In Exercises 11–14, use the population of {34, 36, 41, 51} of the amounts of caffeine (mg/12 oz) in Coca-Cola Zero, Diet Pepsi, Dr Pepper, and Mellow Yello Zero. Assume that random samples of size n = 2 are selected with replacement. 

Sampling Distribution of the Median Repeat Exercise 11 using medians instead of means.


Expert Answer

Step 1


The two values are randomly selected with replacement from the population {34, 36, 41, 51}, the 16 different possible samples are {(34, 34), (34,36), (34, 41), (34, 51), (36, 34), (36, 36), (36, 41), (36, 51), (41, 34), (41, 36), (41, 41), (41, 51), (51, 34), (51, 36), (51, 41), (51, 51)}.

Step 2

Here, the equally16 samples are likely with the probability of 1/16.

The formula to find the sample median is,
