Textbook Problem

A population forms a normal distribution with a mean of μ. = 80 and a standard deviation of σ = 20. a. If single score is selected from this population, how much distance would you expect, on average, between the score and the population mean? b. If a sample of n = 100 scores is selected from this population, how much distance would you expect, on average, between the sample mean and the population mean?

(a)

To determine

To Find: The distance would you expect, on average between the score and the population mean.

Explanation

Given info:

The population forms a normal distribution with a mean of μ=80 and standard deviation of σ=20. The score is n=1.

Calculation:

The problem belongs to the concept of standard error of means. The standard error provides a measure of how much distance is expected on average between a sample mean and the population mean.

The formula for calculating the standard error is,

σM=σ

(b)

To determine

To find: The distance would you expect, on average between the score and the population mean.
