STA 2122 1 REVIEW 11 not all inclusive TrueFalse The standard deviation of the sample mean is always equal to the standard deviation of the population The number of defective vending machines on a college campus is an example of a continuous random variable Every normal distribution has a mean 0 and standard deviation l A binomial random variable is a discrete random variable N E 4 V39 O Which of the following is a valid probability distribution a X lpX b X lpX 0 X lpX d X lpX 30 35 0 36 4 1 L20 0 L65 3 L52 4l65 2 L40 3 10 6 22 0 11 In an article about the time college freshmen use to study each week it was reported that the mean is 68 hours with a standard deviation of 25 hours If 100 freshmen are randomly selected what is the probability that their mean weekly study time exceeds seven hours Suppose in a recent national election 40 of the voters were men If a random sample of 25 voters was selected what is the probability that more than 10 but less than 20 were women A traffic study conducted at one point on an interstate highway shows that vehicle speeds are normally distributed with a mean of 635 miles per hour and a standard deviation of 48 mph a If a vehicle is randomly selected what is the probability that its speed is between 55 and 65 mph b 60 of the speeds in the distribution exceed what value Find the mean and variance of the following probability distribution x

held constant It is desirable for the width of a con dence interval to be large A type I error is committed whenever the null hypothesis is incorrectly rejected For an uppertailed hypothesis test if the critical value of z is 233 and the test statistic is 257 the null hypothesis should be accepted 2 Ifa 90 con dence interval for p is 35 45 what is meant by 90 con dence 3 In a random sample of 150 clerical workers 30 exhibit an intense dislike for their jobs Calculate a 94 con dence interval for the proportion of clerical workers who exhibit an intense dislike for their jobs 4 A telephone answering service records the length of each call A random sample of 12 reports yields a mean length of 32 minutes with a standard deviation of 7 minute Calculate a 95 con dence interval for the mean length of phone calls for this answering service 5 A market research rm wishes to determine the mean number of hours families in a particular community watch television per week A random sample of 300 families results in a mean viewing time of 268 hours with a standard deviation of 73 Do you have enough evidence to conclude the mean viewing time in this community exceeds 25 hours Use at 07 6 De ne a Type I and Type II error in terms of problem 5 7 In a random sample of 200 college students 45 had taken Statistics in high school Using 0c 04 do you have enough evidence to conclude the proportion

139 261 4 276 364 5 z 427 yes 6 Type I Conclude the mean Viewing time per family in this community is greater than 25 hours when in fact it is less than or equal to 25 hours Type II Conclude the mean Viewing time per family in this community is equal to or less than 25 hours when in fact it is greater than 25 hours 7 z 82 no 4122 STA 2122 Review Questions for Chapter 2 DIRECTIONS When using a
