability that a randomly selected pregnancy lasts less than

143143

days is approximately

nothing.

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

Interpret this probability. Select the correct choice below and fill in the answer box within your choice.

(Round to the nearest integer as needed.)

A.If 100 pregnant individuals were selected independently from this population, we would expect

nothing

pregnancies to last more than

143143

days.

B.If 100 pregnant individuals were selected independently from this population, we would expect

nothing

pregnancies to last less than

143143

days.

C.If 100 pregnant individuals were selected independently from this population, we would expect

nothing

pregnancies to last exactly

143143

days.(b) Suppose a random sample of

1919

pregnancies is obtained. Describe the sampling distribution of the sample mean length of pregnancies.The sampling distribution of

x overbarx

is

▼

normal

skewed right

skewed left

with

mu Subscript x overbarμxequals=nothing

and

sigma Subscript x overbarσxequals=nothing.

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

(c) What is the probability that a random sample of

1919

pregnancies has a mean gestation period of

143143

days or less?The probability that the mean of a random sample of

1919

pregnancies is less than

143143

days is approximately

nothing.

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

Interpret this probability. Select the correct choice below and fill in the answer box within your choice.

(Round to the nearest integer as needed.)

A.If 100 independent random samples of size

nequals=1919

pregnancies were obtained from this population, we would expect

nothing

sample(s) to have a sample mean of

143143

days or more.

B.If 100 independent random samples of size

nequals=1919

pregnancies were obtained from this population, we would expect

nothing

sample(s) to have a sample mean of

143143

days or less.

C.If 100 independent random samples of size

nequals=1919

pregnancies were obtained from this population, we would expect

nothing

sample(s) to have a sample mean of exactly

143143

days.(d) What is the probability that a random sample of

4848

pregnancies has a mean gestation period of

143143

days or less?The probability that the mean of a random sample of

4848

pregnancies is less than

143143

days is approximately

nothing.

(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

Interpret this probability. Select the correct choice below and fill in the answer box within your choice.

(Round to the nearest integer as needed.)

A.If 100 independent random samples of size

nequals=4848

pregnancies were obtained from this population, we would expect

nothing

sample(s) to have a sample mean of exactly

143143

days.

B.If 100 independent random samples of size

nequals=4848

pregnancies were obtained from this population, we would expect

nothing

sample(s) to have a sample mean of

143143

days or less.

C.If 100 independent random samples of size

nequals=4848

pregnancies were obtained from this population, we would expect

nothing

sample(s) to have a sample mean of

143143

days or more.(e) What might you conclude if a random sample of

4848

pregnancies resulted in a mean gestation period of

143143

days or less?This result would be

▼

unusual,

expected,

so the sample likely came from a population whose mean gestation period is

▼

less than

equal to

greater than

147147

days.(f) What is the probability a random sample of size

1919

will have a mean gestation period within

88

days of the mean?The probability that a random sample of size

1919

will have a mean gestation period within

88

days of the mean is

nothing.
