Question
Suppose a simple random sample of size
nequals=200
is obtained from a population whose size is
Upper N equals 30 comma 000N=30,000
and whose population proportion with a specified characteristic is
p equals 0.6 .p=0.6.
Complete parts ​(a) through​ (c)
below.
​(a) Describe the sampling distribution of
ModifyingAbove p with caretp.
Choose the phrase that best describes the shape of the sampling distribution below.

A.
Not normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis greater than or equals 10.np(1−p)≥10.

B.
Not normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis less than 10.np(1−p)<10.

C.
Approximately normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis greater than or equals 10.np(1−p)≥10.

D.
Approximately normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis less than 10.np(1−p)<10.

Determine the mean of the sampling distribution of
ModifyingAbove p with caretp.

mu Subscript ModifyingAbove p with caret Baseline equalsμp=nothing
​(Round to one decimal place as​ needed.)

Step 1

It is given that n is 200, N is 30,000 and p is 0.6.

Step 2

In general, the sampling distribution is approximately normal if n is less than or ...
