h A l What is the sampling distribution of 1 851 For the population in Example 21 nd the sampling distribution of SI for a b an SRS of size 3 without replacement an SRS of size 3 with replacement For each draw the histogram of the sampling distribution of y Which sampling distribution has the smaller variance and why One way of selecting an SRS is to assign a number to every unit in the population then use a random number table to select units from the list A page from a random number table is given in Appendix E Explain why each of the following methods will or will not result in an SRS a The population has 742 units and we want to take an SRS of size 30 Divide the random list into segments of size 3 and throw out any sequences of three digits not between 001 and 742 If a number occurs that has already been included in the sample ignore it If we used this method with the rst line of random numbers in Appendix E the sequence of threedigit numbers would be 749 700 699 611 136 We would include units 700 699 611 and 136 in the sample For the situation in part a when a random threedigit number is larger than 742 eliminate only the rst digit and start the sequence with the next digit With this procedure the rst ve numbers would be 497 006 611 136 and 264 The population has 170 items Using the procedures described in part a or b we would throw away many of the numbers from the list To avoid this waste divide every random three digit number by 170 and use the rounded remainder as the unit in the sample If the remainder is 0 use unit 170 As in parts a and b eliminate the duplicates For the sequence in the rst row of the random number table the numbers generated would be 69 20 19 101 136 The population has 200 items Take twodigit sequences of random numbers and put a decimal point in front of each to obtain the sequence 74 97 00 69 96 Then multiply each decimal by 200 to get the units for the sample convert 00 to 200 148 194 200 138 192 A school has 20 homeroom classes each homeroom class contains between 20 and 40 students To select a student for the sample draw a random number between 1 and 20 then select a student at random from the chosen class Do not include duplicates in your sample For the situation described in pait e select a random number between 1 and 20 to choose a class Then select a second random number between 1 and 40 If the number corresponds to a student in the class then select that student if the second random number is larger than the class size then ignore this pair of random numbers and stait again As usual eliminate duplicates from your list pediatric outpatient clinic They found i unassisted walking among the children Age months 1 9 10 11 Number of children 13 35 44 a Construct a histogram of the distribut

Jan39er Puzzles stated I ve noticed over the last several issues there have been no winners from the South in your contests You always say that winners are picked at random so does this mean you re getting fewer entries from the South In response the editors took a random sample of 1000 entries from the last few contests and found that 175 of those came from the South 3 Find a 95 CI for the percentage of entries that come from the South b According to Statistical Abstractof the United States 309 of the US population live in states that the editors considered to be in the South Is there evidence from your con dence interval that the percentage of entries from the South differs from the percentage of persons living in the South The data set agsrsdat also contains information on other
