Question

Scores for a common standardized college aptitude test are normally distributed with a mean of 502 and a standard deviation of 109. Randomly selected men are given a Test Prepartion Course before taking this test. Assume, for sake of argument, that the test has no effect.

If 1 of the men is randomly selected, find the probability that his score is at least 558.6.
P(X > 558.6) = 
Enter your answer as a number accurate to 4 decimal places. NOTE: Answers obtained using exact z-scores or z-scores rounded to 3 decimal places are accepted.

If 12 of the men are randomly selected, find the probability that their mean score is at least 558.6.
P(M > 558.6) = 
Enter your answer as a number accurate to 4 decimal places. NOTE: Answers obtained using exact z-scores or z-scores rounded to 3 decimal places are accepted.

If the random sample of 12 men does result in a mean score of 558.6, is there strong evidence to support the claim that the course is actually effective?

  • No. The probability indicates that is is possible by chance alone to randomly select a group of students with a mean as high as 558.6.
  • Yes. The probability indicates that is is (highly ?) unlikely that by chance, a randomly selected group of students would get a mean as high as 558.6.
