1 The distribution ofvalues of a statistic in all possible samples ofthe same size from the same population is known as 2 Twenty multiplechoice questions are on an exam each having responses a b c d or e Suppose a student guesses the answer to each question and the guesses from question to question are independent Let X be the number of questions for which the student has the same answer as the person sitting next to him on his right The distribution ofX is Binomial 3 A random sample of size 25 is to be taken from a population that is normally distributed with mean 60 and standard deviation 10 The average Yof the observations in our sample is to be computed The sampling distribution of Y is 4 I take a SRS of size n from a population that has mean u 80 and standard deviation 0 20 How big should n be so that the sampling distribution of Yhas standard deviation 07 1 5 Suppose we select an SRS of size n100 from a large population having proportion p of successes Let X be the number of successes in the sample For which value of p would it be safe to assume the sampling distribution ofX is approximately normal B 19 C 0975 D 09999 E More than one ofthe above is correct 6 A college basketball player makes 80 of his free throws Over the course of the season he will attempt 100 free throws Assuming freethrow attempts are independent what is the probability that he makes at least 90 of these attempts 7 Suppose we have a random sample size n 30 from N5 J52 What is the chance that 7c is less than 54 8 For which ofthe following does it make sense to talk about a sampling distribution A Sample mean B Sample variance C Population mean D Two ofthe above 9 The SAT scores of entering freshman at University Y are N1215 1102 A random sample of 100 freshman is sampled with Ybeing the sample mean of the 100 scores from University Y The probability that 17 is less than 1190 is 10 The blood cholesterol of a large population of adult males 50 60 years old is distributed with a mean of 200 mgdl with a standard deviation of 20 mgdl Assume that blood cholesterol measurements are normally distributed What is the probability that a randomly selected individual from this age group will have a blood cholesterol level below 250 mgdl 11 Using information from the previous problem what is the probability that the mean of a sample of 100 men from this age group will have a value below 250 mgdl 12 lffa N3022 what is the probability that f7 gt33 6293 9332 3707 0668 5000 r099 Keys l A A O 7 8 Sampling distribution B202 N6022 n400 B 00062 09394 D 9 00116 10 09938 11 1 12D A
