Find the value of z if the area under a Standard Normal curve a) to the right of z is 0.3632; b) to the left of z is 0.1131; c) between 0 and z, with z > 0, is 0.4838; d) between -z and z, with z > 0, is 0.9500. Ans : a) z = + 0.35 ( find 0.5- 0.3632 = 0.1368 in the normal table) b) z = -1.21 ( find 0.5 – 0.1131 = 0.3869 in the normal table) c ) the area between 0 to

    23. This term refers to how data spreads out or disperses within a distribution. (Points : 1) |        Variability        Critical region        Range        Mode | 24. Relevant data that are expressed in numerical form are called: (Points : 1) |        Qualitative data        Quantitative data        Standard data        Multiplicative data | 25. It is not necessary to look at the frequency distribution if the mean, median, and mode are known. (Points : 1) |        True

  • The Normal Distribution Is A Continuous, Unimodal And Symmetric Distribution

    991 Words  | 4 Pages

    The normal distribution is a continuous, unimodal and symmetric distribution. For a typical normal distribution, a mesokurtic (which means to have a moderate peak and tails for a graph), definition is one that has a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. While this is the case, there might be other normal distributions with means that are not 0 and a standard deviation that is not 1, for these cases, we use their means and standard deviation. For example, if a normal distribution had a mean of

(a) What are the mean and standard deviation of the [pic] sampling distribution? Can we say that the shape of the distribution is approximately normal? Why or why not? (10 points) (b) What is the probability that [pic] will be within 0.5 of the population mean? (5 points) (c) What is the probability that [pic] will differ from the population

Most professional baseball pitchers can throw a fastball over 145 km/h (90 mph). This gives the batter less than half a second to read the pitch, decide whether to swing, and then try to hit the ball. No wonder hitting a baseball is considered one of the hardest things to do in sports! 1. What

    at Weston Materials, Inc., a national manufacturer of unattached garages, reports that it takes two construction workers a mean of 32 hours and a standard deviation of 2 hours to erect the Red Barn model. Assume the assembly times follow the normal distribution. a. Determine the z values for 29 and 34 hours. What percent of the garages take between 32 hours and 34 hours to erect? z(29) = (29-32)/2 = -3/2 z(34) = (34-32)/2 = 1 z(32) = 0 P(32 < x < 34) = P(0< z < 1) = 0.34 b. What percent of
