Quiz #5

1. True or False. Justify for full credit.

 (a) The normal distribution curve is always symmetric to 0.  Hint: Where is the mean?

(b) If the variance from a data set is zero, then all the observations in this data set are identical. Hint: What does variance mean?

(c) P(AOR A complement) =1, where A complement is the complement of A.  Hint: What does complement mean?

(d) In a hypothesis testing, if the p-value is less than the significance level α, we do not have sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis.

(e) The volume of milk in a jug of milk is 128 oz. The value 128 is from a discrete data set.

The IQ scores are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15.

100 + or – sd (15) =                                                 1 sd =?       2 sds = ?  3sds = ?

2.. What is the probability that a randomly selected person has an IQ between 85 and 115? 

3. Find the 90th percentile of the IQ distribution. Hint: Using a normal table, Probability = .4500

Z = 1.645 sd

 4. If a random sample of 100 people is selected, what is the standard deviation of the sample mean?

standard deviation = sd/n

5. A random sample of 100 light bulbs has a mean lifetime of 3000 hours. Assume that the population standard deviation of the lifetime is 500 hours. Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean lifetime. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit

xbar – 1.96 SD/SQRT(100) < mean < xbar +1.96 SD/SQRT(100)  where xbar = sample mean

xbar = 3000 hours,  SD = 500 hours, n = 100
