It is recommended that you complete this week’s MyLab Math assignments before you

submit this assignment.

For each discussion, students will post their answers to the question set.

Each question is worth 2 points.

Q1. A survey of 500 adults aged 18 – 29 years of age revealed that 285 chose to eat fast food for

dinner at least once in the past week. Find the sample proportion of individuals surveyed who ate

fast food for dinner at least once in the past week.

Q2. Determine

25,000.

and

from the given parameters. Assume the size of the population is

n = 200 p = 0.75

Q3. Sixteen percent of Americans do not have health insurance. Suppose a simple random

sample of 500 Americans is obtained. In a random sample of 500 Americans, what is the

probability that more than 20% do not have health insurance?

Q4. A simple random sample of size n=180 is obtained from a population whose size=20,000 and

whose population proportion with a specified characteristic is p=0.45. Determine whether the

sampling distribution has an approximate normal distribution. Show your work that supports your

conclusions.

Q5. Using the values in Q4, calculate the probability of obtaining x=72 or more individuals with a

specified characteristic.

HINT: remember to convert the number of individuals into a sample proportion

Discussion #8 (normal probability distribution)

It is recommended that you complete this week’s MyLab Math assignments before you

submit this assignment.

For each discussion, students will post their answers to the question set.

Each question is worth 2 points.

Q1. Use the graph of the given normal distribution to identify μ and σ. (Read page # 331 of text

book)

Q2. Identify the two inflection points (read page #332 of text book) for the distribution in Q1.

Q3. Find the following probability of the standard normal random variable Z. (round to 4 decimal

places)

P(Z ≥ –2.31)

Q4. A pediatrician obtains the heights of her three year-old female patients. The heights are

approximately normally distributed, with mean 38.72 inches and SD 3.17 inches. Determine the

proportion of three-year-old females who have a height less than or equal to 35 inches. (round to

4 decimal places)

Q5. Find the z-score such that the area under the standard normal curve to the right is 0.10.

(round to two decimal places)

from the given population parameters and the sample size.

μ = 84 σ = 12 n = 30

Q2. IQ scores are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. What is

the probability a random sample of 20 people have a mean IQ score greater than 110?

Q3. Home sizes in Anytown, USA have a mean of 2400 square feet and a standard deviation of

450 square feet. What is the probability that a random sample of 50 homes in Anytown, USA has

a mean square footage less than 2200 square feet?

Q4. In your own words, what does the central limit theorem tell us? (Page #373 of text book)

Q5. A simple random sample of size n=40 is obtained from a population with

Does the population distribution need to be normally distributed for the sampling distribution of

to be approximately normally distributed? Why or why not? What is the mean and standard

deviation of the sampling distribution?
