A school newspaper reporter decides to randomly survey 12 students to see if they will attend Tet (Vietnamese New Year) festivities this year.

Based on past years, she knows that 18% of students attend Tet festivities.  We are interested in estimating the number of the 12 students surveyed who will attend the festivities.

X is the number of students willing to attend Tet (Vietnamese New Year) festivities this year.
X can take on values of 0 through 12

Use the Binomial Distribution to answer the following questions:

  1. How many of the 12 students do we expect (on average) to attend the festivities?
    Enter answer rounded to 2 decimal places.

 

______

 

  1. Find the probability that at most four students will attend.

Enter answer as decimal number rounded to 2 places and with a 0 to the left of the decimal point.
Do not enter answer as a percent.

 

_____

 

  1. Find the probability that more than two students will attend.

Enter answer as decimal number rounded to 2 decimal places with a 0 to the left of the decimal point.
Do not enter answer as a percent.

Xbar is notation for average .

Excel  =NORM.DIST()

A typical adult has an average IQ score of 105 with a standard deviation of 20.

If twenty (25) randomly selected adults are given an IQ test:

a     What is the probability that the sample mean (xbar) scores will be equal to or less than 100 points?
Find the probability that P( Xbar =< 100 )

Enter answer rounded to 2 decimal places.

Include a 0 to the left of the decimal point if your answer is less than 1.

Do not enter answer as a percent.

________

 

b     What is the probability that the sample mean scores will be between 100 and 115 points?
Find the probability that P(100 <= X =< 115)

Enter answer rounded to 3 decimal places with a 0 to the left of the decimal point.

Do not enter answer as a percent.

Suppose that the distance of fly balls hit to the outfield (in baseball) is normally distributed with a mean of 250 feet and a standard deviation of 50 feet. We randomly sample 49 fly balls.

¯   is notation for the average value of the x’s.

If ¯ = average distance in feet for 49 fly balls, then ¯ ~ _______(_______,_______)

For the following three blanks fill in the correct answers.

For blank 1 Select the appropriate distribution by entering the corresponding letter.

a      Normal Population Distribution (parent)

b      Normal Sampling Distribution

______

For blank 2 What is the numerical value of the mean( mu) ? Enter answer with 0 decimal precision (Integer).
